BIRKENSTOCK 1774 Gets the Tekla Treatment
Resulting in a cozy new collection of footwear and sleepwear.
BIRKENSTOCK just joined forces with Tekla, marking the design duo’s first-ever team-up. Made for “moments of comfort,” the cozy collection comprises the Stock’s signature footwear styles alongside Tekla’s classic sleepwear silhouettes.
Born from a shared love of quality and craftsmanship, the collection sees BIRKENSTOCK taking its first steps into the world of apparel while, similarly, Tekla makes its foray into footwear. “There is a natural synergy between BIRKENSTOCK and Tekla, with quality and craftsmanship central to what we do. We wanted to explore this further with a collection that looks at the idea of rest as a form of inspiration,” explains Tekla’s creative lead, Cristoffer Lundman.
Featuring BIRKENSTOCK’s Nagoya slip-on clog and Uji sandal, the collaboration adds elevated design details to the classic silhouettes, with each pair arriving in a slew of saturated colors of “Slate,” “Straw,” “Mauve” and “Powder.” BIRKENSTOCK’s signature cork footbed is drenched in luxurious shearling and finished with a smooth Nappa leather heel wrap. The collection also features a range of sleepwear silhouettes in coordinating colors.
“BIRKENSTOCK’s reputation for functional and quality footwear and Tekla’s mastery in creating distinct and comfortable sleepwear unite. By combining our expertise, we deliver a unique collection that not only looks great but also embodies the feeling of home. We share the belief that this is more than just a physical space but also a sense of comfort, intimacy and familiarity. Our carefully crafted products allow our customers to carry this sentiment with them wherever they may go,” adds the managing director at BIRKENSTOCK 1774, Klaus Baumann.
