Nigel Cabourn and Yuketen have come together to rework a classic silhouette from the latter, below is a short insight to the project.
Nigel and Yuki from Yuketen met at Pitti L’Uomo 2 years ago. There was a great energy between them and they got on so well, it was as if they had known each other for a long time. Nigel had been an admirer of the collection for 3 years and was really keen to collaborate using a Yuketen classic style and mixing it with British fabrication.
This was Nigel’s first collaboration with another designer and the 1st shoe to be launched used WWII ventile, his favourite fabric. This was a great success and was followed by a 2nd in Harris Tweed. These two models are only available from our shop in Tokyo, The Army Gym.
