Jacob Gray sneak preview

Today Amsterdam Fashion TV had a sneak preview of Jacob Gray’s new sneakers collection.

Jacob Gray is the offspring of Giovanni Laisina and Mitchell Gray. The Dutch designers duo, after years of experience as stylists for fashion magazines and TV programmes, decided to create the label and started sketching at the end of 2012. Finally the moment has come for them to present the results of their hard work, which will be retailed countrywide from next October.

Mounira Mansour met the designers, who unveiled their collection of high top sneakers.

The designers made the collection aiming at the under 25, the sneakers’ clean lines make them perfect for everyday life. They are made using materials like suede and leather, in a neutral colour palette.
