Sometimes things happen for a reason. Those are the moments you wonder why they happened in the past since they seem so logical. The Birkenstock 1774 x TEKLA collaboration embodies such a moment, forming a testament to the shared values of craftsmanship held dear by both brands. It signifies an important milestone in their journeys: Birkenstock 1774 delves into the realm of apparel, while TEKLA ventures into the enchanting world of footwear.
As expected, footwear and sleepwear pieces are meticulously crafted from premium materials, adorned with Birkenstock’s iconic silhouettes, and infused with Tekla’s unique approach to color, creating an aesthetic that appears as if it has been gracefully “dipped in color.”
“There is a natural synergy between BIRKENSTOCK and Tekla, with quality and craftsmanship central to
our work,” explains Christoffer Lundman, creative lead at TEKLA. “We wanted to explore this further with a collection that looks at the idea of rest as a form of inspiration.” The footwear in this collection embraces a calming palette, featuring both understated and vivid block colors sourced from the enchanting Tekla color universe. Immerse yourself in monochromatic bliss with four captivating hues: Slate, Straw, Mauve, and Powder. For an added touch of indulgence, Birkenstock’s distinctive cork footbed is ensconced in fluffy shearling, ensuring unparalleled comfort with every step. “BIRKENSTOCK’s reputation for functional and quality footwear and Tekla’s mastery in creating distinct and comfortable sleepwear unite,” says Klaus Baumann, Managing Director at Birkenstock 1774. “By combining our expertise, we deliver a unique collection that looks great and embodies the feeling of home. We believe 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 wherever they go.”
The sleepwear collection includes an oversized kaftan with elevated details: an elongated long-sleeved shirt with a straight hem, buttoned cuffs, and a stand collar, and pants and shorts with a single leg pleat for extra volume. All sleepwear is cut in an oversized, unisex fit from TEKLA’s crisp and lightweight cotton poplin that feels gentle.
So, mark your calendar because the collaboration will launch on October 12th, exclusively via Matches and TEKLA’s flagship store in Copenhagen.
