Philippe Starck x Ipanema: Summer Has Never Been this Colorful

Brazilian footwear brand Ipanema latest collection, in collaboration with designer Philippe Starck, combines comfort and elegance with six different models featuring minimalist and timeless designs.

The 2019 collection, surprises with new color options. Monochrome white and black balance the palette of pastel shades, such as green and light pink, and flashes of neon add an extra special touch to the sought after styles. In addition, the line also includes two unisex models offered in an extended size range up to size 46 (US 13).

Philippe Starck says, “For 2019, I’s all about color. Everything is color, everywhere. Colors come from the light, which is everything because nothing exists outside of the light. For this collection, the colors are elegant, modern and a hint flashy with certain models including a touch of neon coloring. The collection includes the now iconic forms, like the Hoops sandals and is made using 100% recyclable materials with a bionic approach, allowing the sandals to become part of the body.”

Launched in 2015, the collaboration between Ipanema and Philippe Starck is focused on sustainability, freedom of choice and timeless elegance. Since the beginning, Ipanema has been adapting its industrial process to achieve Starck’s designs. Created using a more manual and artisanal process, the Ipanema with Starck sandals are the perfect balance between industrial production and artisanal savoir-faire and are now made with 100% recyclable materials.
