The Rima | iconic shoe

The Rima derby leather shoe is a collaboration with Arabic type designer Lara Captan. We called it The Rima with reference to Lebanese singer Rima Khcheich who beautifully transforms classical Arabic to contemporary new sounds.

Lara Captan

For Lara letters embody traces of millennia of gestures, thoughts, and artistic refinement. They are the body of civilizations’ contributions.

As a researcher-practitioner, she strives to provide alternative pathways to designing Arabic typefaces, both in form and technology, in order to drive Arabic type to its utmost potential.



This is a limited edition and part of a numbered series of 107 pairs. The pairs are numbered on the outsole.

Proceeds of the sale of The Rima derby shoes will go for cancer research.

A word

"Lara is a very close friend and committed type face designer, and we’ve always supported each other’s work. This collaboration is very dear to my heart because we discussed it a few weeks after I was diagnosed with breast cancer last November." Kristina
