CELEBRATE SUMMER WITH ‘LES PIEDS DANS L’EAU’ SOCKS
Look Mate London’s new collaboration is the perfect antidote for any dreary day or post holiday blues. Les pieds dans l’eau, which translates as ‘the feet in the water’ is Look Mate’s latest playful pair of socks launching this month. Celebrate the summer with this striking design which Look Mate have been developing with ultra talented illustrator and designer Marylou Faure.
Marylou lives in London and works as an art director and freelance designer. She specialises in character design and hand written typography. Her work is characterized by its bold, quirky style and use of a bright, vibrant colour palette.
Marylou likes to represent everyday life, people and situations in a fun and sometimes provocative way, as a means to make people smile and to brighten up their day – the perfect synergy with Look Mate’s own philosophy to offer “Exquisite socks designed collaboratively”. Brands who have commissioned her highly original designs include Google, Easyjet, Deliveroo and Facebook to name but a few.
The inspiration behind the new design is to evoke the feeling of escaping to tropical climates, sipping on cocktails and diving into refreshing water. Living in the UK, sunshine is never guaranteed but these socks will brighten even the most overcast day.
Every pair of Look Mate socks are produced to high standards of craftsmanship from combed cotton by second generation sock makers in Armenia where the socks are tested time and time again until perfection is reached. To view and purchase the les pieds dans l’eau socks, shop online at Look Mate’s e-commerce store at www.lookmate.co. Each pair of is priced £12. Look Mate also offer a one month, a three month or a six month subscription service for customers to receive a pair of socks from Look Mate’s latest designs.
