Fonzworth Bently and stylist Mike B were amongst the 100 industry insiders that hosted an intimate lunch for “Metamorphism” by Alexander John and Jeff Staples. The most coveted items from the collection included the hand painted, ghost marble Adidas NMD’s; in which only 15 pair were made available at $450.00. Before the night was over they were on eBay valuing at nearly $1000.00.

This is the shoe! I love it!

In a little more than six weeks “Metamorphism” occurred in the design world between “The Master” (Jeff Staple), and “The Student” (Alexander-John), resulting in the launch of the Craft Syndicate’s inaugural incubator capsule collection inspired by the physical act of marbling.
The brain trust of Dutch Masters, Jeff, in the position of mentor, chose Alexander-John out of a thousand submission to collaborate with as his pupil. The two self-described nerds, exchanged ideas, and Jeff, during the launch of the 10-piece collection at the exclusive pop-up shop located on New York City’s Lower East Side kicks hot-spot Extra Butter, stated that he learned as much from Alexander-John as he imparted. And, that he loved the fact that Alexander-John actively pushed back when he had a different perspective, standing strong to his convictions.
