Alongside the resurgence of suede and the reappearance of the camp-collar shirt, one of the most familiar sights over the past year has been the unmistakable all-white outline of the Common Projects Original Achilles Low Sneaker. But rather than a resurrection, the stripped back sneaker represents more of a cult – with its popularity born out of exquisite design and extreme comfort. Alongside the classic open camp-collar, its fair to say everyone now owns a pair of classic Common Projects. But this week’s latest arrivals illustrates that there is more to the contemporary sneaker brand than the iconic White Achilles Low. There are now other, even more elegant, ways to enjoy Common Projects with the introduction of the brand’s selection of luxury leather accessories. Below is a closer look at our favourites from the new drop – just in case you needed an excuse to expand your coveted Common Projects collection.
As you would expect, the Common Projects collection of luxury, minimalist goods incorporates the brand’s distinctive aesthetic – most noticeably through precise handcrafted construction and signature gold stamp branding. This Bi-Fold Wallet represents the most versatile design in the collection courtesy of its tan leather interior that features six card holder slots, two handy pockets for tickets and receipts as well as a single note holder.
Expertly made in Italy from a beautifully textured leather, the single slot card holder is the perfect compact accessory to support your daily movements. The tonal white design not only reflects the brand’s iconic sneaker, but it also represents the change in tact from typical black leather goods to new sophisticated colour hues – seemingly in white, grey and tan shades.
Suitable for everyday, the zipper wallet slips easily into the pocket and features multiple card and cash slots to keep all essentials close by. Finished with fine Italian craftsmanship that includes the black textured leather body, the durable full zip closure and the discreet god embossed branding.
