Unfortunately, the WM collection had already set sail for Tokyo (but we’ll be sure to catch up with them in a few weeks during our Japan expedition). We did, however, get plenty of time with Common Projects: Simon and Hannes got hands on with the footwear to select the best offerings for next Spring, and I also got a bit of time to chat with CP co-founder and all-around nice guy Pete Poopat, about the current state of affairs at the company, and about how he and partner Flavio Girolami keep creative momentum.
Stay tuned for a full interview - and of course for a very solid Spring lineup from the sneaker makers par excellence. It takes a subtle eye to appreciate everything that makes up the CP collection, but Pete and Flavio haven’t been resting on their laurels, and the Spring ‘12 collection is proof.
