When it comes to timeless design and refined aesthethic sense, few others can compare to Scandinavians. From architecture to furniture, and in more recent years, clothing, they have been dishing out some of the most coveted and universally acclaimed creations out there. Renowned for its clean lines and minimalistic feel, Scandinavian design features trademark traits that make it as appealing as timeless. Some of my favourite brands in recent years are based there, with Stockholm appearing as an epicenter for creative minds: one I’ve been keeping an eye out for some time is Rokin. As I’ll be teaming up with them and The Feeting Room for an exclusive giveaway next week, the timing seemed perfect for a feature.
Founded by Christoffer Brattin, Rokin sets out to deliver quality footwear with a modern feel, while embodying the values of craftsmanship and the aforementioned sleek aesthetic. Its exclusive lasts exude the perfect mix of elegance and raw, clean lines, materialized through sturdy models perfectly adapted to modern/urban environments. Manufactured in Portugal, renowned for its heritage and know-how in the shoemaking industry, Rokin resorts only to the finest leathers, often treated with techniques such as stonewash. Soles are combination of leather and quality rubber, providing both comfort and durability.
Stay tuned for a chance to win a model from their AW14 collection!
