Teva and Christian Cowan release summer capsule
Deckers-owned brand Teva revealed on Tuesday a glittery capsule collection in collaboration with British born, New York based designer, Christian Cowan.
The limited-edition two-piece capsule includes a newly designed Hurricane Gladiator featuring an ultra-strappy gladiator upper in Cowan's signature fluorescent pink. The design embraces earth-friendly materials including Teva's recycled polyester straps using traceable, verifiable Repreve recycled plastic and polyester yarn by Unifi.
Rounding out the collection is the Hurricane XLT2 sandal offered in silver and pink. It features iridescent webbing and connector straps embellished in environmentally-friendly plant-based glitter and comes complete with a rugged Durabrasion Rubber outsole.
"As a brand committed to being your guide for adventure in the modern world, it is important to us to identify and partner with brands that share the same Teva vision," said Teva GM and VP, Anders Bergstrom.
"Through our collaboration with Christian Cowan, we were able to blend the world of fashion and the modern outdoors. Christian's optimistic, fun, and adventurous signature style was something we wanted to capture with this collection and for our community to celebrate the free spiritedness and boldness that this collection represents.”
A graduate from Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion in 2016, Cowan garnered a strong celebrity following even before graduation. With Lady Gaga as one of his first supporters as a young deisgner, he has gone on to outfit the likes of Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and Naomi Campbell. He regularly shows during New York Fashion Week and was a finalist for the 2018 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
"As a designer most known for designing party dresses, I am so excited to bring the party to the sandal world through this collection with Teva", added Cowan.
"This collaboration is fun, free-spirited and functional, and blends both our worlds together harmoniously. I loved working with existing Teva silhouettes and dialing up the sparkle, a testament to Teva's free-spirited nature, and hope both existing and new fans of both brands will enjoy wearing them as much as I enjoyed designing them with Teva."
