Specified Fiction's "Reflection" x Solepack GRF
Specified Fiction's "Reflection" x Solepack
A powerful collaboration between Miami based artist, Specified Fiction (Jonathan Desrosiers), and Solepack. The work continues the celebration of Black History & the continued fight for equality. Our originally designed GRF shoe storing string bag serves as a unique canvas for Jonathan's creative work. A limited run collection.
Through the Artist's eyes:
As an artist, I was influenced to create this design by pillars of moments and symbols in history.
The intent was to showcase moments during the Civil Rights movement.
There are two sides to this design:
On the back of the bag:
I wanted to signify the progression from the civil rights movement and landmarks that shaped the future for young black men and women.
On the front of the bag:
I highlighted various articles and momentous icons that empowered to shift the racial divide. I wanted to show how far we already came and were we are heading in the future.
Historical events are a direct reflection of present days climate. This bag represents progression, while still reflecting.

Truly humbled to create these important pieces with Jonathan and continue the work of having our bags serve as moving canvases of expression-especially for voices that weren't highlighted in the past..that were silenced.
