Bentley Motors announced its collaboration with leading force in the customised shoe industry, Dominic Ciambrone, known as The Surgeon, to create a limited-edition line of Bentley-inspired sneakers, reserved by Mulliner clients and collectors. The collaboration brings together two icons of design, each known for their own blend of craftsmanship and unparalleled style, to create exceptional and unique fashion pieces. Bentley will unveil the 1-of-1 Bentley x The Surgeon vehicle next month during design week at Art Basel Miami to illustrate the collaboration. Alongside the car, one buyer will receive a matching pair of 1-of-1 sneakers – the ‘Bentley x The Surgeon adidas Forum Low.’ Interested parties should enquire at their local US dealers for purchase information.
A self-taught creative and maker, Dominic’s craftsmanship skills and design sensibilities focus on the ability to combine high fashion with street culture. Blend these two worlds, he has successfully pioneered a unique shoe category. Similar to Bentley’s ability to merge sustainability and innovation, Dominic famously reimagines and fuses sneakers with ultra-premium materials, creating his own inimitable style.
The Bentley x The Surgeon collaboration began in early 2022 when Dominic visited the Bentley campus in Crewe to immerse himself in the luxury British brand and explore the variety of materials, finishes and bespoke elements used throughout the creation of each and every Bentley. He tapped into the coachbuilding division of the brand, Bentley Mulliner, to bring additional creative details and bespoke elements to his designs, with exquisite direction.
