While other fashion brands are busy collaborating with renowned rappers, singers, and everyone else in between, Timberland decided to go down the munificent route as part of their project, Serv-A-Palooza, and contribute to the community by teaming up with the less-spoken for – students with special needs, namely autism. Timberland is working with The Art Faculty by Pathlight to focus on their Artist Development Programme (ADP) which targets scouting, discovering and developing students to emerge as promising artists.
This philanthropic collection features pouches and drawstring bags designed by the students of Pathlight School by integrating Timberland’s star product, the Classic Boat Shoe’s aesthetics with their very own twist. The repetitive design of the silhouette and sole of the boots are the brainchild of Grace Ong. Using pastels hues, she reflects her love of everything sweet. Joshua, on the other hand, looks past the exterior and translates his admiration for Godzilla for his design.
This second collaboration further solidifies Timberland’s name as an altruistic fashion leader, while also garnering more attention for Pathlight School. That is what I call hitting two birds with one stone!
The collection is available now at Timberland Raffles City, Vivocity, 313@somerset, Bugis+, Takashimaya and Westgate. The drawstring bag is priced at $39 while the pouch at $29. Full net proceeds will go to the Autism Resource Centre (Singapore) and Pathlight School’s parent charity.
