Gieves & Hawkes release images from their Spring Summer 2010 collection. Featuring brogues, Chelsea boots, loafers, and more, this is a beautiful collection from one of Saville Row’s finest residents. Retailing at £295, the price-tag is high, but well worth it as an investment.
Although stylish across the board, the Spring/Summer 2010 collection from Oliver Sweeney is divided into two focused groups: “London,” and “Goodyear Welted.” The former is the more contemporary of the two, characterized by washed soles and elegant shapes; the latter refers to a time honored construction method characterized by excellent ventilation and strength. Available for purchase at Oliver Sweeney.
Yuketen gives us a look in to these beautifully crafted beef-roll loafer’s, apart of its Yuketen 2010 Spring/Summer Collection Country. The stand out feature on these must be the very glossy dark brown leather surface used. Also, the wonderful detailing visible along the sides as well as the stitching and the crepe sole make this shoe a casual footwear masterpiece. Available at Inventory Stockroom.
Band of Outsiders teams up with the perennial Sperry Top-Sider for yet another beautiful collection. Full of suedes and canvas’ (with one black pair or suede/leather boat shoes), the collection is sure to go quick. We see a new pair of penny loafers, with the very classic “penny slip” on the tongue. Personally, my favorite are the seersucker boat shoes; simply beautiful. Now, if you want to buy a pair (which you need to, because it is crucial for your Spring/Summer look) head over to Tres Bien Shop and grab one.
A new take on an old classic, Neil Barrett presents his “High Top Dress Shoe” for Spring/Summer 2010. Oddly enough, these really aren’t “dress shoes”, just more like a classy, causal sneaker you can dress up in a blazer, flat front chinos, trousers, etc. A vulcanised sole, desert boot panels, all drapped in light beige/gray suede and a leather toe; classy may be an understatement. Purchase yours now at The Corner.
In the accessories section of Jil Sander’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection; you’ll find some beautifully crafted simple and subtle laced derbies. These will come in colors of a quaint creme, white, black, and light gray. Each one is built on the same wood grain looking sole (minus the black ones, they come on a black sole), so if you step out of the house in these; I’m damn sure you’ll turn some heads.
visvim gives us a quick preview of their new footwear releases for Spring/Summer 2010. First for the men, we see a pair of smooth; almost patent leather looking strapped low-tops called the “Foley Lo-Folk”. While you look down at these boys, you’ll see the sweet black leather and clean white sole. Then, there is a pair of of heeled, light brown boots; called the “Clara Boots”. They have a very western vibe to them, the thick stitching gives of that cowboy boot look. Both models released on Friday (February 5th), so go on the new (or to a boutique) and find yours today.
Being unorthodox in fashion, can truly also mean being an innovator. Spring/Summer 2010 is coming up, and the competition for revolutionary footwear is heated; I can honestly say Givenchy’s footwear for the season is battling for the top spot in creativity. The sneakers come in a low-top cut right below the ankle, and a super high-top that runs all the way to the middle of your shin. The sneakers come in the regular white and black leather colorway, but also in a very vibrant metallic gold patent leather colorway; that you won’t see from other designers. The other interesting thing on these sneakers is the mid-foot straps, and void in material on the super high-tops; not to mention a very stylish gum sole. These may not be for everyone, but if you do rock these; you will easily stand out in a crowd.
The brand that we all know and love gives us a sneak peek into what the Spring/Summer of 2010 will hold. Maison Martin Margiela, the iconic brand, unveils two of their new sneakers for the S/S season (the velcro triple strapped sneaker is a previous shoe, just in a new colorway). First, we find ourselves looking at a forest green and gumsole, velcro triple strap trainer; this pair is one of my favorites the brand has ever made. But what really catches your eye, is a pair of low top sneakers doused in paint, and chipped to give off that iconic deconstructed fashion look we have come accustomed to seeing from Martin Margiela and his team (well, now since Margiela left; we are used to seeing from his team). Check out more images of the preview after the jump.
