IWC Schaffhausen launches a collaboration with Dutch streetwear-inspired luxury label Filling Pieces. Over the next three weeks, their flagship store in Amsterdam will be dressed in the colors inspired by IWC’s new green ceramic hue “Woodland.” To celebrate the partnership, Filling Pieces Founder and Creative Director Guillaume Philibert has conceived the “Low Top Ghost Woodland,” a limited-edition sneaker featuring design and color codes derived from the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Woodland.”
Both, IWC Schaffhausen and Filling Pieces share passion for craftsmanship, design, creation and color. As part of the partnership, the brands will curate distinctive exhibitions. Among the highlights will be panel discussions on various topics related to fashion, metaverse, NFTs and design or watchmaking master classes.
In addition, Guillaume Philibert has designed a limited edition sneaker to celebrate the collaboration. The “Low Top Ghost Woodland” is based on the famous “Low Top”, Filling Piece’s original and iconic silhouette. Its aesthetic details and color codes draw inspiration from IWC’s Pilot’s Watch TOP GUN Chronograph Edition “Woodland,” the first timepiece in newly engineered green ceramic. Featuring the distinct “Woodland” color specified by PANTONE®, other details include a premium perforated nubuck leather upper, stitched Filling Pieces logo and the typical ghost outsole with lasered “X” design cue inspired by the watch strap. Only 100 pairs in sizes ranging from 39 to 46 will be available. Customers who purchase a “Low Top Ghost Woodland” will also receive an NFT that introduces owners to the “IWC Diamond Hand Club,” IWC’s exclusive tokenised community in the web3.
The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Edition “Woodland” was launched as a part of IWC’s “The Colors of TOP GUN” collection at Watches and Wonders 2022 in Geneva. It is the first IWC timepiece in newly engineered green ceramic. The ceramic case and the dial come in the shade of green while the numerals and hour markers are printed in a lighter hue. Colored ceramics are created in a complex manufacturing process, in which zirconium oxide is mixed with other metallic oxides and then sintered at high temperatures in a kiln. The pushers and case back are made of matte black Ceratanium®. Developed by IWC, this material is as light and robust as titanium and almost as hard and scratch-resistant as ceramic. The timepiece is powered by the IWC-manufactured 69380 calibre, a robust and reliable chronograph with a column-wheel design.
