Newbark X Roland Mouret
The collaboration sees the seamless mix of two identities coming together, to create a product that is subject to an attitude they both believe in; that there can be practicality in style and femininity. Collaborating with LA-based luxury women's footwear brand, Newbark, Roland Mouret introduces three footwear styles to compliment the Spring Summer 2018 collection.
Stimulated by the work of Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keefe, both inspirational women who deviated from the traditional ideals and chose be honest and raw with their creativity, the collaboration is comprised of Newbark’s 3 core coveted styles. Handcrafted in Los Angeles, California, they have been give the Roland Mouret touch; the Rosa wrap sandal in glossy black lamb skin, the Roma III slip-on sandal in ivory white eel skin and the Melanie loafer in Mouret’s navy and white Mexican Rose Georgette print.
“Roland has been a true friend and confidant to us from the first day we launched Newbark! I recall that day in Paris when I sent him a text message letting him know that we met with Natalie Massenet and the Net-A-Porter team and they are taking Newbark as an exclusive, and he said “Mimi ( his nickname for me) do whatever Natalie asks, it will be good!”. We are now approaching our 10th anniversary since that day and there’s nothing more exciting to collaborate with Roland and share our visions for all the incredible women who appreciate and love both our brands.”
