Birkenstock works in collaboration with Marie-Louise Sciò, the CEO, Creative Director, and hospitality consultant of Pellicano Hotels Group. This collaboration came into fruition because Sciò has a strong appreciation for Birkenstock's work and its high-quality construction.
The timeless designs of the sandals also stood out to Marie-Louise Sciò, stating that “Birkenstock for me is a way of thinking, similar to mine and to our hotels. Less is more. It’s not about trends and seasons it’s about timeless quality.” The joint sandals are rooted in understated designs and draw inspiration from the elegant aesthetics of Hotel II Pellicano. The capsule features the inaugural Natural Raffia Arizona sandals, which boast engraved accents on leather. The sandals arrive in colorways including navy suede, navy leather, navy EVA, black satin silk, or bright red.
