J.M. Weston x Roland Garros 2020
THE JM WESTON x ROLAND-GARROS COLLECTION
No need to change a winning duo! For the fourth year in a row, J.M. Weston is inspired by clay tennis courts and unveils a new collaboration with the Roland-Garros label.
The result: a Moc 'dressed in navy nubuck with Blake stitching, perched on a vegetable-tanned leather sole from the Bastin tannery, in which rubber details are inserted, for added resistance and grip. This exclusive model, made at the Limoges factory, has its signature strap adorned with a subtle detail, reminiscent of the orange colour of the clay of the legendary stadium.
In addition to this signature model, the collection is expanding with a unisex “On Time” sneaker in micro-perforated white smooth calfskin, the texture of which is reminiscent of the grip of the racquet sleeves… Along the lacing, a fine line navy blue underlines the model's lines while the ocher-coloured buttress recalls the clay courts of Roland-Garros. The ultimate signature common to the two shoe models in this collaboration, the clay-coloured sockliner inserts are adorned with geometric lines from a tennis court and signed with the two J.M. Weston and Roland-Garros logos.
Game, set and match: two accessories complete this unique collection. A half-rush belt in navy box calfskin lined with orange clay calfskin, reveals a seagull-shaped cutout on the first loop, recalling the shape of the strap of the iconic 180 moccasin. he bee is also designed to be slipped into sneakers. They complete this look with a double band inspired by competition cuffs.
