In 2004, the designers Flavio Girolami and Prathan Poopat established the luxury footwear Common Projects and welcomed sneaker lovers with their simplistic styles and unique footwear. While the brand is based in New York City its production is taking place in the March region of Italy. The collections are made of Italian Nappa leather and remain hand-stitched, including gold foil details along the heel, showing the style, the color and the size. With their sleek and minimal aesthetic pieces, the trainers are now a cult-favorite and a must-have for everyone’s sneaker assortment. Today the label has expanded, and premium wallets and bags are now available for purchase.
