Eco-friendly French label Veja have teamed up with renowned English supermodel and Sky Rainforest Rescue Ambassador Lily Cole to launch a limited-edition sneaker collection to help preserve the rainforest. Known as ‘Taua’ the sneakers are available in three stand-out summer shades with each design featuring a flora and fauna pattern inspired by Lily’s trip to the Amazon in 2012. Made in Brazil, the sneakers are made from an organic cotton canvas and have a sole made from wild Amazonian rubber.
When asked in an interview why she chose this project, Cole stated “I love the world and believe we have a moral obligation – for ourselves, for each other, and for generations to come – to seek to protect it. The rainforest provides 20% of the oxygen we breathe, and deforestation contributes 15% of global carbon dioxide emissions… its protection is thus an imperative piece in our fight against global warming.”
Sky Rainforest Rescue is a partnership between Sky and WWF to help protect one billion trees in Brazil. For every pair of sneakers sold Sky will donate £10 to Sky rainforest Rescue and WWF.
These limited Veja X Sky Rainforest Rescue X Lily Cole are available at Offspring Selfridges London and online here

New to the Offspring family is ICNY, a brand that utilizes a unique 3M reflective application on socks and t-shirts that produce a strobe effect when lit, making the wearer visible at night.
Started in Brooklyn, New York by designer Michael Cherman, ICNY was created after the designer himself was involved in several accidents while riding his bike at night. He wanted to create something to help himself and other cyclists stay safe while riding at night and make functional and stylish basics with visibility features.
ICNY is not just for cyclists. It’s for anyone who wants to be seen at night; runners, skaters and pedestrians alike, meeting at the intersection of safety and style.
ICNY is available in Offspring Commercial Street and online here.

COMING SOON to selected Offspring stores and online here.
Amsterdam based jeans makers Denham have teamed up with Converse to produce 2 pairs of limited edition Jack Purcell’s. A historic trainer that dates back to the 1930’s, these cotton canvas classics started off on the badminton courts and slowly transcended to the city streets.
The Converse Jack Purcell x Denham sneaker’s classic canvas upper is the perfect textural complement to thoughtfully crafted denim. The clean white midsole is offset by a solid black toe, while the outsole is enhanced by an embossed leather Jack Purcell logo, inspired by the leather patches sewn onto the waistband of a pair of jeans. A contrasting top eyelet brings to mind a pocket rivet; the kind of detailing that draws in a more discerning eye. Denham’s own nod to the famed Jack Purcell toecap is seen on the heel, where their illustrative scissor logo is reconfigured to make the cutting shears “smile.”
The limited Converse Jack Purcell x Denham pack launches on April 11th and will only be available at the Offspring Selfridges London store.
