Nigel Cabourn works in collaboration with Maison Mihara Yasuhiro on a new shoe collection that marks the third time that the duo is joining forces. The inspiration behind the capsule spotlights one of Cabourn's favorite collaborative pieces and draws design influence from the Swiss army rucksack.
The rucksack was originally launched to be used by the Swiss Army before it was taken over by ex-soldiers and other mountaineers. Notably, it utilizes heavy-duty canvas materials made from blending together cotton yarn materials with stinging nettle fibers. It is finished in a white and black camouflage color palette. Another pair of sneakers is made with a red-clay palette and is inspired by the tan base foundation made from leather with the strap details found on the rucksack.
