Moon Boot Taps Alanui For New Collaboration
The Capsule of Eternal Ice and the Search for Authenticity
Fashioned to survive turbulent weather, The Moon Boot is a trademark of adventure. Popping up in both cities, and rural landscapes—The transgenerational and timeless Moon Boot has adorned icons, as well as everyday folk. The versatile shoewear functions as both a statement that catches the eye, and footwear that promotes longevity when encountering the elements. Moon Boot, and luxury Italian label Alanui’s newest collaboration capsule features three stylistic variations of the symbolic design. Reflecting both brands’ love for the outdoors—the iconic boot represents the shared vision of eternal nature.
Founder and Creative Director of Alanui Carlotta Oddi said “The collaboration between Alanui and Moon Boot was a natural evolution. Moon Boot is the boot that more than any other in the collective imagination belongs to the world of mountain and après-ski excursions, which certainly best describes the inspiration of our Collection.”
The capsule is composed of three designs: Icon High, Icon Low, and Full Moon—All available in 3-6 multifaceted colorways, adorned with Alanui’s signature embossed motifs. Materials such as waterproof wool, suede, and recycled beads embodied the various styles. Italian-made footwear is a longstanding trademark for the country’s culture, making this newest collection a natural next step. In recent press, the Moon Boot was included in the list of top 100 most symbolic twentieth-century designs at the Louvre Museum of Paris, as well as exhibited in the permanent gallery at the MoMa in New York.
