Italian premium down jacket brand Duvetica and footwear specialist Santoni are launching a capsule collection, which will become available from f/w 2017/2018.
The new sneaker-concept is characterized by some of the distinctive elements of Duvetica jackets - like nylon, zip fastenings, and innovative technical solutions – produced according to Santoni’s great attention to detail and top quality materials.
The collection offers three two-in-one sneakers for men and women, in black or white Nappa leather with a box sole. They included variants with a nylon padded tongue, a changeable contrasting color heel tab, regular lace-up closure and removable padded nylon inserts. The sneakers will also be available in army and navy colors.
The capsule collection will be sold through the Duvetica distribution network in Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, Middle East, South Korea and Japan, from July 2017 in the Duvetica brand and flagship stores, the duvetica.com online store, and in selected multi-brand stores.
Giuseppe Santoni, CEO, Santoni, stated: “Collaborations are one of the best ways to grow, experiment, and challenge ourselves. This is why I accepted the invitation by Duvetica, an Italian brand I very much admire and that is a leader in its sector. The sneakers we designed together reflect the best of Duvetica’s sports identity interpreted with Santoni’s style.”
Stefano Rovoletto, Duvetica co-founder, commented: “This is our first co-branding project outside our specific sector. We had been planning for some time to include a sneaker collection designed in collaboration with a top level brand, to create a product blending artisanship, contemporary taste, traditions, and materials: this is how we met Santoni, and that has proved to be the ideal partner.”
