KENZO X PALLADIUM29 October 2019
The collaboration teams up the fashion house, KENZO, with the longstanding shoemaker, PALLADIUM, on the relaunch of a vintage unisex shoe: the PALLADIUM Pallashock by KENZO. As a re-edition, the shoe honors the original collaborations of the two heritage brands under KENZO’s founder Kenzo Takada in the late 80s and early 90s.
The result sees technical cuff boots and shoes in colorful yet practical nylon or quilted nylon with iconic vintage branding on the side, constructed on a low-tech retro hiking rubber shockwave outsole.
Shot by Dutch photography duo Meinke Klein, the KENZO x PALLADIUM Pallashock campaign focuses on the vertiginous perspective on an urban landscape, shot from the point of view from below the streets, as if through a looking glass towards the sky.
With the modern explorer traversing global cities in mind, the campaign features an unexpected myriad of talents and free spirits. From circus performers, Charlotte and Ben, Chantel, a movement artist, to athlete Ocean and skater Connor, the diverse cast showcases an exciting race of adventurers. The shoes are available online and in-store, starting today.
