Ipanema with STARCK

Ipanema has partnered with Philippe Starck for Ipanema with STARCK, a Spring/Summer 2016 shoe collection that reimagines footwear. Starck re-envisioned a collection of modern, elegant sandals accessible to purveyors of stylish and smart innovation worldwide.

The Ipanema with STARCK collection features four distinct designs, offered in a myriad of 12 colors each - 48 total combinations. These dynamic sandals are inspired by various possible lifestyles and moods to recognize all dimensions of the modern woman, such as arty, glamour, nature and sophisticated chic.

"The Ipanema with STARCK collection explores the territory of high elegance paired with the utmost minimalism," Starck commented. "When you reach elegance with a few dollars or euros, this is no longer magic; it is a modern miracle."

Focusing on sustainability, Ipanema with STARCK was developed with 30% recycled materials and is 100% recyclable. To achieve Starck's designs, Ipanema adapted its industrial process to one that is more manual and artisanal. The production process employs proprietary plastique injection technique to guarantee product comfort and delicate quality. The shoes handcrafted assembly of the straps to the sole allows a perfect fit for the women.
