The CUAP x S.T. VALENTIN loafer pays tribute to history. Sergei has found inspiration in classic designs from the 50's and 60's - for example the painter Cy Twombly standing in worn out loafers on the cover of Vogue in 1966. The inspiration is mixed with his own interpretation of the loafer as an extension of the home slipper: easy to put on and take off on the go. In every pair of CUAP x S.T. VALENTIN loafers you’ll find sole shaped collage works. Ready for you to take out and frame on your wall as an unique and original artwork. Just as limited as the loafers. This leads to an iconic piece that you can proudly wear - no matter if you’re a modern classicist or a rock’n’roller to the bone. This is our aesthetic homage to history. And a story that is now yours to tell.

Inspired by Ivy League

The inspiration for the CUAP knit goes back to the traditional "Ivy League Universitiy" sweatshirts from the 1960s, where the students wore their respective graduation years which were embroidered on the front. The reference is elegant and timeless and after all these years still modern and current. The cotton quality has been changed to merino wool from Italian Baruffa and the figures have been changed to 6 hour hand embroidered 'CUAP', however still with a clear reference to the original.
