Salehe Bembury Reveals First Look at Moncler Collaboration
Last month, Salehe Bembury sat down for an interview and explained why he chose not to work with Nike, also mentioning that partnering with New Balance was the right path for him to head down. In addition, it was also stated that Bembury was working with luxury fashion label Moncler on a project due to release in 2023.
The collaboration is a sign that Moncler are continuing their foray into the world of sneakers, as the brand already have a number of creations with key brands under their belt, including link-ups with Kith x ASICS and Converse. Several things can be deduced from this first look shared on Instagram, including branding and colour palette. The design appears to be inspired by the ruggedness of the outdoors – a common theme in much of Bembury's work. A badge that marks the colab can be found slapped on the tongue tabs, with thick laces adding GORPcore vibes.,
