BRAND - Fashion Trends for Men and Women
The Flower MOUNTAIN brand is inspired by creative ideas, the cycles of nature according to the rhythms of the natural world.
Flower Mountain originated from a meeting between Mr. Keisuke Ota from Tokyo and Mr. Yang Chao from Beijing, who discovered that they had a common passion for mountain trekking, music and quite obviously, footwear.
They became firm friends and ecided to take a trip to the Mount Fuji Fuji Rock Festival” where they came up with the idea of designing a functional and attractive shoe called Flower MOUNTAIN .
In 2015 they first founded, together with Federica Wang, the Dandelion mountaineering association and later Breath Design co. Ltd Tokyo. They then started designing their first shoe collection.
Shoes Bar Beijing and HPF in Tokyo immediately embraced the project and the public responded enthusiastically. In 2016 the Breath Design team joined forces with ShoesBar and the Italian company Falc S.p.A (joint stock company), taking Flower MOUNTAIN to a whole new level and introducing the brand on international markets.
The new team can rightfully claim to have the most advanced technical and production know-how on the market, based on Italian tradition as well as numerous marketing specialists and a widespread international distribution network.
