DHL’s Next Collab Spotted At Paris Fashion Week

DHL Collab Incoming.

Paris Fashion Week is almost over, but we’ve figured out what’s coming right after; DHL’s next fashion collab drop. Over the past few days, street style photographers spotted DHL’s logo on the back of a pair of chukka boots, and it’s safe to say that it’s going to the logistics provider’s next fashion partnership – and it’s with an African shoe brand, Veldskoen shoes.

The multi-colour boots feature a thick red sole and DHL’s logo on the back with a small South African flag. Also on the shoes is graffiti of the words ‘Dear’ and ‘Everyone’, which we’ve found out is the title of the collab: #DearEveryone.

On Selfridges’ Instagram stories, fashion aficionado Geoff K. Cooper who wore a pair of shoes to PFW, leaked that DHL’s next drop is in partnership with Offspring and will retail at Selfridges. Other influencers were also spotted wearing the shoes throughout the week, including Jordan Tupac, who wore it to Vivienne Westwood.

Minnie Dlamini, South African celebrity and broadcaster, rocked the shoe outside the Valentino show, confirming the collab. Dlamini also told Pause she owns a few pairs of Veldskoens and was proud that DHL chose an African brand to collab with.

Veldskoen Shoes is an African purveyor of leather shoes and was most recently the official off-field shoe of South African Olympians. A Veldskoen is a walking shoe used by South African farmers for centuries and is a South African term meaning a shoe made of leather.

DHL has become synonymous with unexpected fashion brand collaborations over the past few years. The logistics provider’s Vetements DHL T-shirt, which debuted on a Paris catwalk for their 2016 Spring/Summer season, stunned the fashion world and became one of the most coveted corporate fashion collab items.
