Études x Adieu FW19 Collaboration

Études x Adieu

Études x Adieu Fall is about to arrive, and so is our newest collaboration—please welcome: Études x Adieu. Ever since its inception in 2012, the Parisian shoe brand Adieu has set itself apart from conventional approaches to contemporary design by continuously embracing artistic intentions that came along with the 50s up until the late 70s.

Adieu’s distinctive mixture between a Londonesque-underground feel and French gentility create dynamic compositions of footwear, lastingly making it into our memory with its abiding hybridity.

As Adieu meets Études—and boundaries blur even further—a collaboration of contemporaneity and tradition is called into existence. Featuring 4 pairs in total (2 designs, 2 colors), this joint undertaking especially wants to remind us of the suave allure that comes with youthful sophistication. The prospective models of these shoes—a derby and a 8-hole boot (available in army green and black)—are made with leather and carry the brands’ logos in silver print.

The outcome is proof of the visual voyage that is design and its history, subtly offering that type of coolness that doesn’t need to give explanations outside of itself. Instead, it all just sort of is.
