Innovation, experimentation and design are the stylistic elements that define the collaboration, in perfect creative harmony, which starts from the study of materials to arrive at a product that is a pure synthesis of design and fashion. Knot, the design sandal, stands out for its tank tread sole and the inimitable “bow,” already the distinctive feature of the N°21 collections.
Made of shiny plastic material, it comes in 5 colors: black, powder pink, mustard yellow, khaki and burgundy. The play of light between the matte and glossy effect of the sole and the bow gives the footwear great lightness and energy.
Alessandro Dell’Acqua, creative director and founder of N°21, explains the collaboration: “Working on the creation of Knot has been challenging and fun. I was able to experiment with new materials, and to reconcile the worlds of fashion and design. Kartell is an example of a great producer of Made in Italy, ready to offer designers all its know-how, generating a product with bold fashion content, without neglecting comfort and practicality.”
Lorenza Luti, Marketing & Retail director of Kartell in charge of the Kartell à la Mode division adds: “We are enthusiastic about this new collaboration with N°21. In keeping with the differences between the two brands, there has been great harmony, the desire to create an initial joint project with a long-term perspective. Kartell has granted full expressive freedom to the designer, while actively contributing to project development thanks to our technological know-how. The Knot sandal proves that Kartell also has a strong fashion identity today, transferring a world of values and lifestyle into a fashion accessory.”
