Passport collection - inspired by beaches of Australia
I have shortly wrote about the Passport collection earlier. The collection includes 4 different sneaker models and 4 different models of other footwear. According to Christian the vision behind collection is that each handcrafted pair of shoes can translate seamlessly into any environment. The idea of the collection is to create a versatile selection that would work no matter what you wear.
In terms of inspiration and background the collection is based on colors and shapes of the surf beaches of Australia. Specifically Byron Bay and Lorne. Therefore the look book is created to show the colors and patterns directly in the environment in which they were inspired by. As Christian tells himself every pair has a story. And every detail has a purpose. Therefore designs have a soul beyond the quality and construction. They were created with inspiration and meaning.
The sneakers are all crafted in Italy near Florence in the heart of Tuscany. Sneakers are made by using Italian leathers and suede, all of which are hand-cut. All the sneakers also have 100% calf leather lining throughout and structural padding to maintain their shape over time. According to Christian this makes them also feel incredible. In addition the sneakers have athletic technical insoles to ensure lasting comfort.
