A shoe that reflects the fusion of Japanese culture and Italian craftsmanship: this is the idea behind the collaboration between Marsèll and Japanese footwear brand Suicoke. Through a process that involved respecting, reusing, transforming, and enhancing what was already there, Marsèll managed to produce an entirely leather sandal mounted onto a serrated rubber sole—entirely made from recycled materials—with a square toe. Marsèll and Suicoke are united in their drive to create everyday footwear for creative environments, with a focus on a signature style that has redefined the boundaries of contemporary aesthetics in the last decade. The collection is released in a limited run of 1,000 pieces. Available in five different colours, the genderless model is distributed through a network of selected retailers worldwide.
SUICOKE is a cult Japanese brand founded in 2006. It began its business in a peculiar way, producing small accessories and hand-painted Russian dolls before the transition into footwear. From a niche market in Japan, the label has gradually gained international praise thanks to multiple collaborations and an ever-evolving style profile. Their fresh, geometrically inspired sandals spread a sense of creative freedom that refuses to be constrained by genre.
