The Minimalist Luxa

In 2019, Alice + Whittles expanded their footwear selection — creating their first line of sneakers — The Minimalist Luxa Collection. Handmade in Portugal from the scraps of recycled, post-industrial car seat leather, The Minimalist Luxa Collection is refreshingly uncomplicated, yet still capable of turning heads.

With a focus on sustainability, quality, and functional integrity, the team at besu used a thoughtful process to design the packaging with the intention of it being reused and repurposed.

Challenged with creating a compelling brand narrative, the team at besu has developed a significant online presence for Alice + Whittles — collaborating with several social media personalities and brands, leading to the growth of their audience of over 18.7K followers on Instagram.
