A new, season-less unisex collection takes some of the most recognizable Birkenstock styles and elevates them with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. The collection consists of brand-defining styles which include the Arizona, Milano, Madrid, and the Siena sandal.

To commemorate the launch, Birkenstock partnered with artist Amalia Ulman who transformed her work “Dignity” into a photography experience and installation on the Paramount Studios backlot within the art fair.
