FREEDOM MOSES AND JONATHAN SIMKHAI KEEP IT CHILL THIS SPRING WITH OUR NEW COLLECTION OF SLIDES


Freedom Moses and Jonathan Simkhai have collaborated on a collection of ethereal, printed slides launching this April. Comprised of three styles, the Freedom Moses x Jonathan Simkhai collection comes in two varying tie-dyes and a floral print to perfectly pair with Jonathan Simkhai’s spring Swim and Jonathan Simkhai Standard collections. Each pair of slides is recyclable, cruelty-free and 100% vegan, continuing both Freedom Moses’ and Jonathan Simkhai’s commitment to sustainability.

Freedom Moses Founder and Designer, Sarah Gurt said, “Translating Jonathan’s effortless spring vibe of his Spring Collection to our slides only reinforced the symbiosis between our brands. Our commitment to use sustainable materials in our sourcing process pairs perfectly with Jonathan’s commitment to the environment. We had so much fun creating these styles and think they will bring everyone some much needed joy.”

I couldn't be more excited about this partnership with Sarah Gurt of Freedom Moses, a brand that is filled and founded with so much love and optimism. We both have a strong appreciation for unconventional, eccentric-looking, and California inspired items and prints, so designing this collaboration with Freedom Moses was so much fun and so seamless,” Mr. Simkhai added. “I have an enormous appreciation for what Sarah represents as a sustainable and Earth-friendly footwear designer. Her stance on putting the planet first with everything she does while sourcing materials is a similar stance to what we're doing at Jonathan Simkhai. I am hoping that this collaboration is the first of many with Freedom Moses."

The collection will be available exclusively on Shopbop and Freedomoses.com, and each style will retail for $65 USD.

About Jonathan Simkhai

Established in 2010, the Jonathan Simkhai brand provides luxury ready-to-wear for the modern woman. The core aesthetic philosophy plays with the tension of feminine strength and sensuality; this is reflected in the employment of customized fabrics, romantic detailing, linear lines, and contoured silhouettes. Simkhai is continuously inspired by the built environment, which motivates his creative process and desire to push conventional design boundaries. His work often explores the confluence of technology and hand-made artistry. Deftly blending the energy of the brand’s native New York with the nature and simplicity of its Los Angeles home, Simkhai continues to redefine the 21st century wardrobe and reinvigorate American fashion. Founded in New York, Jonathan Simkhai launched his eponymous label after years of experience as a buyer and merchandiser. He honed his technical skills at Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Early success of the label propelled Simkhai into the CFDA {Fashion Incubator} program where he developed his eye for quality of craft. As a 2015 winner of the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, Jonathan Simkhai is currently sold in over 200 retail locations across the world.
