Taking inspiration from a sweet meringue-based confection, the maracon, UK retailer Footpatrol chooses heritage brand Le Coq Sportif as their latest partner for an upcoming collaborative project featuring the classic Éclat model.
After the release of our first collaboration with le coq sportif collaboration in 2012, we were honoured when asked to work together again – we would like to introduce the Footpatrol x le coq sportif Éclat “Macaron Edition”
Our previous collaboration was designed with the intention of being an “easy-to-wear” silhouette using materials comparable to the original 80′s runner. Our second collaboration pays tribute to France’s most famous confectionary creation the Macaron. Known for its’ intricate presentation and elegance, we wanted to take the same approach with our design by creating a “luxury edition”of the Éclat.
Like the Macaron “crisp on the outside and smooth in the middle” our Éclat features a pig-skin suede upper, super soft satin lining with hints of metallic gold running throughout. Inspiration for the colourway was taken from the flamboyant colour palettes of the Macaron, we then mixed in a pinch of 3M before adding the final gum outsole ingredient………………..and voilà!
The Footpatrol x le coq sportif Éclat “Macaron Edition” is due to release on Saturday 1st June.
