After the Pensole x GM Masterclass, my friend Steve and I got together again to create 3 color collections of 4 new silhouettes for NOBULL, using TLC materials. The colors are inspired by Filipino culture, the materials are innovative and bio-based by TLC, and the designs are for athletics that are an opportunity for NOBULL.
For more of the footwear design and ideation sketches, check out Steve's portfolio (https://stevenburstyn.com/nobull-x-tlc).
Uni Color Story
Uni Moodboard + Color Palette
Uni is the fleshy part of the sea urchin, it's a delicacy in most Asian countries. The juxtaposition of the deep purple exterior and orange interior was fascinating to me and inspired this color story.
Coral Reef Color Story
Coral Reef Moodboard + Color Palette
The Philippines have the 3rd biggest coral reef in the world. I wanted to honor how beautiful and important this ecosystem is by using a color palette inspired by its hues.
Halo-Halo Color Story
Halo-Halo Moodboard + Color Palette
An popular dessert in Filipino culture is Halo-Halo, known for its unique taste and vibrant colors. That, and the comforting, nostalgic feeling that it gives Katrina Soriano is the inspiration for this color story.
