Fans of Maison Martin Margiela will know that the ‘Pollock’ splattered Replica is a seasonal staple for the brand – we take a look at the work of the iconic artist that inspired the stand-out sneaker.
Margiela’s Replica sneaker is one of the brand’s most recognisable recurring styles, returning each season in a variety of new colourways. Based on Austrian army training shoes from the 1970s, the silhouette has become a contemporary classic under Margiela’s influence.
Amongst the various colourways released over the seasons, the ‘Pollock’ is undoubtedly the most stand-out. Recalling the abstract paintings of their namesake, each season a pair of Replicas is adorned with hand-applied paint splashes, transforming each shoe into a mini work of art.
For SS15, it’s not only the Replicas that get the Pollock treatment; you can also pick up a two handy document wallets in the eye-catching pattern.
