A series of interpretations of original heritage
Conceived as a showcase for special projects and inspired by its founding year, 1774 is BIRKENSTOCK’s new venture into luxury. Its newly opened global office in Paris functions as an incubator for developing innovation and new partnerships. Located in the heart of fashion, the Rue Saint Honoré, it is designed by London based studio Vinson & Co to showcase BIRKENSTOCK’s unique collaborations with fashion’s brightest minds.


“Arriving in Paris with a global office is an important step for BIRKENSTOCK, its where creativity and culture meets exceptional talent.”

Oliver Reichert, CEO BIRKENSTOCK

“Basically, BIRKENSTOCKs are like jeans, functional and sexy. Maybe BIRKENSTOCK are even the sexiest shoes ever.“

“I chose to make this collaboration with BIRKENSTOCK for the same reason people choose BIRKENSTOCK every day. No matter what you wear, who you are, no matter your gender or social background, no matter your age, your style, no matter if you care about fashion or if you do now, BIRKENSTOCK has its own universal language. I loved the idea of approaching the DNA of our Maison, represented by the individual and intimate world of Couture with something that is so free and adaptable. To me, this is the definition of inclusivity.“

Pierpaolo Piccioli, Creative Director Maison Valentino

“BIRKENSTOCK for me is a way of thinking, similar to mine and to our hotels. Less is more. It’s not about trends and seasons it’s about timeless quality. I wear BIRKENSTOCK all the time in the summer, but I need a more elegent version of the shoe that could be worn day and night with elevated materials such as raffia, silk etc. My dream has been to design a BIRKENSTOCK with these characteristics that reflect our hotel style and it’s come true!“

Marie-Louise Sciò, CEO and Creative Director of Pellicano Hotels Group
