VAGABOND ATELIER MEN’S COLLECTION 2018
Vagabond Shoemakers is celebrating their heritage and presents the Atelier Men’s Collection 2018, with inspiration drawn from the own archives and curated by Christopher Bastin. The message if fronted by artist Kindness, who set the tone by his visionary work on the music scene.
In the beginning of the nineties Vagabond evolved into a true unisex brand, with equal love for a wide number of different styles for both men and women. But before that it was all about men’s shoes – men’s fashion expressed through carefully designed lasts, uppers and outsoles.
“Since our gathered expertise in shoes derived from the making of men’s shoes, we think it is time to celebrate that, and how it’s a part of our story and future” – Marie Nilsson Peterzén, Creative Director and founder of Vagabond.
For the Atelier Men’s Collection 2018, Christopher Bastin is the honored source of inspiration. With a great eye for details and a sure instinct of style, his ideas have been infused into the design and prototype team, finding a well discovered and updated version of the Vagabond Men’s Collection 2018.
“Simplicity and the focus on material has been very important, as well as lifting the classic iconic Vagabond-styles. To be able to take part of the knowledge and the genuine craftmanship that is necessary was incredibly educational. And to think that all this is existing in Vagabond’s design studio on the Swedish west coast isn’t just unique, but also something that Vagabond should be really proud of!” – Christopher Bastin says.
The Atelier Men’s Collection consists of 21 pieces of boots, shoes and accessories and will be available in selected Vagabond stores, retailers and on vagabond.com from September the 26th. Vagabond Atelier is an incubator unit and a creative laboratory for new products with a purpose to drive new ideas and innovative projects based on design, innovation, sustainability and collaboration. It gathers knowledge and invites new and outside perspectives.
