VEJA and MARNI unveil the second release of their collaborative collection, the VEJA x MARNI sneakers, presenting three styles infused with new colorways in both men’s and women’s sizes, will be available at all MARNI boutiques in Hong Kong starting from 20 October 2022.
The V-10 and the high-top V-15 white leather sneakers are underscored by a colorful scribbled motif that covers the upper shoe, recalling instinctive drawings from school. At the intersection of craftsmanship and industrial work, each pair has been assembled by hand, with the right foot different from the left to further underline the sense of originality characterizing the design. Made in Brazil, the sneakers were crafted with bovine leather that comes from farms in Uruguay and is then tanned in Brazil in a Gold certified tannery by the Leather Working Group. It is tanned without using any hazardous or prohibited chemicals. VEJA uses conventional dyes that comply with regulations. Special attention is paid to water usage during the tanning process.
Known for its thoughtful yet playful approach, MARNI is a luxury brand recognized for its offbeat take on fashion, and the collaboration with VEJA exemplifies the commitment of the brand to celebrate individuality through a creativity that is personal and connective at once.
