For armchair travelers dreaming of a vacation at the beach, Sperry Top-Sider of Lexington, Mass., can satisfy their fantasies with the spring ’15 launch of a series of men’s and women’s styles inspired by the work of Los Angeles photographer Gray Malin.
The collaboration features boat shoes sporting images taken by Malin, who has made his career traveling the world and taking aerial photos of pristine beaches from a helicopter.
Included in the limited-edition series are three unisex styles: the Authentic Original laceup, the CVO striper, a vulcanized lace-up style, and the CVO slip-on, a vulcanized slip-on version, retailing from $65 to $90. Each incorporates an image from sun worshipers to an ocean scene.
Set to deliver in March, the collection is targeted at independents, department stores and e-tailers.
