We got to know Charlie through his work at Dapper
, a Diemme wholesale partner and brilliant menswear store in Oslo. Dapper commissioned Charlie to work with them on their latest store location, and painted right on the wall, is one of Charlie's amazing characters, a dog, out hiking, in a pair of navy Diemme Everest AW19. A conversation at Dapper, sparked the idea of a collaboration, and Charlie had the vision of playing around with the Diemme logo. He drew an all of print of 17 different cartoons, all variations over the Diemme Mountain logo, that we printed onto an Italian canvas. After some testing, we decided to work on the Inverno Vet model, which is currently not in the Diemme collection. The last time we worked on the boot in canvas, was for our Elder Statesman collaboration three years ago.
Charlie also painted an amazing work, to go with the boots. His character, with a meta touch, is wearing the Charlie Roberts for Diemme, Inverno Vet.
Charlie Roberts for Diemme , a non-leather take on our classic silhouette, the Inverno Vet, on top of a Vibram Cristy Rubber sole construction. With Italian canvas, inside and out, Charlie Roberts take on Inverno Vet, has a touch of renaissance.
