Yves Klein was one of the most influential artists of the second half of the 20th century. As a freethinker and someone who marched to the beat of his own drum, he tirelessly sought to stretch the boundaries of art. He wanted to capture invisible beauty, while incarnating a new way of living as an artist fully devoted to his trade. His unique and revolutionary vision overlaps with the vision of J.M. Weston.
J.M. Weston first teamed up with Yves Klein’s estate back in spring 2016 to revamp the Moc’ Weston shoe with a new version made of ultramarine calfskin suede. Now, one year later, they have created the J.M. Weston Klein Blue® sneaker. A must-have item, these sneakers are the ideal medium of expression for experimenting with and reinterpreting fashion codes to create an original work of art.
A limited edition - the J.M. Weston Klein Blue® sneaker (800 pairs for men and women) will be available from the brand’s UK flagship store on Jermyn Street and online at: www.jmweston.com
