Roland Mouret has partnered up with LA-based luxury footwear brand Newbark on a three-style capsule collection.
The capsule revolves around a wrap sandal in black nappa leather, a slip-on sandal in ivory eel leather, and a loafer in Mouret's SS18 navy and white Mexican Rose Georgette print, inspired by artists Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe.
Speaking of the collection In a statement, Mouret said, “I feel it’s very relevant for women today and what they need in their life," stating that the collaboration allowed both brands to "explore and merge our creative talents and energies, creating a product that has a certain uniqueness that we couldn’t have crafted by ourselves."
On his website, Mouret further explained that he has "always admired" Newbark co-founders, stylists and sisters Maryam and Marjan Malakpour, as well as "the identity behind their company; practical accessories with a strong edge."
"Roland has been a true friend and confidant to us from the first day we launched Newbark" said Maryam and Marjan Malakpour, citing advice the designer gave the sisters on their exclusive Net-A-Porter launch.
They added, "We are now approaching our 10th anniversary and there’s nothing more exciting than to collaborate with Roland and share our visions for all the incredible women who appreciate and love both our brands.”
The collection launches today with a limited run of 195 pairs of shoes available exclusively at Roland Mouret flagships in NY and London, and online. Prices start from $395 for the Roma III slip-on sandal.
