With sneakers now making up 60 percent of turnover, Harrys of London has expanded its trainer category for fall and introduced technogel insoles — for support — into the label's entire collection of formal and casual footwear."Our Harrys guy is a business man who likes to travel," said Steven Newey, chief executive officer. "He's an active man who needs that sort of style for meetings. But at the same time needs comfort and technology and wants something more relaxed. We try to capture three different moments of his life: business, leisure and sports."For the sneaker man, the label launched the Bolt, a tech leather laceless slip-on creation adorned with a lightning-shaped strip of leather on the side. The Mr. Jones Bolt had a similar aesthetic, but with laces, and is also done in suede. The range is available in several combinations of navy, black, white and yellow. It retails for 395 pounds, or $480, and will be sold on the brand's web site and at the Burlington Arcade store.Elsewhere, the brand debuted its H-Cube Logo line, with hardware in the shape of an H, as seen on a classic loafer. The Contemporary London saw launches such as the Gabriel loafer with fringe embellishments, while Joshua — a desert style — was an addition to the boot category. The brand also debuted its Skydive backpack, created in response to client demand.

@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
