Funky FOUR: yellow and orange checks on black
The new Funky FOUR brings music to your wardrobe. They inject some rhythm and set the pace of your outfit. Funky FOUR is smooth (not ribbed), but definitely not boring, and was developed in conjunction with Philipp Fankhauser.
- Modern, funky design
- Only genuine with guitar on heel
- Limited edition
- High-quality mercerised cotton
If your wardrobe were a band, your socks would play the drums. They set the rhythm. They hold the band together. Everything is geared to them. Funk is rhythm. Funky socks set your rhythm. Step to the beat.
Philipp Fankhauser's Funky Socks make your outfit resound. Play music with every step. Experience music in your toes.
Philipp Fankhauser has been on the concert stage for thirty years. At first this was always in white socks, then in black. This finally changed in 2012 when Philipp opted for colourful, flashy and funky socks.
And so I came into play in 2014: together with BLACKSOCKS, Philipp launched the first models in the ‘Funky Socks’ collection, where I stand as number one and have been setting the beat ever since.
I make regular appearances on the world’s great concert stages and give Philipp’s outfit the colour it needs. I also set his toes tapping.
My latest appearances:
31 July 2014, Mühlehof in Trub (Switzerland)
14 August 2014, Hotel Giardino, Ascona (Switzerland)
10 December 2014, Bierhübeli, Bern (Switzerland)
We Funky Socks are unique and only available in limited numbers. Once we have sold out, we will not be produced again. However, you don’t have to worry: additional models with new designs will regularly be launched, all at the same high level of quality.
I come from a small sock manufacturer in northeast Milan, which makes me Italian. They create high-quality socks such as me with a great passion for detail. Three siblings are running the business in second generation ensuring that lots of socks turn out as good as me.
Top-quality materials and meticulous workmanship are my hallmarks. I am delicate, but also durable and opaque thanks to reinforcement in the heel and toe areas. I am made from 50% mercerised cotton which gives me my silky, wash-resistant shine and makes me very comfortable to wear. 47% polyamide and 3% LYCRA® make me durable.
I am good for you and your skin: This is borne out by the ‘Oeko-Tex® Standard 100’ I am entitled to bear.
This standard guarantees that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested. Ultimately, I spend all day worn next to your skin in a damp, warm climate, which requires a certain level of care.
