CLOT and Timberland team up for apparel and footwear collection
Making their collaborative debut in true east-west style, CLOT & Timberland enter the mix with a mission to deliver a series of products that reflect their best two.
We’ve reached a point in collaborative culture, whether it’s in fashion, sneakers, video games, tech, cars, food or whatever, where everyone teams up with everyone else. Some are unexpected, many make perfect sense, and if we know anything, there’s plenty more to come.
Often the surprises don’t lie in who collaborated yet flew under the radar but who didn’t. Given their rich and diverse histories and cultural significance, Timberland and CLOT are one of those surprises.
Comprising a concise footwear and apparel offering, the pair’s debut release is a welcome addition to the DNA of both.
A sort of cultural mix, the collaboration selects elements from both brands’ origins to form a unified whole. For CLOT, this is based on the symbolism he has applied to Timberland pieces. “Dragon designs have always appeared in our designs. It’s mystical, it takes power, and it’s very representative of Chinese culture,” says CLOT founder and creative director Edison Chen.
Product-wise, the collection offers a beautifully remixed take on the classic hand-stitched 3-eye boat shoe, seasonally updated with CLOT’s traditional colorful dragon designs. Arriving in palettes of everyday black and brown, the shoes stand out with every stride, while being unmistakably Timberland – with quality and comfort.
The footwear component is bolstered by a selection of apparel, including embroidered duck canvas work pants and a matching Chore jacket, as well as t-shirts and hoodies.
With all the bases covered, you better keep an eye out for Slam Jam, Timberland and JUICE starting July 20 to shop the full collection.
