Dispair London x Depaul UK SS13 & COMPETITION!


Having just released a bold collection for AW12, DISPAIR London move right on over to SS13 to share with us their collaboration with Depaul UK for a Limited Edition product to make a difference!

So just to school you on who is who, Depaul UK is the largest national youth homelessness charity in the UK and they have teamed up with innovative mens footwear brand, DISPAIR to offer the opportunity for one young person to be a guest designer of a limited edition DISPAIR London shoe.

A competition to submit design ideas was opened to the young people helped by Depaul UK with 100% of profits from the winning design going directly to Depaul UK. The design competition proved to be hugely popular with well over the expected number of entrants. The winner was chosen, a former resident of Depaul UK’s Simonside supported Newcastle accommodation, with the design being put onto DISPAIR London’s most popular style, the Winston, a loafer shoe with monk strap detailing!

DISPAIR London, founded in 2011, has since worked closely with Depaul UK and the competition winner on every step of the process, offering the young person work experience in the fashion footwear industry and being fully involved in the design process along the way.

The shoe will be part of DISPAIR London’s SS13 collection, available in navy, grey, off-white and black. Hitting TopMan stores in February 2013, so be on the look out!!
