Matt Bernson and EDUN's Footwear Range Won't Camouflage Your Cool

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Edun, the ethically-sourced clothing line founded by Bono (yeah, that Bono), went through all the trouble of sourcing printed tenting canvas from Kenya for their Spring/Summer 2013 collection, so it wasn't about to let all the extra fabric waste. Thank goodness for NYC-based Matt Bernson and his ever-wearable designs, which Bernson offered up for a cool-on-cool collaboration. Six favorite Matt Bernson styles—from ballet flats to smoking slippers to heeled booties—have been re-imagined with Edun's prints and brushed metal circle pulls made by artisans in the Bombalulu workshop in Kenya. Take a look at the Spring range above and get them for $165 to $235 when March rolls back around.
