The University of NAKED Copenhagen Is for Girls Who Love Sneakers

The footwear retailer’s latest editorial sheds light on access to education and the difficulties that girls around the world face.

Following up to the fitness-inspired editorial showcasing its collaborative adidas Consortium Response CL silhouette, Copenhagen-based sneaker retailer NAKED now returns with a collegiate take on the Nike Dunk High SP “Varsity Purple.” Dubbed the “University of NAKED Copenhagen,” the latest editorial highlights the violet release and is modelled by friends of the brand. They share their personal experiences and also discuss how they can support those who encounter barriers to education. With Sally Javadi, Nathalie Wiltoft and Salwa Ali having all grown up in Denmark, NAKED asks them how they got to where they are today, being able to pursue their creative and academic dreams without restrictions.

In getting to know their paths to success, it is inspiring to learn about these strong women and their sense of self-belief and perseverance. At the same time, the conversations shed light on the stark reality that for many, this course of education is not possible. Whether affected by poverty, war, gender discrimination or many other obstacles, some girls may never be able to reach their full potential. Teaming up with non-profit organization, Malala Fund – which is “working for a world where every girl can learn and lead” – investments are made to support education activists and advocates alike who push forward in creating solutions for girls and the educational barriers that they must face. To help transform communities around the globe, NAKED will be pledging $5,000 USD to Malala Fund.

Take a closer look at the editorial in the gallery above, where Sally, Nathalie and Salwa showcase how to style the Nike Dunk High SP sneakers. You can read the full interview at NAKED online, where you can also learn more about Malala Fund.
