OUR SUMMER PICKS A J O U R N A L O F E C C O A N D S C A N D I N A V I A N C U L T U R E OUR SHOES FOR SPRING & SUMMER 2014 In Scandinavia, we tend to be travellers. We like the adventure of being in new places and landscapes, hearing other languages, and figuring out how to get around. It makes us feel extremely alive and it makes us appreciate home even more when we return. Spring and summer is when we do most of our traveling (and, of course, most of our homecomings). So when we designed these shoes, we did so with a sense of roaming the world. These are shoes that feel light and easy to move in and that have a spirit of adventure â€“ in their colours, their textures and their styles. SPRING // SUMMER 2014 1.

For us, ideas can come from anywhere â€” from nature, movies, art and from furniture to architecture to fashion. Our shoes are where our inspirations come to life.

I think these are bright and powerful shoes, characterized by straight clear lines, strong colours, a sense of happiness and a positive outlook to the future. They are like eye candy. After the darker winter times, we feel people want to go out and show themselves — to be visible and proud of who they are. What were some of the inspirations behind the collection? We called our theme “eye candy”, which led to brighter, colourful shoes. We also focused very much on our materials, the texture and feel of the leather itself. Another influence was the complexity of daily life, which we think raises the importance of simplicity and clarity. Rather than greys, beiges and neutral colours, we chose colours that step out more – like “dynasty blue” and “teaberry pink”. It is like candy. The moment you buy it, you choose the taste and the flavour. You know if you're in the mood for lemon or for cherry. Tell us about the feel of the shoes. What can the wearer expect in terms of lightness, flexibility, walkability and so on? It's very much the ECCO feel. Comfort, lightness, flexibility, These designs feel very Scandinavian. Was this the intention? Everything that we do is rooted in Scandinavian culture. Every product carries the essence and spirit of our perspective on life and our values. For us, it's simply natural to combine comfort and function with elegance and style. The landscape, the culture, the history — all these things inspire us every day. They're part of our design language. Which shoes are you most excited about yourself? How do the collection colours fit in with overall trends in fashion? We definitely see an intersection between our sensibility for the collection and the mood we're seeing on catwalks and at fashion shows. It is all about lightness and bold colours. Taking a decision and choosing a position. Right now, there's a strong movement to reflect happiness and positive thinking. People want to make a statement. They want to feel visible and part of a bright future. It's the ”being-proud-of-who-I-am” season. There's a sense of positivity and lightness and being in the moment. A candy feel. I am not the “high heel” person, but if I were, I would instantly fall in love with this season's ECCO Sculptured shoes, which really offer an incredible mix of comfort and style. I am really happy to see the ECCO Jogga with its new colours and new uppers. My particular favourite is the “ECCO Jogga Desert Bootie”. For me, it carries the ECCO spirit and makes a clear statement in terms of colour and design. It brings comfort and style together in a casual way. The sport-inspired outsole is the perfect match for the “Desert Bootie” upper. walkability — this is the “feel” we develop further and further every season. With each collection, we face challenges and strive to improve the experience of our shoes. A big part of every collection is to see every challenge as an opportunity to become more creative and find new solutions. This makes our job exciting.

S H O E S P E O P L E - KAJA BARTEL Designer SPRING // SUMMER 2014 ALL I N A DAY â€™ S WORK B E H I N D T H E S C E N E S The idea behind our Dress Comfort Collection was to design a range of workday shoes for women who lead 'wall-to-wall lifestyles' â€” women who balance the conflicting demands of work and family with grace and style. To showcase the collection and evoke the inspiration behind it, we photographed our model, Louise, during a busy day in and around Copenhagen. DESIGN NEVER SLEEPS 14 8AM We began the shoot in a Copenhagen loft, working with our two models, Louise and Marcus. To break the ice, we started with a pillow fight. 15 SPRING // SUMMER 2014 10AM Same loft, only now we moved to the kitchen so Louise could make breakfast for Marcus. Then, we hit the streets. ALL IN A DAY’S WORK 12PM After taking Marcus to school, we photographed Louise in a local café, where she enjoyed a cappuccino and caught up on work. 17 LOV E , S U C C E S S , WO M E N F R E W H T H E 2PM We took this shot from inside a neighbourhood farmer's market on FĂŚlledvej.

Here, Louise caught up with her friend, Nevena, to enjoy the last part of the afternoon. 20 SPRING // SUMMER 2014 ECCO TOUCH 15 260013-02206 22 ALL IN A DAY’S WORK I N S I G H T S D R E S S I N T O O U R N E W C O M F O R T C O L L E C T I O N W I T H K R I S T I N K Ä P P L I N G E R A N D K R Y S TA L J O N E S Can you tell us why the ECCO Dress Comfort Collection is so special? ECCO Dress Comfort was designed for the kind of women we really admire. We call them the 3-in-1's – because they balance being a mom, being a romantic partner and striving in their professional life. And they do it all with grace and feminine style. The collection is intended to be “easy” to wear. The shoes are versatile, stylish and very comfortable – the most comfortable wear-to-work shoes we make, which is saying something. The details are also very important – the rivets, bows and embossing. It's a very feminine look. In addition, the ECCO Dress Comfort Collection is all leather – the upper and inner lining, all of the elements. Tell us more about the versatility of the collection. ECCO Dress Comfort is for all the things that happen in a woman's day – taking the kids to school, going to the office, the coffee bar, shopping, cinema, drinks in the evening and dinner with friends. What are some of the innovations that make these shoes different? At the heart of the shoes is our direct-injection technology, a different way of shoemaking that lets us make shoes that are very light, supple and shock-absorbing. It's everything that makes an ECCO shoe comfortable, only we've made it extremely sleek and minimalistic, which is what enables us to create the styles. The direct injection also delivers an extremely good fit — with plenty of room for the toes. We've also developed special leathers that are resilient, yet extremely soft and feminine, with a great touch and feel. KRISTIN KÄPPLINGER Vice President Branding Can you describe the feel of the shoes? I think the feel is amazing. Thanks to soft leathers and direct injection, the collection is highly flexible, extremely light with good cushioning and excellent shock-absorption. The walking feel is superb. Is the collection an outcome of ECCO's Scandinavian design philosophy? Absolutely. Applying form follows function to shoemaking means it all starts with the foot. The shoes are shaped anatomically. And the direct-injection technology gives the shoes the flexibility to follow the foot. The decoration is also Scandinavian — essential and stylish - no bling. Again, the leather is specially developed for this category, to make it even better fitting, more feminine and stylish. Do you think you'll wear the shoes yourself? Yes, the ballerina. It's definitely the most comfortable ballerina we've ever made. I love ballerinas but all the ballerinas I like are cemented and not that comfortable. This ballerina is very Scandinavian. Simple, with basic colours that are a no-brainer to match, but also in fresh, fun colours, like teaberry. I plan to wear them to the office and also for casual nights out, with jeans and a jacket. 23 SPRING // SUMMER 2014 You seem excited about this collection. Tell us why. The entire SS14 collection excites me, but especially the new ECCO Touch group. Our company stands for innovating comfort and pushing ourselves to be better and this product is the perfect example of how we do this — and I love how they look. How would you describe the ECCO Dress Comfort concept? The idea is to mix traditional ways of shoemaking with our core technology of direct-injection — the result is an elegant, feminine shoe with a very classic look. We are also using finer and softer leathers that make the shoes extremely comfortable and lightweight – all you really have to do is touch the shoes and you’ll want to wear them all day. How would you describe the kind of women Dress Comfort is designed for? The ECCO Touch is made for busy women with busy lifestyles. The kind of women who demand comfort and quality without compromising style. She wants a classic, feminine looking shoe with fine details that she can wear to the office and then out for dinner that same evening, but that is still comfortable to wear while running errands or dropping her kids off at school. KRYSTAL JONES Product Manager Ladies Branding You've recently moved from Canada – how do you think women back home will like the shoes? Being Canadian, I know this shoe is perfect for the North American market. It's a great wear-to-work product and I really think women there will love the styles. Of course, they will love how soft, lightweight and flexible they are too. Can you walk us through the technology that's in the shoe? The technical foundation of ECCO Touch is a highly refined version of the process that we are known for —direct-injection technology. The soles are injected underneath the uppers, offering a more feminine look. This technology, mixed with hand craftsmanship, offers a truly unique product. We are using remarkably fine leathers, which result in exceptional touch and feel, allowing the shoes to be very soft and flexible. Even the stitching is finer. On the inside, the comfort shank is injected with polyurethane between the sole and the upper, adding even more comfort by creating a shock-absorbing layer for you to walk on. Do you think you'll wear the shoes yourself? I already have a few pairs, but I will definitely own all of the ECCO Touch shoes in the collection. The ECCO Touch 15 ballerina is perfect for weekend getaways and exploring new cities. It’s something you can wear for long periods of time and the classic styling works with almost anything in your closet. I’m wearing these now and I definitely need more colours! The pumps are great for meetings at the office and then wearing out to dinner. The materials are so soft and the shoes are so light that you can really wear these all day and into the night. The sandals are the perfect addition to any summer outfit and can easily be dressed up or down. In what ways do they reflect ECCO's Scandinavian design philosophy? This collection goes right to the roots of Scandinavian design – sleek minimalism, functionality and simplicity. Less is more. This is our design language. To us, “form following function” means the shoes must be comfortable — they must follow the foot. I love all of the small details on the shoes, but most importantly how they feel on the foot. ECCO Touch is a true testament that you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. They make you feel feminine and elegant, but extremely comfortable at the same time. 24 ALL IN A DAY’S WORK L E T Y O U R B A G L I F E E X P R E S S Y O U R The Metallic Shopper ECCO DIVO 9104564-90039 With its edgy, shiny look, this shopper brings style together with function.

SPRING // SUMMER 2014 30 ON THE GO 31 SPRING // SUMMER 2014 C O P E N H A G E N : T H E C I T Y O F C Y C L I S T S Bicycles play a vital role in Copenhagener's everyday lives, while contributing a huge portion of the cityâ€™s visual appearance with more than 390 kilometres of designated bike lanes. When coming to Copenhagen, you will see bicycles parked at every station and in every street. Every day 36% of the cityâ€™s citizens commute to work, school or university by bike. In fact, more people commute by bicycle in greater Copenhagen than cycle to work in the entire United States (even though the US has almost 57 times the population of Copenhagen). The bicycle offers a more affordable and eco-friendly way of getting around, and it is estimated that the number of people commuting by bike in Copenhagen will rise to 50% by 2015. Here, you'll find every kind of person riding to work on their bike, from lawyers to construction workers, stock brokers to fashion editors. 32 ON THE GO SPRING // SUMMER 2014 K E Y T H E P O I N T S O N M E N ’ S F O R M A L C O L L E C T I O N WITH JACOB AXELSEN ECCO BIRMINGHAM 631004-01001 ECCO CAIRO 631604-01001 ECCO DACONO 660614-01001 36 ON THE GO JACOB AXELSEN Division Manager Menâ€™s Branding Tell us about the ECCO Men's Formal Collection. The motivation is to always work with contemporary silhouettes, while making the shoes look even slimmer and more minimalist. Interestingly, much of our design efforts have been about adapting our sophisticated direct-injection technology to look more like traditional cemented shoes. This mix of timeless shape and simplicity definitely reflects our Scandinavian perspective. How would you describe ECCO's approach to a business shoe in terms of walkability, fit and feel? Name three things you love about these shoes that set them apart from other men's formal shoes. One, the combination of exceptional comfort with superb style. The shoes are high-end in appearance, yet the feel is light and athletic. We are conscious that men wear these shoes all day long and frequently into the night, so comfort is critical. Our directinjection technology makes our shoes lighter, more flexible and more durable. It's the same technology we use in our casual shoes. As a result, our business shoes feel almost like walking shoes. Two, the diversity. We have a wide range of options from more formal to more casual expressions. Can you talk about different ways men might wear these shoes? For example, with suits and also more casual clothes. Three, the leather is of excellent quality and very supple. ECCO is unique in that we craft our own leathers and that skill set really shines in our Men's Formal shoes. In general, men are taking more and more freedom with how they express themselves. Increasingly, we are seeing men wear our dress casual shoes in different, interesting ways, including with more formal work attire. What's your personal favourite from the collection? Right now, Iâ€™m wearing ECCO Contoured. It's sort of a hybrid shoe, combining a casual running-inspired outsole with a very clean formal upper. It's been one of our best-selling shoes around the world and for this season, we're giving it an even more interesting, funky colour palette. I love it. 37 SPRING // SUMMER 2014 K A P S E L D E S I G N E D I N 1 4 S C A N D I N AV I A . I N I T A L Y. C R A F T E D As a company that's all about shoemaking, it only makes sense for us to craft our own leathers, which we do. In fact, our leathers are so highly regarded, we are regularly asked to supply leather for some of the world's leading craft and luxury brands. integrating Scandinavian design principles with Italian craftsmanship. Working with our picks of the latest ECCO leathers, our designers have created a line of purist, minimalist bags, all incorporating the same iconic hardware.

The new men's products are very exciting. One of my favourites is the ECCO Denio Messenger bag. Its clean modern lines showcase the natural beauty of the ECCO leather. It's a true expression of Scandinavian design. The Small Leather Goods Collection is also very special. We've created a family of wallets, belts and small accessories that start the summer off in the right mood. You'll see wonderful leathers and appealing bright colours. SARA ROSINA Designer What are some of the inspirations behind the collection? Ideas are sparked from everything – it is a result of learning and evolution / past and future. But our biggest inspiration is the leather itself. Every piece of leather has its own qualities and emotion. How does the collection express ECCO's Scandinavian design orientation? For us, form follows function. We always say, “Your life is in your bag”. We ask how the organization of a bag can make Describe some of your favourite leathers for the season. For me, there are two leathers in particular that I'm really excited about. How does the collection fit in with other trends you see in bags The first is Scuba, which is an embossed leather that combines a matte surface with bright colours, creating a super fresh, modern look. This leather is a feature of our ECCO Dalaman bags. and overall fashion? Our product history comes from a combination of fashion trends, leather trends and consumer needs. someone's life easier. Our bags are designed to make the complications of life simpler and more relaxed. The second is Toro. It's a leather that lives and ages with you. It has a slightly oiled surface and a natural handcrafted feeling, which gives the bags a masculine and structured look. I especially love this in a deep rust colour. The ECCO Denio Messenger bag is made from Toro. Even if we're working in the context of current movements in fashion, our products stand out. Everything we do is filtered through our fusion of Scandinavian design and high-end leather craft. It's genuinely unique. We do not necessarily follow all trends present in the market. Are there any themes or stories that run through the collection? We worked with three themes. “Eye Candy”, which is playful with bright poppy colours. It feels very active and optimistic. However, I can recognize that some of the things that have inspired us, like the dull leather surfaces, the bright yellow colour story or the retro sci-fi, metallic shades, seem to have inspired other designers as well. Then there's “Classic Beat”, designed around more elegant shapes and black and white imagery inspired by the beat movement of the 60's. For example, the matte black and white look of our ECCO Delight bags, as well as eye catching metallic leathers, are also showing up in the collections of other luxury brands. Our “Exposed” theme is more rugged and rougher, characterized by natural tones, metallic shades and distressed textures. It's more nature-inspired. 47 SPRING // SUMMER 2014 48 S CA N D I N AV I A N I S F O R A B O U T T H E A N D D E S I G N O F J OY S I M P L I C I T Y P U R P O S E P L E A S U R E .

VIMMERBY SWEDEN - D ouglas E mil N ielsen ECCO ECCO DIKSON 9104522-90092 “For our holiday, we “unplugged” in Vimmerby. Instead of movies, computers, and shopping, it was all about swimming, reading and relaxing in this medieval village. As this was the hometown of Astrid Lindgren, writer of children's books like Pippi Longstocking, we also took our kids to Astrid Lindgren's World, an amusement park that brings her books to life. Our visit there inspired lots of storytelling and imagination games. Some of my most enduring childhood memories are from my own family holidays. I think my children's magical memories will come from here.” Bag: ECCO DIKSON Overnighter. Timeless and perfectly modern, it's the only bag you need for a short trip and also the ideal accessory for a longer time away. 50 UMEÅ SWEDEN - ELIN JONSSON House of Communication A/S “On the coast in northern Sweden, Umeå is where I grew up. I come back for two weeks every summer. It is a place where I relax and regain energy. My family has a red wooden house by the water where you can pick wild blueberries, go fishing off the dock, take a walk in the forest or boat for a picnic on one of the many close-by islands. It's never boring here. The house is always filled with guests and my mother makes the most fantastic food. Since it's so far north, the days are long and the sun hardly ever sets. During the late hours, I like to sit and enjoy the sounds of the fire in the sauna and cool down afterwards with a dip in the water. There is no better place for me than that red wooden house in Sweden.” Bag: ECCO DALAMAN Tote Shopper.

SPRING // SUMMER 2014 E C C O T H I S L E A T H E R A N D S E A S O N ’ S C O L O U R S WITH ANNE BERNECKER Why is leather quality important to the fit and comfort of an ECCO shoe? As a natural product, leather evolves and changes with age. High quality, soft leather actually adapts to the shape of the foot. It's not just for appearance, it adds to fit and comfort. As part of your job, you do a lot of work with colour. Can you talk to us about the colours for this season? For SS14, we're working with a fairly bright colour palette, with lots of strong accents. With the economy still in recession, we want to brighten people's mood with colours that pop. Can you tell us about some of the textures and finishes we'll see? We've focused on natural finishes that really bring out the beauty of the leather. In terms of texture, you'll see lots of super soft nubuck. You'll also see nature-inspired textures with ANNE BERNECKER Trend and Colour Consultant ECCO is the rare shoe company that also makes its own leather. Can you tell us about some of the types of leather featured this season? The leather we use for each shoe is very much driven by its use. So for ECCO Men’s Formal we tend to use traditional firm leather with a super smooth surface and high shine — this kind of leather holds shape beautifully. strong pebble or structure in concert with bright colours for a very fresh look.
