Discover the adrenaline-fuelled backstory of Buro's latest stockist — a Happy Socks collaboration with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

Any social media savvy Millenial will be familiar with this Swedish label's pursuit of happiness. Turning punchy prints and vibrant hues into daily staples, Happy Socks has been purveying the good vibes online (and off) since 2008, all while spreading the cheer through an exuberantly curated presence on Instagram (@happysocksofficial). 

Now take this bouyant philosophy and couple it with vampiric satire — here's when things get interesting. Teaming up with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez for a comedic appropriation of Man vs. Vampire (watch above), Happy Socks has released a jet-black and crimson collection in line with the cinematic caricature.
