The project is under the creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli, creative director of Maison Valentino, who had this to say about the collab:
“I chose to make this collaboration with Birkenstock for the same reason people choose Birkenstock every day. No matter what you wear, who you are, no matter your gender or social background, no matter your age, your style, no matter if you care about fashion or if you do not, Birkenstock has its own universal language. I loved the idea of approaching the DNA of our Maison, represented by the individual and intimate world of Couture with something that it is so free and adaptable. To me, this is the definition of inclusivity.”
Valentino’s Birkenstock effort features two colorways of the Arizona. The black iteration boasts Valentino’s VLTN logo on the side, while the red rendition is a tonal affair.
