While socks may be an often overlooked commodity, Japanese sock savants, Chup and premium Melbourne retailer, Up There, have brought something new to the table. The Up There x Chup collaboration pack or “Chupthere Pack” for short, sees a limited run of 99 pairs per colourway in a Fair Isle melange theme. Each pair is made in Japan using Chup’s unique blend of organic cottons, and finished off in a special hand-linking machine for a strong seam. Available in Aqua, Purple or Sky Blue, the Chupthere Pack encompasses one of Chup’s classic Fair Isle patterns, accompanied with dark bases and lighter hues. Exclusive to Up There in store and online.
