Filling Pieces x Schott NYC
We are excited to reveal our latest collaboration with New York City heritage brand Schott.
Together with their team, we reinterpreted the classic bombardier jacket, of
which a limited run of 77 jackets were produced.
The olive green, shearling lined jacket features FP’s signature Surinamese hand-shake emblem, salmon coloured 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 which were developed over the course of more than 100 years.
From aviation to street culture, the bombardier has demonstrated impressive versatility since its inception in the mid 1900’s. Made with high end materials, expert craftsmanship, innovative functional details, and radiating rich heritage, this jacket is a true manifestation of both Schott’s legacy, and Filling Pieces’ vision of bridging the gap.
A reinterpretation of the classic bombardier jacket
That being said, heritage - both as a concept and what it represents - is different for everyone. For this reason, we worked with a selection of talent in order to create a series of content which reflects their personal interpretation of what the classic bombardier jacket means to them, in the context of their own style and heritage.
