ARKET and Morjas Put a Scandi Spin on the Loafer

For its Fall/Winter 2020 collection, Swedish label ARKET put Nordic traditions at the forefront by focusing mainly on both simplicity and function. In-keeping with the scandinavian theme, the label has now linked up with fellow Swedes Morjas for a limited-edition footwear release.

Sharing an appreciation for archetypal design and contemporary aesthetics, the brands have teamed up to develop their own interpretation of one of the icons of modern footwear: the penny loafer.

Handcrafted in Almansa, Spain — a region with a tradition of shoemaking dating back to the 18th century —each pair has been produced using 128 individual steps. Made using tonal black leather designed to age over time, the shoes are a distinct yet versatile style that suit both formal and casual occasions.

The ARKET x Morjas Penny Loafer is set to drop on October 1 at www.arket.com.
