In a bold move to reimagine its most popular styles, Skechers, The Comfort Technology Company™, has partnered with Los Angeles-based visual artist, muralist, and designer Jen Stark. This collaboration marks the launch of the brand’s Visual Artist Series, a project set to spotlight the unique designs of various artists on Skechers products through 2024.
The new Skechers x Jen Stark capsule collection features both colorful and monochromatic renditions of Stark’s signature hypnotic drip designs on several women’s silhouettes. Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating, “Through our new Visual Artist Series, we offer consumers unique wearable art that can transform our product in the way that only art can—and Jen Stark’s the perfect visionary to introduce this new collection.”
Stark, known for her intricate works of art that often mirror patterns found in nature, has brought her vibrant patterns to life in this collection. As an LA local, she has been actively involved in the execution of this collaboration, visiting the Skechers office multiple times to contribute to the creation of these captivating styles.
“I’m excited for the world to step into my psychedelic kicks,” said Stark. “It’s been a joy to re-envision my most personal designs through this wonderful new collection with the Skechers team—and I look forward to introducing our creations to everyone who loves to wear and share the beauty of art.”
Stark’s diverse body of work spans murals, sculptures, animations, and psychedelic drip patterns. She has explored a variety of media for her pieces, including wood, paint, mirrors, metal, and interactive installations. Her work is included in the collections of prestigious institutions such as the Smithsonian American Art Museum, West Collection, and MOCA Miami, and has been showcased in major exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Thailand, and Canada.
The limited-edition Skechers x Jen Stark capsule, featuring three unique styles, is now available for purchase at Skechers.com, Skechers retail stores, and leading partners in the U.S. and select global markets. This collaboration not only offers consumers a unique blend of art and fashion but also sets the stage for future artist collaborations under the Visual Artist Series.
