Colourful laces for men

It’s been a while since my last post but today I have decided to untie the knot and start posting again.

So what is more natural to talk about a small familial business which has been florishing in the make of colourful laces since 1920. This French manufacturer offers over ten different shades of laces for menshoes.

They are made and teinted in France and are a real must have to costumise your old shoes or the ones that are worn by the ‘too manies’.

Bodega X Lacoste high end sneakers in limited number

Lacoste has teamed up with Bodega on the Esteban high top sneaker. “ The Esteban comes in muted brown shades, and features a collar lining print reminiscent of traditional American Indian art and textiles. Soft luxurious nubuck uppers feature an embroidered Lacoste croc logo in tone-on-tone light brown and Bodega branding embroidered in the soft leather on the tongue. Each shoe comes with three sets of interchangeable laces.”

Makes me want to travel just by the sound of their description.

Limited to: 250

Andy Warhol’s Ferragamos

You can’t buy these shoes without knowing the story behind them. “But what’s with those specks of paint?”.

Salvatore Ferragamo (1898-1960) designed only one style for men in his lifetime. Andy Warhol owned a pair and, naturally, he painted in them. In 2006, the Ferragamo family bought those paint-specked Warhol shoes at an auction and authorized copies are available at the Ferragamo flagship store on Fifth Avenue in New York.

Keds Collective & Custom service

In 1916, Keds created an American Classic: the first shoe with a soft rubber sole and coined the term “sneaker.”  This original sneaker has still remained a style icon.

Today, you can either custom your own pair or decide to opt for the latest design created in collaboration with some of the most reknown artists and brands around the globe.

Tommy Hilfiger and the Keith Haring foundation launched a line of shoes at Colette this month. They’ll be on sale for two weeks at the Parisian concept store, with a broader release set for the autumn of this year but still in limited editions. Their lovechild consists of sneakers and Wellington boots covered in Haring’s most famous paintings. There are skinny tennis shoes with the Barking Dog and chunky rain boots with the Dancing Man for men, women, and their trendy children.

Louis Vuitton capsule collection by Sofia Coppola

Initially limited to a thousand of bag models, the collection designed by Sofia Coppola in collaboration with Louis Vuitton, has since been edited in a larger number. I think it is still worth spreading the words about it considering that there is only a limited amount of Louis Vuitton bags not carrying the brand famous and almost systematic monograms.
