In 2013 it was announced that after a 36 year long journey, the American space probe “Voyager-1” had left our solar system and entered interstellar space.
For FW’14, Eytys introduce the new style “Odyssey”. It comes with the same signature sole as debut style “Mother” but is equipped with higher shaft and tongue. It’s fully padded and has leather lining, making it highly suitable for winter wear. Mother and Odyssey are now also offered with black soles.
The collection consists of artworks and animations based on Voyager-1’s vast expedition. The story unfolds in collaboration with London based artist and image-maker Tom Sewell who creates images stretching the possibilities that working digitally with colour allows. Exploring the themes of the wonders of nature, and inspired by psychedelia, pop culture and meditation, Sewell’s space surroundings are printed on sneakers as well as the FW’14 packaging.
The full Eytys FW’14 collection will be released on August 27th 2014.
