Koio and Beverly Hills Hotel Team Up for Lush New Shoe Collection

Even though fall is here, the designers at one of our favorite brands would like to keep those summer vibes around just a little bit longer. To help with that, Koio teamed up with the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel for a three-shoe collection centered on the property’s iconic Martinique banana leaf wallpaper.

“There’s such a classic prestige with the hotel,” says Koio co-founder Johannes Quodt. “They take so much care in keeping their brand really interesting too.”

Hollywood decorator Don Loper originally created the banana leaf print in 1942. It became synonymous with luxury and celebrity in the 1970s as the backdrop in many celebrity photos. Over time, it’s been plastered on walls around the world (and is easily available for any home today).

Koio builds sneakers in the same classic prestige, but with an Italian twist. Each pair takes up to four hours to craft by hand in the brand’s factory in Civitanova Marche, Italy.

The Beverly Hills Hotel collaboration features two low-top profiles and one high-top, all covered in Loper’s print.

Although the hotel has done footwear collabs before (with accessory brand Buscemi), this will mark the hotel’s first luxury sneaker in a decidedly much more low-profile wearable. The designs fall right in line with Koio’s loft aspirations to be a worldwide brand (Quodt and co-founder Christ Wichert started the company in 2014 and have seen exponential growth in the time since).

“Traveling and global mobility are an important part of the collaboration — and our brand too,” Quodt says.

The Koio and Beverly Hills Hotel collection is on sale now and you can purchase yours here. Wherever you end up this fall and winter, a pair of these Koios will transport you to sunnier skies and warmer days spent poolside at one the country’s most notoriously chic hotels.
