John Lobb, the British cobbler owned by Hermès, is on the move, and to underline that fact, the brand kicked off its spring presentation with a hand-drawn animation that featured a dapper gent flitting from Portobello to Shoreditch. The animation was set to music by the Northampton band the Temples, a nod to the location of the Lobb rtw shoe factory.
Among the highlights of the collection were punched wingtip loafers and brogues, and a driving shoe in butter soft gray suede. Bespoke footwear - monk straps, brogues and boots – came in a range of different leathers and color ways, such as suede and leather in a rich plum hue.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
