This is for the Women

In the beginning of 2019 I was asked by Fila to work on one of their retro models: the Fila Adrenaline for an “International Womens Day” special. My story behind this sneaker is the blooming of women through using cherry blossoms as a symbol, that’s how I look at every woman. Blooming in a certain period of their life and in their very own way. Women are beautiful creatures, we all thrive in our own way and stand firmly in our shoes. Through our flourishing, the world continues to grow.

I’d created over twenty colorways and all of them were inspired by several ways of how I see women bloom. Some were very mature and some were super bubbly so we decided to combine both matters in one.

A few meetings and color changes later we’ve decided on one colorway with a lowkey and subtle flower print. Now the materials had to be in line too. Sporty but feminine.


I have to say, now that I’m pregnant, I feel like I’m blooming too and so far I’m very proud of myself and all other women. We are such strong human beings and capable of so much more! I’ve been through so much in the past, that this story of blooming always keeps me up, running and following my dreams.

A new CAREAUX special for FILA was born in May 2019 and I can’t wait to share this special baby with you on the 8th of March “International Womens Day”.

We would like to invite you for the official release party on the 8th of March at the Food Department (top floor of Magna Plaza in Amsterdam). Join us for some food, drinks and beats by Yung Winky 3PM still 6PM!
