East Coast and yacht club staple Sperry Top-Sider is teaming up with L.A.’s Gray Malin for a special capsule collection that combines the artist’s iconic beach photos and Sperry’s iconic shoes for a summer-ready collab that will have preppy fans of the brand and art aficionados celebrating in equal measure.

“Over the past few years I have taken behind-the-scene images of my Sperry shoes dangling from the side of helicopters during my aerial shoots,” says Malin. “Ultimately, this inspired me to reach out to Sperry to bring my images to the classic shoes from this iconic American brand I love so much.”

The capsule collection includes the artist’s shots from beaches in Lisbon, Portugal (the colorful umbrella print); Cefalù, Sicily (rendered in chic black and white) and Cape Town, South Africa (the cool, teal and white option) on iconic styles such as the brand’s boat shoes and slip-on sneakers. Malin’s signature overhead shots — taken from a helicopter — include waves, sunbathers and umbrellas and even a vintage-inspired black and white coastal print. The collection features four of Malin’s shots available on three Sperry Top-Sider styles. The shoes range from $77 to $85 and will be available next week at select Sperry Top-Sider locations and boutiques such as Colette in Paris.

This isn’t the first round of collabs for Sperry. The shoe brand had a long-running relationship with L.A.-based Band of Outsiders as well as New York-based contemporary fashion label Milly.
