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.
Bespoke is a big trend," said Lobb’s chief executive Renaud Paul-Dauphin. "Everyone wants to be different."
"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
