Karhu works with Spectrum and EGS on Aria 95 shoe

As ever, the creative endeavours of Karhu continue to pique our interest. The latest development comes int he shape of this three way partnership between the Finnish brand, Milan store SPECTRUM and Finnish graffiti artist EGS. Together they present the limited edition “Three Letters” KARHU Aria 95.

The design draws inspiration from EGS’s visionary glass sculptures, shaping the shoe with a pristine upper crafted from premium materials. A mix of long-hair suede, premium short-hair suede, buttered leather, and nylon ripstop details in very light colours encapsulate the fragility of blown glass, delivering a unique multi-sensorial experience.

Distinctive E-G-S letter-like forms are meticulously embossed on the heels, faithfully mirroring the colors and shapes of his original graffiti and artworks. The clear outsole, executed to mimic glass, proudly displays EGS’s trademark patterns. This commitment to artistic execution extends seamlessly to the shoes’ insoles, which feature custom EGS sketches and co-branded logos. Complete with two sets of laces and presented in a custom box with matching wrapping paper, this limited-edition Aria 95 stands as a testament to the harmonious fusion of premium materials and meticulous execution in every detail.

KARHU x SPECTRUM x EGS Aria 95 “Three Letters” will be released at SPECTRUM stores on April 18th and online at on the 19th. The global release is set for May 3rd at, KARHU Helsinki and Verona stores, and selected partners worldwide.
