If you thought Demna Gvasalia’s tongue-in-cheek design methodology couldn’t go any further, you might have been mistaken. From “overpriced” birthday-themed hoodies to USB-C necklaces, the designer’s streetwear-meets-luxury imprint Vetements has always had a knack for flippantly examining much of today’s consumerist-centric buying culture. Now the brand has returned with a pair of slippers and a backpack that emulate everybody’s favorite childhood friend, a plush teddy bear.
The Beige Teddy Bear Slippers feature a resin bear around the toe and have been constructed from wool and mohair material. In a similar fashion, the backpack opts for a full faux-fur bear, utilizing canvas panel detailing on the rear for the bag portion, rounding off the piece with adjustable padded webbing shoulder straps.
You can take a look at both pieces in the gallery above, and if you’re interested in picking up either for yourself, head over to SSENSE’s webstore where the slippers and backpack are retailing for $620 USD and $1250 USD, respectively.
