Editor’s Notes: Danish fashion label Ganni has teamed up with Italian artisanal footwear brand Diemme on a pair of high-quality performance sneakers and hiking boots for women. The footwear was first seen on Ganni’s FW18 runway and has been available to purchase since the beginning of August.
Diemme was founded by brothers Dennis and Maico Signor and is known for its handcrafted performance footwear for brands such as Margiela, Chanel, and Bottega Veneta. The Ganni x Diemme partnership seeks to “create the ultimate urban expression of utility footwear.” The results of this collaboration, the Sarai boot and Iris sneaker, come with Vibram soles and in white and hazelnut colorways.
“Ganni brought a fresh and modern twist to these amazing traditional pieces," says Ganni creative director Ditte Reffstrup. "I love that we used the old brand slogan from Diemme on the shoes' soles, ‘Life is now.’ It rings more true now than ever.”
Diemme's Dennis Signor added, “When the opportunity to work with Ganni was presented, we were utterly flattered and excited. We admire Ganni for their vibrant take on fashion and army of cool girls. It’s been really fun to dig out classic Diemme styles and rework them with Ditte to become modern takes on our heritage."
