Inspired by the house and landscape where Georgia O'Keeffe spent her last years
Graphpaper, the brand by creative director Takayuki Minami, has presented a collaboration model with a niche shoe brand ZDA in its AW2022 collection.
ZDA is a shoe brand that used to be manufactured in a small town called Partizanske in Czechoslovakia, Eastern Europe, from the 1950s to the 1980s. ZDA is a shoe brand that used to be manufactured in a small town called Partizanske in Czechoslovakia, Eastern Europe, from the 1950s to the 1980s.
The collaboration model is based on the brand's "Climber" trekking shoes, and they are made by hand using the original soles, lasts and production methods. Graphpaper reflects the season's theme in these shoes.
The coloring inspired by the walls and the landscape of the "Ghost Ranch and Abbeyview House" where the female artist Georgia O'Keeffe spent her last years and stones that she collected as a hobby, is expressed in a combination of grey gradients and white beige.
The upper is made of high-quality Italian suede and soft Italian Nappa leather, giving it an elegant, luxurious feel. The chunky sole is also unique, making it a pair that goes well with wide trousers and such.
It will be available at Graphpaper AOYAMA / KYOTO / SENDAI and other Graphpaper stockists across Japan on 1 October.
