Like the Birkenstock before it, the Teva sandal has been claimed by the fashion pack as one of its own. Several seasons of noted appearances in presentations and catwalk shows – shoutouts to Antipodium and Danielle Romeril – has seen its success move from the stylist’s moodboard to the street.
SS16 then, marks the brand’s third (!) collaboration with Opening Ceremony; creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are obviously hardcore fans, a comfortable situation for any label to find itself in.
Pictured above in a typically striking state – props to Meredith Jens for shooting, Chiazzo’s Terri Chio and Adam Frezza for the set design, and director Benjamin Seroussi’s work on the accompanying film – this season sees the introduction of two new unisex styles: the OC Original Universal Rope and the OC Original Universal Mesh.
While the former taps mountaineering rope as a functional style feature, the latter is mimics Teva’s classic aesthetic with a minimal luxe remake. Elsewhere female socks and sandals fans have much to get hyped about, as SS15’s Flatform Universal makes a comeback in four new colourways.
