Philippe Model presents the new sneakers in a limited edition produced in collaboration with the Dutch illustrator and artist Gino Hoiting. The GINO HOITING X PHILIPPE MODEL sneakers keep the clean and linear design of the Gare model reinterpreted with an all-over floral print and the iconic hummingbird of the fashion house which the artist has designed with his unmistakable line in black and white. “I was inspired by the birds of the Tropical Birds line, in particular the hummingbird and the rest came by itself,“ says Gino Hoiting. Gino Bud Hoiting, born in 1984 in Utrecht, where he also grew up, is a Dutch illustrator. In 2009 he founded his studio which works on illustration projects for webzines, magazines, books, posters and collaborations with various brands. The artist also exhibits drawings, animations and installations nationally and internationally. His style is recongizable by an analogue and digitally elabroated approach. He draws with pen on paper, creating a clear and tangible image.
