LINE FRIENDS has had a long list of must-cop collaborations, including a skincare collection with innisfree, a T-shirt series with Uniqlo and even its own Xiaomi smartphone partnership. Now, the animal characters are teaming up with French shoe company, Repetto.
The collaboration features Repetto’s iconic Cendrillon ballet flat-style shoe. In case you didn’t know, the Paris-based maison was founded by Rose Repetto who created her first ballet shoe in a tiny workshop near the National Opera of Paris in 1947. The Cendrillon silhouette honors the dance heritage of the brand and is created with a 15-step process using the stitch-and-return technique. Designed with premium patent leather, the shoes feature LINE FRIENDS’ Choco the bear illustrations in tonal nude brown. The flats are finished with a glossy sheen and a bow on top with a small silver Choco charm attached. Scroll through the gallery above to get a closer look.
400 pairs of the LINE FRIENDs x Repetto “Choco Limited Edition” Cendrillon will release on September 9 globally. The collaboration will be available in-stores at LINE FRIENDS locations in Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong, and on LINE FRIENDS’ online stores in Korea, Japan and China. You can also find the shoes in select Repetto retail stores in France, Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
