  • ARTFUL JEWEL SHOE COLLECTION

    Discover the selection from this Summer 2015 shoe collection, shot by Roe Ethridge.

    This season, the inspirations ranged from graphic shapes and shiny accessories for trendy looks, to subtle work on natural materials and fabrics for more of a relaxed style.

    The Flat Loafer is a revamp of the iconic Oxford loafer, declined in a rich version thanks to the amazing patchwork of sequins and jewel-like beads on the upper part of the shoe. We find a similar patchwork of jewels on the Sneakers Boots as well as the Sandal with its heel inspired from the FW14 Show.

    New York based photographer Roe Ethridge captured the essence of this collection through the prism of the Artful Jewel theme.

This service, called Haute Maroquinerie proposes leather goods in an array of shapes, materials, colors, linings and finishings: the selection is so varied that each handbag is certain to be unique.

    Hand-painted initials and motifs are also available for hard-sided luggage, while hot stamping is possible for selected pieces and small leather accessories. Tailoring, the new men’s permanent collection for business and travel, as well as made-to-order shoes and belts round out the store’s personalised offer.
