Everyone was an artist at some point. While our strengths evolve beyond childhood, the power of creativity as one of our first natural instincts remains unrivaled.
As fine artists continue to influence the fashion world, we see an opportunity to position the collaboration as a cycle of preservation, leveraging established artists to help inspire the pursuits of future artists. Our aim is to champion creativity as a staple of learning and personal growth for generations to come.
Within Limits is our partner series established alongside museums and established artists. Our first edition features Vincent Valdez, whose work has been exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Parsons School of Design Paris, OSDE Buenos Aires and The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. An adaptation from the Vincent Valdez painting, Till Then (2015), paired with an original shoe design, is limited to 499 pairs. They’re currently featured at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
The Standards represent our take on the classic slide, designed with unique colourways and a softer, lighter feel for improved wearability. The entire line features cushioned leather insoles and leather heel tabs. We have 8 SKUs for Spring/Summer 2019, available in limited quantities. A portion of proceeds from The Standards will benefit MINDPOP, an Austin-based arts organization that ensures children of all backgrounds receive an arts-rich education.
