Marsèll and Suicoke Celebrate Japanese Culture and Italian Craftsmanship With New Sandal Capsule

6 days ago

A slew of collaborative collections are being pumped out from the team at Suicoke this season, and after working with Tom Wood on a jewelry-inspired capsule, it's now tapping European imprint Marsèll for a fresh assemblage of Summer sandals. The new collection is celebratory in every sense as it fuses Japanese culture with Italian craftsmanship, and also releases in time to commemorate Marsèll's 20-year anniversary.

Taking its practices of creating premium leather accessories, Marsèll applies this talent to Suicoke's Depa-like model, and slightly modifies its shape with a thicker, more toothy rubber outsole that's made with recycled materials. “We wanted to challenge ourselves and see what a Suicoke sandal would look like when created with our hands and our distinctive touch", says Marco Cima, Creative Director at Marsèll, when speaking on the collaboration. Five colorways are involved in the project including brighter-toned makeups such as the white, teal and orange as well as muted offerings that are styled in a dark brown and black.

The genderless model will be releasing in a limited run of 1,000 pieces, and will be dropping globally at select retailers like Nordstrom, JUICE, Lane Crawford and more on June 15.

In case you missed it, Suicoke recently partnered up with NEIGHBORHOOD for a bandana-patterned sandal capsule.
