The intricately layered techniques and socially conscious and autobiographical themes of Bryant Giles have earned the Los Angeles-based artist and designer international acclaim in both the fashion and art worlds. With an individualized take on the 2002R, Giles draws on a particularly unique source of inspiration, his own pair of customized, classic grey 992s. The 2002R reinterprets the hand-drawn alterations made to the 992 as embroidered, original artwork. These graphics are set against a backdrop of a neutral toned, canvas and suede accented upper, for a holistic feeling spin on the silhouette’s high-tech heritage. Original illustrations also feature on the shoe’s sockliner, and on customized packaging, with multiple lace options and a removable hook and loop ‘N’ logo capturing the energy of the in-studio creative process, down to the last detail.
