Since being founded in 2015, Studio Hagel has established a reputation as the world’s leading experimental footwear design studio. We design and develop collections that are rooted in a creative concept that can be applied to everything. Whatever we do, we don’t settle for the ordinary.
The first collaboration between Stepney Workers Club and Studio Hagel, ‘EXP1’, is all about embracing the inconsistences and imperfections that come with the handmade nature of the vulcanised construction process.
As a result, each pair is subtly unique to the others and exude the experimental approach of Studio Hagel.
The Ecco Leather x STUDIO HAGEL collaboration explores the concept of functionality in a different light, which resulted in the collection named “UTW63716“. Material development, art direction and design done by STUDIO HAGEL in collaboration with Ecco leather.
Footwear design for Botter Spring/Summer 2023 Collection “The plastic sea”. Bringing water to the runway.
Showing an elongated silhouet that peels of the body like a wet suit would. Shoes that feel like they are floating in tranquil water, moving gracefully.
