Okun x MULO Collaboration
Whether you’re crossing off the days on the calendar until you jet off to sunnier climes, or are setting up sticks in the back garden, barbeque tongs in hand, it’s time to invest in some sun-appropriate threads.
For most of us Brits, a summer wardrobe might be a bit of an alien concept – so if you find yourself flailing wildly with no idea where to start, look no further than new luxury brand OKÚN.
Releasing their debut collection in early 2013, OKÚN draws inspiration from the vibrancy of African culture, using bold prints and rich colours throughout their range of swim shorts, beachwear and accessories.
On top of this, the new brand has also already got an impressive collaboration under their belt, teaming up with renowned British footwear company MULO to release a limited edition line of espadrilles specifically for summer.
MULO, which was set up in 2010 to create “the perfect summer shoe”, uses waxed cotton to create their range of espadrilles, combining the style synonymous with the classic shape with the practicality of a sturdier fabric so as to work within the unpredictable British climate.
These classically stylish and durable shoes, paired with OKÚN’s modern and vibrant prints, are a match made in footwear heaven. Perfect for summer, the waxed cotton means the shoes will also age wonderfully – think a classic Barbour jacket, but on your feet – providing a true investment that can be brought from the depths of the wardrobe summer after summer.
The shoes are currently available in three African prints for a limited time only. Shop the collection at okunbeachwear.com.
