Watson&Parker at Pitti UomoThe new SS19 collection is a tribute to the journey undertaken by James Cook in 1768 onboard the Endeavour in the discovery of Australia and its Great Barrier Reef, which at that time was uncontaminated.
The colour palette thus makes the tones of the sea’s great depths its protagonists – from emerald green to cobalt blue -, united with the nuances of coral and the extremely colourful tones of fish, in a range that spans from fluo yellow to violet. At the same time, inspiration is also taken from the world of sailing with rope tones and the wooden colour of the helm. Last, but not least, the soles are made of ultralight EVA in order to guarantee maximum comfort. With these proposals, the brand’s intent is to bring one of the most important modern-day themes of respect for our planet and the environment back under the spotlight.
