Docksides are covered in Sunrise fabricThe directly owned brand of Basic Net, Sebago, and the Sease lifestyle brand founded by Franco and Giacomo Loro Piana, inaugurate a new partnership with Docksides as the protagonist.
Iconic Docksides boat shoes are now presented in Sunrise, featuring the wool and bio-based nylon fabric of Sease. “The meeting between the two realities occurred while we were buying Sebago. Franco and Giacomo began telling us of the philosophy behind their brand. Sease, which represents the first collaboration of our new course, works with wonderful fabrics and has the same values as Sebago (editor’s note: innovation and tradition)”, explained Lorenzo Boglione, Vice President of sales at Basic net to MFF.
The collection is proposed in three combinations of materials and colours: classic Sunrise, red and blue matched with brown leather, and nubuck and grey suede.
Sunrise fabric arrives from the technology used by the English during the war in Africa as a means of reflecting the sun’s rays. Sease took this historic fabric and revamped it in a technological-sporty key, using bio-based nylon to reinforce the durability and resistance of the fabric, alongside wool, thereby transforming it into a technical product ideal for boating and the city.
The capsule collection was presented in the Sease store in Milano Brera and will be sold in directly owned stores and on the sease.it website.
This is only the first collaboration for the two brands: in fact, both companies would like to see the collaboration continue also in the seasons to come.
