Swedish brand Hums, the brand responsible for giving the humble slipper its due recognition as an all-purpose shoe, has just teamed up with high street favourite & Other Stories on a mini collection of elegant and stylish day slippers: the Hums & Other Stories Co-Lab.
If you know Hums, you’ll know how great their fashionable but fun ready-to-wear luxury slippers are – perfectly bridging the gap between shoe and slipper, they are the ultimate ‘house shoe’. However, it’s quite likely you’ve never heard of the Stockholm-based brand before, which is why their collaboration with also Scandinavian brand & Other Stories is a perfect pairing – and will certainly put them firmly on the map in the UK.
The mini collection of four styles introduces customers to Hums’s signature playful yet refined design that is always balanced by excellent quality and great comfort.
‘When creating this mini collection, we selected four styles together with & Other Stories design team,’ says Henrietta Nyvang, Creative Director at Hums. ‘We started thinking about the styles as people and wanted each one to reflect different personality traits that we feel are important to cherish in this day and age.’
With that in mind, each slipper does have its own distinct ‘personality’: ‘The cat style is strong and independent while the checkered character is colourful, creative and spreads positive energy. The heart is sincere, passionate and straightforward – it dares to be frank. The secret heart character reflects kindness and empathy,’ reads the press release.
With prices ranging from £62-71, these would make the perfect Christmas gift to someone who deserves a little luxury in their life – and as we’re all at home way more than usual these days, slippers are more of an essential than ever, so we say invest in some for yourself, too.
Disa Treutiger, Head of Shoe Design at & Other Stories, says: ‘Hums is a piece of art in a slipper shape. Their playful illustrations and prints come alive in beautiful colour combinations that brighten up your day! Comfortable and stylish with an elegant touch is a winning combination.’
The Hums & Other Stories Co-Lab is available to shop exclusively at stories.com from tomorrow, 19 November.
