For the second time this century, the world’s most celebrated ‘Zandra’ and most famous ‘Fluevog’ have joined forces to create a Fall 2023 capsule collection that will stop traffic! Mutual admirers of one another, John and Zandra have been circling each others’ work for years and were both tickled to put their artistic brains together once again.
Leading the charge is Zandra’s iconic ‘Cars’ print, combined with John’s brand new, comfy and complex, Soul Speed sneaker family. Available in two incredible colourways, The Duesy style is the first sneaker ever produced by a Zandra & John combo and is available now. Consider yourself invited to take them for a ride!
The collection continues with headbands, scrunchies, and scarves in loud and fashionable patterns on luxurious mulberry silk. Rounding the collaboration out is a belt bag available in black or pink, purpose built to John and Zandra’s specifications for their various pastimes of painting, drawing, sewing, gardening, and creating. These bags showcase Zandra’s iconic squiggles and come complete with a Wiggle Flower mirror keychain.
“Working with the Fluevog team has been such a fabulous experience. John and I both developed our brands in the ’70s and the stories we have shared with one another from this colourful time have been invaluable to the design process of this collaboration. We have had so much fun working with Fluevog’s brand new styles and shapes — adding a punch of colour and Zandra flair to make these Fluevog pieces stand out even more than they already do!” says Zandra Rhodes
“I love the joy in our Zandra Rhodes collection. There’s an abandonment of ‘norms’ in the collab, which is so fun. Zandra has always had a joy of life in her work, which is something that can go missing in designer work at times. It’s been a great joy for me to be working with
her, my dear friend, knowing that these amazing pieces are always going to be full of life. What’s it like to work with Zandra? It’s as fun as you can imagine.” says John Fluevog
The Fluevog x Zandra Rhodes collection is available at Fluevog stores everywhere and online at Fluevog.com
