Common Projects footwear defines understated luxury and have become synonymous with quiet, clean, simple sneakers. I have been an admirer of the brand for some time now and considering their collection, in particular, their Spring Summer 2015 collection, designed with minimalist sensibilities, it should come as no surprise to see the New York-based brand featured on Minimalissimo.
Common Projects is a collaboration between designers Flavio Girolami and Prathan Poopat. Inspired by the lines and shapes of everyday objects, they design their pieces with a tailored approach, using the finest materials and techniques.
The footwear’s refined appearance is exemplified by the designer’s effort to eliminate details and allow the sneakers to speak for themselves. Girolami & Poopat write:
We try to do something that is classic and timeless. You only get to introduce yourself once, so we approach each thing like it’s a first impression and we try not to fuck that up. — interview with BoF.
