wings+horns x Porter is a travel-inspired 10th anniversary collaboration consisting of a versatile custom rucksack and zippered wallet. A decade ago, wings+horns was conceived on journeys between Canada and Japan, and this project, proudly made in Japan by Porter, honours those roots.
Innovative use of fabrics is a key theme of the wings+horns ten year project. Both of these pieces are constructed from a mix of leather and suede, with the rucksack also incorporating nylon flight satin and heavy duty canvas. Featured elements of the wings+horns x Porter rucksack include an orange water resistant liner, side entry zipper with reinforced side carry handle, and two way zippers throughout.
The latest in this year’s series of wings+horns 10th anniversary projects is the premium suede ‘Desert Creeper’ boot, handmade by legendary British shoemaking company George Cox. True to their reputations for craftsmanship and innovation, the Desert Creeper combines wings+horns’ signature 4-needle stitching with George Cox’s famous woven Creeper toe.
George Hamilton Cox introduced the first Creeper in 1949, and the construction of the wings+horns x George Cox Desert Creeper is as timeless as its design. Featuring Goodyear welting, a natural crepe sole and a custom co-branded insole, each pair of boots is authentically handcrafted in Northhamptonshire, England, where George Cox was established in 1906.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the showroom and made the launch of the ken diamond x wings+horns moccasins such a success.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of wings+horns, Vancouver-based leather craftsman Ken Diamond has created two custom interpretations of his signature hand-stitched moccasins.
The Ken Diamond x wings+horns collaboration consists of the Thomme and the Koko, two styles handcrafted from black Horween Chromexcel leather. Born from a shared design philosophy founded on quality and integrity, each pair of moccasins is carefully finished with a cushioned veggie tan insole, a durable veggie tan midsole, and Vibram rubber outsole.
Ken Diamond x wings+horns will be available for purchase Friday, June 13th at 10am EST.
