Exclusive collaboration in Japan with Birkenstock
A quick introduction of Birkenstock company:
Founded in 1774 by Johann Birkenstock, the family-shoemaking business became renowned in 1896: Konrad Birkenstock (Johann's great-great-grandson) designs the first contoured insole, the first orthopedic shoe & sold to medics. In 1964 Karl Birkenstock released his first athletic sandal with a flexible footbed named Madrid. The BIRKENSTOCK sandals were also very common amid monks, looking for simplicity and comfort.
This medical-focused shoemaker expanded its activities in the 90’s to tap casual consumers and turned its sandal into a staple of German fashion.
The chore values of the two brands, the production in Europe got the two brands to carry out a collaboration in the Japanese market about a sandal branded OrcivalxBirkenstock, design ARIZONA.
This sandal ARIZONA recalls the legendary two-strap sandal, modeled on the cork original. Even if cork is not used anymore, the ARIZONA remains absorbing, waterproof, and skin-friendly, while keeping the full advantages of cork: lightweight and highly flexibility. Just perfect to wear for strolling, shopping, or after workouts with a comfy Orcival striped shirt.
Hardy Amies - The famous English tailor of Savile Row
Few tailors got the privilege to dress the King; Sir Hardy Amies was one of these happy few.
Founded 1946 by Sir Hardy Amies, this house, by virtue of its address as well as its history, is a part of the iconic history of British textiles.
It was the fashion house that contacted the French manufacturer to propose this collaboration. The collaboration consisted in the realization of an exclusive model on which the two brands appear. Embellished with a chest pocket often in contrast with the authentic mariniere, it fits perfectly with the so-british clothes proposed by the London house.
The authentic marinière associated with the Queen's taylor: it was a collaboration that immediately found its customers. The products are still very much in demand on the second hand market.
VÉTRA x CLOSED x ORCIVAL
CLOSED was founded by Marithé et François Girbaud in 1978, two fashion icons who were the first to “stonewash” garments (mostly denim jeans) in order to provide them a special patina. Closed is widely renowned for the x-pocket, and pedal pushers.
In 2018, on a proposal of François Girbaud, a collobaration was decided between CLOSED, Orcival and VETRA, the household name for French workwear and a family-business run by the 4th generation, manufacturing like Orcival 100% in France.
The idea was mixing the savoir-faire to create a line of French Workwear iconic staples and genuine savoir-faire: manufacturing of weaved jackets & pants for VETRA, manufacturing of knitted tops for Orcival, stonewashing for CLOSED.
These limited series are highly sought by connoisseurs of meaningful garments.
