For each of its new projects, ME.LAND collaborates with artists from the French arts scene. And the VIVACE project, a 100% vegan and recycled sneaker is no exception.
We asked the dancer Andreas Maanli to be the image of the new collection. No question of erasing or appropriating his personality. He posed with his own look to defend the values of our new project.
Andreas starts dancing in Mayotte, where he was born. Arrived in France in 2010, he follows a choreographic journey between Brittany and Paris. He dances in turn for Stromae, Mika or Lenni-Kim. Today he collaborates with Faizal Zeghoudi's company and performs the Faun in Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun in Master class Nijinsky, he was once the God of dance.
Change the world, make it more responsible for the planet, take care of our biodiversity. These are the values our VIVACE project is committed to upholding. For more than a year, we have worked with our Portuguese craftsmen and the SEAQUAL and PETA labels to offer our VIVACE sneakers made from plastic waste found in the oceans and rubber scraps, without any trace of animal material even in the glue! We wanted it to be unisex, beautiful, stylish, urban, timeless, durable and comfortable. Andreas proudly wears our new sneaker with super powers.
VIVACE is available on Ulule for pre-order
