J.M. WESTON "Klein Blue" SNEAKERS
Yves Klein was one of the most influential artists of the second half of the 20th century, always searching to stretch the boundaries of art. He sought to capture beauty and his revolutionary vision overlaps with the vision of J.M. Weston, luxury shoemaker that exemplifies creativity, craftsmanship and quality.
The brand teamed up with Klein’s estate to revamp the Moc’ Weston shoe with a new model in ultramarine calfskin suede in 2016 and now a new blue version has hit the market. The new model (for men and for women) are the epitome of French cool. Klein was always fascinated by deep blue of the Mediterranean sea & sky and in 1957 created a new shade of deep blue called International Klein Blue which he described as the perfect expression of blue.
You won't be surprised to note that it is this very shade of blue that features on the new, limited edition sneakers. The deep blue is the perfect way of bringing out the radiant white of the calfskin. Only 800 pairs are available for purchase from J.M. Weston stores in France and abroad from July 2017 from €475.
