When The Selby‘s photo-tour of Lucas Ossendrijver/Lanvin Homme’s studio in Paris went online I had a bit of a Zoe moment and…died, so to speak. From emerald green velvet satin-bow oxfords (undoubtedly the epitome of lighthearted dandy elegance) to pearl-beaded satin, suede and leather hi-tops the shots went some way in whetting my footwear-appetite.
Thus, in a similar vein to countless other shoe-porn posts, my selection of clogs to covet right now…
Grenson ‘Oscar’ Blue Suede Boots. Spot on for the offbeat/odd golf-attire-inspired/collegiate looks I’ve been formulating mentally for a while now…
Comme des Garcons Leather/Suede lace-ups. Suede alone (excepting the stellar blue boots above) I’m not an avid fan of, looks too utilitarian/outdoorsy. Paired with brogue-detailed leather, however, and it’s redeemed from Regatta territory.
Lanvin double-whammy, aforementioned oxfords and hi-tops.
Mjolk ‘Hackney Road’. Another leather/suede hybrid, but this time ’round with perforation. Miuccia would be proud.
I’ve longed for a pair of plainish, sturdy and really lacquered-looking black boots for a lengthy period of time now and finally, Mr. Hare‘s Kerouac has answered the call. There’s something about literary references and shoes put together that’s all too irresistable.
