Amsterdam-based fashion brand Filling Pieces has launched its latest collaboration with New York City heritage brand Schott. Together, the two brands have released an updated take on the classic bombardier jacket, of which a limited run of 77 jackets were produced.
The olive green, the shearling-lined jacket features Filling Pieces’ signature Surinamese hand-shake emblem, salmon-colored leather straps, subtle logo embroidery on the pocket, and has been crafted by Schott’s master tailors using leather hides that have been exclusively tanned for the brand using specifications that were developed over the course of more than 100 years.
“As a young ready-to-wear house, this project represents a major milestone on our brand journey,” said Guillaume Philibert, founder and creative director of Filling Pieces. “The rich history and heritage of Schott has inspired us to develop a truly timeless outerwear piece together, representing the values and histories of both brands.”
As an extension of the collaboration, Filling Pieces will host Schott in its Amsterdam Flagship store’s pop-up space, which will be transformed into an immersive retail experience inspired by American aviation and JFK airport. Opening on November 11th, the pop-up experience will feature the collaboration pieces, as well as an exclusive curation of Schott’s signature items.
