MALKOVICH’S NEW SOLE: John Malkovich, who launched his fashion brand Technobohemian in 2009, has teamed up with Pirelli P Zero to design a shoe capsule collection. The line includes two styles, both featuring Pirelli P Zero’s signature tire-inspired soles and available in denim or in a more sophisticated laser-cut calf version.
The high-top Boholacchino is lined with multicolor fabrics and decorated with rubber details, while Bohosneaker is a sneaker featuring cowhide inserts and an insole with “Technobohemian, by John Malkovich” written on it.

The first collaboration between Pirelli P Zero and Malkovich dates back to 2005, when the American actor appeared with Naomi Campbell in “The Call,” the company’s first short film directed by Antoine Fuqua. The capsule will hit Milan’s Pirelli P Zero flagship this week and a number of selected boutiques worldwide in May with prices ranging from 220 euros, or $288 at current exchange, to 490 euros, or $642.
