There is no denying Hiroshi Fujiwara’s importance in the world of streetwear. Considered one of the founding fathers of Japanese streetwear, the designer has inspired generations both aesthetically and creatively. In 2014, his fragment design label was given the chance to create an Air Jordan 1. Since then, Fujiwara’s name has become synonymous with Jordan Brand. With that in mind, Fujiwara has revealed another sample from his collection.
Although there is not much detail other than an image, Hiroshi Fujiwara looks to be sharing a lot from his personal archive. Just two weeks ago the designer unveiled a fragment design x Air Jordan 3. This model, however, has never been seen before.
For the most part, the sneaker looks to reference the Jordan Delta; a low-top running silhouette. Using a very simple colour scheme, the sneaker combines shades of grey throughout the upper. However, the use of new premium materials such as suede and mesh add something special to it. Also noticeable is an Air Unit sole, a detail that is not found on other Jordan Delta models. Simple fragment design branding can be seen on the heel, with a Jordan tag hanging from the grey suede.
With this being a sample, it’s likely that the sneaker will never release. As we now know, Fujiwara was in competition with Virgil Abloh on “The Ten.” Perhaps this is one model that was supposed to make up the collection. For now, though, we’ll just have to wait for more news to emerge. Check out the image below and let us know if you’d cop these fragment design x Jordans.
