Designer Darlings: Kofi Von Ohene’s Margiela Sneakers

Together with the upcoming photographer Ines Vansteenkiste-Muylle, we collaborated on our new series ‘Designer Darlings‘. In the past three weeks, actress Veerle Dejaeger, fashion blogger Matthias Geerts and PR-lady Shanice Engel already presented their favorite designer item. Today, we’re introducing Kofi Von Ohene and his designer darling.

Kofi Von Ohene is an enfant terrible pur sang. The visual artist and fashion designer rose to fame in 2016 when his designs became a hype in the streetwear community and made him a designer many added to their ‘most wanted’ list.

Maison Margiela Velvet Replica Sneakers

As a young creative with a great sense of fashion, it wasn’t a surprise Kofi’s fit was perfectly tuned with his black Maison Margiela Velvet Replica sneakers. He had been looking for the shoes for a long time and bought the Replica sneakers in a regular version before he found the velvet ones.

After looking for the shoes in Facebook groups and on websites, he almost gave up, but a friend of his made a good deal. Kofi ended up trading his stuff for the shoes he’d been searching for for months. Even his mother, who isn’t always a fan of his clothes, likes the shoes and we do too. The sneaker can be combined with almost everything. “I can wear the shoes under nice sweatpants or casual suit pants,” Kofi says and we agree. The Margiela sneakers are always a nice addition to an outfit and spice every fit up.
