Designer Kiko Kostadinov embraces the concept of “new outdoors” by revisiting our archives and paying tribute to some of our most iconic styles. Strongly influenced by modern-day workwear, the artist channels his industrial inspiration into rugged typologies sporting extreme volume and complex, multi-piece constructions. With a sharp focus on protection and functionality, Kostadinov is the kind of provocative young talent capable of infusing decades of shoemaking heritage with an experimental aesthetic that is all his own.
