When Vagabond met Jimmie Martin...
Working together with new, upcoming and interesting designers is something that Swedish shoe brand Vagabond is well known for. Their forthcoming collaboration involves the much noted interior design duo Jimmie Martin. Jimmie and Martin's unique style is characterized by a young, contemporary and urban take on classics; a perfect pairing considering Vagabonds similar design aesthetic. The design pair are based in east London, where most of Vagabonds autumn 08 collection was shot.
This winning collaboration has supported and strengthened the autumn campaign, in which urban romance and graffiti played a key element. As Swedes themselves Jimmie and Martin were delighted to have been asked to team up with Vagabond on this venture. Having been approached by Iroquois and Vagabond we felt there was an instant connection between some of our designs and the look and feel that Vagabond was searching for when looking for a collaboration partner.
We hope this is the beginning of a good and successful collaboration venture together with Vagabond. Not to mention that you can never have enough shoes right. This collaboration launches with six bespoke Jimmie Martin chairs and limited edition of canvas bags from their Imperfection series.
The bags will be distributed in store when a pair of Vagabond's are purchased, and the chairs will be found in selected Vagabond stores around Europe from the end of October.
