Reebok x Cottweiler SS18 Accessories

This past weekend, the latest collaboration I was a part of debuted at London Fashion week. We teamed up for a second season with menswear label Cottweiler, this time to create a collection inspired by Marathon Des Sables, a desert marathon regarded as being the toughest footrace in the world.

The entire collection included apparel, footwear and accessories designed with this extreme environment in mind.

For my part, I worked on:

  • a lightweight cap with a protective, detachable neck cover
  • a hydration waist belt
  • and a lightweight hydration vest/backpack hybrid

If the Hydration Vest looks a little familiar, it's because it was based on the hydration solution for runners I designed for Reebok previously, the Spartan Hybrid. We were able to build upon the particular research, knowledge, and solutions created for the extreme obstacle course race environment and adapt fabrics and details to suit the demanding atmosphere of Des Sables. 

The runway show included both the Reebok collaboration and the Cottweiler SS18 collection, both of which were met with great reviews. 

Arguably the focal point of the show, though, was the latest in Cottweiler’s ongoing collaboration with Reebok, which first debuted at Pitti Uomo earlier this year. This joint effort took inspiration from sports after care, and so tied in with Reebok’s ideals of combining the mental, social and physical.
