KARHU x Moomin.
Created by author and illustrator Tove Jansson in 1945, the Moomins are a family of carefree, adventurous trolls from the Finnish storybook series of the same name. In the seventy years since their creation, the Moomins have inspired countless comic books, animated series, art installations, theme parks and, with a little help from KARHU, footwear collaborations.
These collaborations are inspired by Moominvalley characters, colors and fonts.
For this version, the KARHU design team was directly influenced by the story of Moominpappa at sea. The Fusion 2.0 “India Ink / Chambray Blue” is made of micro perforated suede and ballistic nylon and dressed in tones that evoke the Moomins’ journey to find a new home at sea. It features touches of red, inspired by the Moomintroll scarf, and vibrant geometric patterns that highlight the colors of Moominvalley.
