VFILES and FILA link up to release an exclusive collection of footwear and apparel for men and women. Pulling inspiration from tennis, the range provides a fresh set of styles taking familiar elements from both brands. The latest project is one of the first through Greenhouse, Foot Locker’s new incubator developed for limited-edition capsules.

vfilesEstablished in 2012, VFILES is a social platform for tastemakers covering a vault of fashion media, original programing, and an online and in-person retail enterprise of hand-selected products.

"At VFILES we believe in three global languages: Fashion, Music and Sport,” said Julie Anne Quay, Founder & CEO of VFILES. "All three worlds connect in our collaboration with the FILA team, our two brands coming together to push creative boundaries, on and off the court.”

vfilesvfilesvfiles-complexcomplex original"To align with a brand like VFILES and to be among the inaugural programs for Greenhouse was an exciting opportunity for us,” said Louis W. Colon III, Vice President of Heritage & Trend, FILA North America. "VFILES' forward-thinking approach has been a game-changer in the fashion and digital space. This partnership allows us connect with the VFILES community and tell a FILA story. As tennis continues to drive trends in streetwear and style, the capsule offers a modern nod to our rich heritage in the sport."

Classic FILA designs and silhouettes feature a color-loud palette capturing VFILES vibes. Sports and style enthusiasts will find interlocking tennis ball graphics, 90s-like color blocking, and a variety of VFILES and FILA logo treatments adorning the apparel.

One version of the sneaker features a lime green colorway and is crafted in a fabric that mimics a tennis ball. Three additional styles are uniquely dipped in bright pink, yellow and blue hues to complement the apparel. Each pair has a dual-branded logo on the tongue, designed to look like a court, and an embroidered VFILES logo on the heel. For a custom finish, sock liners are accented with a graphic pattern and the interlocking tennis ball motif.
