Pongrácz x Sir Abner bow espadrilles
GORGEOUS LIMITED-EDITION ESPADRILLES IN BOLD NEW FABRIC
It’s with enormous excitement that we share the 2020 Pongrácz Bold Print of the Year with you with our creative and ever so stylish GALAGO espadrilles.
In collaboration with the talented Sir Abner, the winning print, The Populist, is inspired by the man Desiderius Pongrácz who smuggled vines into South Africa after fleeing uprisings in Hungary, revolutionising South African viticulture. During his lifetime, he challenged and changed the status quo through his visionary ideas that encouraged and dared to be different.
For this design, Sir Abner was inspired by postal art and correspondence art which is a populist artistic movement centred around sending small scale works through the postal service. He created a code through design – EOIC 3ULD – which when folded upwards translates to BOLD, reflecting the pioneering spirit of Desiderius Pongrácz. Sir Abner transformed the military camouflage print which symbolises comradery and bravery, into black and white, and infused the design with the truly South African Shangaan Bag which represents hope, courage and optimism.
In keeping with Sir Abner’s creative synthesising of weaving ideas, design, fashion and street culture into a single vision, we have created these limited-edition GALAGO fashion statement shoes adorned in the 2020 Bold Print of the Year.
