More then any other footwear powerhouse, Karhu has sunk their fashion teeth into the Moomin world like no one else. For their second release of 2022, Karhu teams with Moomin for a custom two-piece sneaker pack release.
Context for you, created by author and illustrator Tove Jansson in 1945, the Moomins are a family of carefree, adventurous trolls from the eponymous Finnish storybook series. Similar to previous releases, this cult-classic has teamed with Karhu on their Fusion 2.0 and Aria 95 silhouettes for this duo-pack.
For these two releases we capture Moomintroll gracing the upper of each sneaker, which takes direct influence from the story of Moominpappa at sea. The Fusion 2.0 arrives in color-waves of “India Ink/Chambray Blue” to mimic the Moomins’ journey at sea, while the Aria 95 is drenched in “Dawn Blue/Sleet” and utilizes a sturdy mesh and a reflective M-logo paying homage to the rocky island lighthouse where the family eventually lands. Both silhouettes adorn splashes of red which are inspired by Moomintroll’s scarf, while vibrant geometric patterns highlight the colors of Moominvalley.
The full collection is set to drop as a pack on February 4 and will be available from the brand’s online store.
