LONDON — Alvaro Gonzalez, the Spanish accessories designer who has built a career working for brands including Valentino, Loewe, Tod’s, Jimmy Choo and most recently Stuart Weitzman’s SW1, is launching a namesake collection.
Alvaro is a small men’s collection of calf leather sandals with straps dip-dyed in a palette that includes eggplant, deep sea blue and dark green. There are also leather belts and crocodile eyewear cases in similarly rich shades, made in workshops around Florence.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
