With a contrasting presence that is both well known and discreet, Japanese market maker Hiroshi Fujiwara was on hand at last night’s launch of fragment design x Cole Haan LunarGrand Collection. Along with DJ Milo and an intimate gathering of VIPs, friends, and fans at the Cole Haan flagship store in SoHo, New York City, the event marked an important milestone as the first collaboration to base on LunarGrand design. It is also the first partnership between Fujiwara’s fragment design and Cole Haan.
Similar to other fragment design projects in the past, this new collaboration is not just a curated reflection of Fujiwara’s interest. It serves as a platform for premium construct and possible applications as well. Fashioned in the style of the immensely popular LunarGrand Chukka and LunarGrand Wingtip, both in black, Scotch grain leather with pebble grain finish on a contrasting white Lunarlon sole. In addition, the collection will be offering two more LunarGrand Wingtip designs in rich, corrected grain leather with waterproof treatment. These will be available in both a beige-colored upper with navy-colored Lunarlon outsole and a limited version, in putty/black colorway with a neon pink outsole, as a Cole Haan SoHo exclusive. Finally, all four silhouettes retained their Cole Haan characteristics except for an embossed fragment design logo on the tongue.
Priced around US$ 328 for the Chukka and US$ 298 for the Wingtips, the Cole Haan x fragment design LunarGrand Collection is already available at Cole Haan SoHo in New York City, followed by select retail locations around the globe with exception of the Neon Pink sole edition which will be a Cole Haan SoHo exclusive.
