The boot is cut from Ten c’s signature fabric, OJJ, and takes the form of Diemme’s iconic Roccia Vet style. The collaboration features a timeless fusion of materials and colourways, true to both brand’s DNA. The rugged work boot is available in neutral hues such as chalk, black and Ten c’s military green, perfect for building your seasonal wardrobe.
Ten c is an acronym for the Emperor’s New Clothes, a Danish Folktale that relates to an ethical lesson about vanity – the brand looks beyond trends and focuses on timeless, well-crafted clothing. Designed by Alessandro Pungetti, the brand draws influence from Japanese craftsmanship and pays special attention to Original Japanese Jersey.
For Diemme Brand Director Mats Alver, the collaboration was a quality-focused coming together between two Italian masters of their craft. “We are all product nerds, and while the devil is in the details of design and production, the divine is so often in choosing the right materials. This collaboration highlights both.” He goes on to say “A true Diemme staple, draped in OJJ, in three monochrome colourways, to put emphasis on the material and highlight the iconic design.”
When it comes to Ten c clothing, each piece is made from modular capabilities, allowing for versatility in wear that is designed to last a lifetime. This pairs perfectly with a brand such as Diemme, whose boots are designed with durability in mind, drawing on the tried and tested design aesthetic of classic mountaineering boots.
Enzo Fusco, proprietor of Ten c shared his thoughts on the collection: “We are very proud to present Ten c’s first collaboration with a footwear brand. In Diemme, we found the perfect partner to undertake this project of combining different materials, which has always been one of Ten c’s key strengths.”
