London-based footwear label Duke + Dexter is ready to take off, welcoming entertainment magazine Playboy as its co-pilot. Following the sell-out success of the preceding collection, the duo teams up once again to release its sophomore range.
Inspired by the private jet-set lifestyle, the collaboration reignites a sense of glamor back to travel. Referring to the elegance of '90s airport attire, both brands crafted a series of graphic footwear and accessories that provide a sleek appeal on the ground and in the sky. The latest collection also introduces its first-ever women’s range after being inundated by an influx of requests. The label is known for making custom pairs for celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna.
"This Playboy collab is another step forward in our mission to give our community something completely different. We've referenced Playboy's amazing history with the designs, but we've also given it a direction that points to the future – it feels inclusive, progressive, and empowering," the label shared in a press release.
Paying homage to Playboy, the penny loafer line-up features five print variations citing its vintage covers. Each style is limited to just 250 pairs and is available in both men's and women's sizes. Travel accessories also make their debut, comprising luxurious silk robes, opulent eye masks, leather wash bags, three wallet styles and luggage tags.
