The fashion insider brand is known for their streamlined yet chunky-soled shoes, unisex approach, and perfectly designed wardrobe staples. The Eytys x H&M line will feature genderless shoes, clothing, and accessories for adults and a selection for kids, designed in collaboration with the H&M in-house team.
The Eytys design approach and overall ethos are rooted in the digital age, but also in freedom from restraints based on gender or age. Together, the brands have extracted the core of Eytys DNA and developed a unisex collection featuring a no-fuss and fashion-forward range of shoes and clothes.
“We admire that Eytys has a look distinctly their own and initially approached them with the idea of creating a shoe collection. But after initial brainstorming, it was decided that a full collection – shoes, clothes and accessories – would enable our customers to really experience the whole brand aesthetic and ethos. With this collaboration we want to offer our customers a total look that is all about chunky statement shoes and mindful proportions that are genderless.” Ross Lydon, Acting Head of Menswear Design at H&M
The line includes sneakers, shoes, and boots in leather, suede and cotton canvas along with jackets, tops, pants, and jeans in materials such as cotton twill, faux patent leather, nylon, and raw denim. Designed together by the H&M’s in-house team and Eytys, all the shoes have the distinctive Eytys sole, while the clothes have boxy silhouettes and don’t distinguish between genders.
Snakeskin print, shiny faux patent leather, and supple suede are mixed with stiff cotton and humorous graphics. The color palette consists of bottle green, school bus yellow, beige khaki, dark indigo, black, and white. Everything can be effortlessly mixed and matched to suit any mood and allows the customer to really showcase their confidence – in themselves and their style. Each pair of shoes comes with a custom-designed box featuring a unique artwork by painter Zoe Barcza.
The collection will be available in selected stores like Harlem at 125 West 125th Street at Adam Clayton Powell Blvd., and worldwide as well as online starting January 24, 2019.
