Celebrating what's a part of our story and future.
We are celebrating our heritage and present the Atelier Men’s Collection 2018, with inspiration drawn from our own archives. In the beginning of the 90’s Vagabond evolved into a true unisex brand. Before that it was all about men’s shoes – men’s fashion expressed through carefully designed lasts, uppers and outsoles. Since our gathered expertise in shoes derived from the making of men’s shoes, we think it is time to celebrate that, and how it’s a part of our story and future.
Vagabond Atelier is an incubator unit and creative laboratory for new products with the purpose to drive new ideas and projects based on design, innovation, sustainability and collaboration.
In the Atelier project extra attention is paid to details, material and to the timeless design. The Atelier Men’s Collection 2018 consists of 21 pieces of boots, shoes and accessories and will initially be available in selected Vagabond Stores, at selected retailers and on vagabond.com from September 26th.

“Simplicity and the focus on material has been very important”
For the Atelier Men’s Collection 2018, Christopher Bastin is the honored source of inspiration. With a great eye for details and a sure instinct of style, his ideas have been infused into the design and prototype team, finding a well discovered and updated version of the Vagabond Men’s Collection 2018.
“Simplicity and the focus on material has been very important, as well as lifting the classic iconic Vagabond-styles. To be able to take part of the knowledge, and the genuine craftmanship that is necessary, was incredibly educational. And to think that all this is existing in Vagabond’s design studio on the Swedish west coast isn’t just unique, but also something that Vagabond should be really proud of!”

Still today this knowledge is kept and refined inhouse.
Ever since the start the know-how has been learnt from the best in the industry. Still today this knowledge is kept and refined inhouse. We are proud to have full-scale mini factory inhouse where our designs can come alive within hours. Our designers work head to head with the technical team, shaping the lasts and the outsoles, choosing the right structure of materials and adding on all the important details. CAD and Illustrator are important tools, but to really get great design, we rely on the pure instinct of our experienced team.
The Collection is exclusively sold in the following stores:
Vagabond Store, Kungsgatan 33, Stockholm
Vagabond Store, Kungsgatan 45, Gothenburg
