Reebok x Eames – Club C Dot Pattern & Composition Pack

The details are not the details.
They make the design.

– charles eames

Reebok has embraced two seemingly contradictory Eames edicts of ceaseless improvement and innovation as a last resort by reengineering the Club C to make it as faithful to the original 1985 release as possible while including improvements in materials and process. Honoring Charles and Ray’s belief that details make the design, heritage accents have been combined with Eames iconic paintings, textiles and accents creating accessible designs that will stand the test of time.

Club C Dot Pattern

Awashed with the Dot Pattern textile print that was considered but not submitted by the Eames Office to MoMA’s 1947 Competition for Printed Fabrics. A field of dots are joined by tiny sinews that bring order and proportion to a randomly scattered field. Dot Pattern expresses the interconnectedness of Eames design. Though all the work the Eames’ did in their staggeringly productive lifetimes was their joint achievement and vision, the image of Ray holding the final drawing still dazzles. The iconic print is deftly softened by a natural upper that rests on an unassuming raw rubber sole.

Club C Composition

Based on her Composition painting of 1939 – the year before she met Charles at Cranbrook. Exhibiting the eye for abstraction that Ray honed under the tutelage of German émigré master Hans Hoffman, composition’s subtle natural tones envelop an upper that floats atop a crisp white midsole. Ray’s handwritten signature enhances her personal connection to this collectible sneaker.

The Eames x Reebok ‘Composition & Dot Pattern’ Pack drops Friday 18 March.
