KangaROOS x ATELIER KAMP Ultralite MiG “VIC”
Kangaroos and the Vienna based design studio Atelier Kamp are dropping the Ultralite MiG *VIC* on September 10! Sneaker & matching tee will be available here.
We tell you the backstory to the collab in this blog article.
ATELIER KAMP’s Ultralite MiG *VIC* is inspired by the „Vienna International Center“, also known as „UNO-City“. This extraordinary building from the 70’s has shaped our aestetic sensitivity significantly while it’s synonymous with the Donauinsel – Vienna’s most popular local recreational area.
The *VIC* opened its doors in 1979 – right when Bob Gamm launched his “shoes with a pocket” – and is rented by the United Nations (UN) for one symbolic Schilling (0,07 €) since then.
The 90’s indoor silhouette is mainly wrapped in buttery smooth Nappa leather, with microperforations on the toe and qulited sidepanels to reference the building’s structure. A beautiful bluish light grey takes on most of the upper while dark grey suede covers the heel part.
Different shades of 70’s orange can be found on the animal stripe, laces, lacejewels as well as the terry cloth lining. White nubuck and creme beige suede details as well as lilac TPU eyelets provide for accents. A creme beige sole unit with lilac details and a violet stabilizer are finishing off this future classic.
