Unique collaboration sees the launch of limited-edition bespoke sneakers


December 8, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

Customised shoemaker ‘The Surgeon’ collaborated with Bentley Motors on a multi-faceted project to create limited-edition, bespoke Bentley-inspired sneakers.

The collaboration brought together two icons of design – Dominic Ciambrone known as The Surgeon and Bentley – each known for their own blend of craftsmanship and unparalleled style to create unique fashion pieces. Bentley will unveil the 1-of-1 Bentley x The Surgeon vehicle next month during design week at Art Basel Miami to illustrate the collaboration.

The Bentley x The Surgeon collaboration began in early 2022 when Ciambrone visited the Bentley campus in Crewe to immerse himself in the luxury British brand and explore the variety of materials, finishes and bespoke elements used throughout the creation of each Bentley. He tapped into the coachbuilding division of the brand, Bentley Mulliner, to bring additional creative details and bespoke elements to his designs, with exquisite direction.

Each pair of the limited-edition, handcrafted sneakers boasts unique facets, including Bentley’s signature diamond quilting, the cross-stitching found on the steering wheel and premium hides identical to those used to trim Bentley’s unrivalled interior designs. These beautiful elements combine with The Surgeon’s signature aesthetic and skull-and-scalpel monogram.

“This is a very special time for The Surgeon brand and to showcase our creativity in a new light, collaborating with Bentley. The Bentley brand is at the top of its craft and represents luxury and craftsmanship at the highest level as we do – it’s very exciting to partner with them and bring these visions to life,” Ciambrone stated.

“Creativity and bespoke design are consistently woven into our DNA and have been since 1919, especially with our private coachbuilding Mulliner division. Connecting and producing with a likeminded creative like The Surgeon is not only rewarding but also exciting to watch as we support the next generation of diverse craftspeople who share similar brand values,” added Christophe Georges, President & CEO, Bentley Americas.
