Birkenstocks x Toogood: The Brands Team Up On Workwear
The collab even comes with a custom bed for maximum comfort.
Birkenstock, a hallmark of functional fashion, are working with British designer Faye Toogood to launch a range of workwear, sandals and even a custom-made bed.
The shoes themselves are reworkings of Birkenstock’s classic unisex designs, including the Forager, Mudlark and Beachcomber.Posited as a celebration of Toogood and Birkenstock's 'shared values', the shoes are said to be 'inspired by ancient artefacts unearthed for collection and display'. Like historic works of art, this collab clearly aims to be timeless.
The materials used include canvas, felt and suede. Practical and minimalist in form, the shoes and clothes mostly come in shades of white, black and grey. But, if you are looking to branch out, you might find yourself drawn to the bold yellow pair.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the collab comes in the form of a custom made bed built with a cork frame. The bed, which is designed to apply ‘Birkenstock’s health promoting principles’ to furniture, comes with a natural mattress.
You can check out the whole collection - and grab a couple items before they sell out completely - on Toogood's website.
