The latest collaborative collection was launched in four styles. These were created in the spirit of the universal mantra that something special and unexpected can happen any day. The collection is both fun and whimsical and features a cast of star characters from the Tokidoki universe.
The two labels made a joint press release where they each spoke in turn about the collaborative collection. Tokidoki co-founder and creative director Simone Legno explains how the collection has helped the Japanese lifestyle brand:
“It has always been my mission to extend the reach of our vision to as many people as possible and what better than on the Skechers canvas. Seeing the collection made with Skechers come to life, it feels like we have always were made for each other.
Skechers President Michael Greenberg also spoke about his vision behind the collaborative capsule:
“Tokidoki’s playfully inspired designs and iconography are a perfect match for our fashion sneaker collections. We work with creative and artistic brands like tokidoki to inspire fashion-forward shoppers looking for opportunities to uniquely express.
All four sneakers in the collaborative collection feature a chunky sneaker silhouette. This reflects the iconic, trendy and hugely popular style. Each shoe is dressed in maximalist patterns and playful colors, perfect for those who need trendy and cute footwear.
