Brand: Daniel Arsham x Suicoke

Season: Fall/Winter 2021

Buy: Suicoke, Bodega, A Ma Maniere, KITH, SSENSE from August 20 for $250.

Editor's Notes: Suicoke isn't content to merely drop its own expansive FW21 collection; the Japanese brand is collaboration-crazed. With its TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. partnership in the bag, Suicoke is turning its attention to Daniel Arsham, who's opting for something especially cozy for the colder months.

Arsham's practice, for those not in the know, is centered around many sculptural conceits but is perhaps best known for its approach to erosion, reimagining pop culture icons as artifacts dug up from a long-forgotten past. His earthy, worn Mickey Mouse figures and GameBoys possess plenty of nostalgic appeal, making him a worthy analogue for streetwear and luxury brands alike.

Personally, though, I find Arsham's take on artistic uniforms to be the most intriguing component of his craft. It's fascinating to observe the way that artists dress, from Beuys' fisherman vest to Brancusi's tall trousers and Arsham has commodified this much like with his artwork.

Over the years, Arsham has turned out several variations of easy, beige-hued separates, producing atelier outfits for KITH and suits for Poggy and his 2G store, most recently. For his Suicoke collaboration, Arsham opted for a similarly quotidian approach.

Two pairs of ZAVO sandals have been given the Arsham touch, realized with heavyweight stonewashed canvas uppers and sheepskin fur interiors. There's co-branding on the side strap and heel of the Vibram outsole, which has been slimmed down and lengthened for a true house shoe appearance. The result is less clunky than the usual Dansko or Birkenstock clogs worn by artists around their studio but not ostentatiously premium — sandals that can last Arsham's test of time.
