Spring 2017 Preview

Posted on March 08, 2017 by Justin Rhodes

Yikes...a new season is upon us, it never ceases to come around before you know what has happened.
Still, new arrivals get us all excited and the satisfaction of seeing all of those sketches and doodles come to life never ceases.
We're busy working on putting all the new styles online but wanted to showcase a few new themes that form the core of this new collection...
Mock Hornback Croc - This texture of leather appeared in our very first collection back in 2004...and we then quietly phased it out a few years ago. This season it felt like the time was right to bring it back - we love the extreme definition of the texture and the deep tonal veins and think it can be a really defining piece for any outfit. Comes in Chalk, Midnight and Turquoise (photo below)
Nubuck...It's been a couple of years since we first reintroduced Nubuck and this season we expand further with this wonderfully versatile leather. It lends itself so well to neutral toned clothing and is timelessly classy. We have expanded our neutral colour palette to include Chalk, Pebble, Mole, Mid Tan, Black...and for a bit of seasonal fun added Turq!
Ultra Smooth Vegetable Tan...This leather is one we have been quietly trialling for a year or so and this season it arrives properly in elegant classic tones of Cognac, Bitter Choc, Honey and Black. The leather has all the wonderful pull up properties of vegetable tanned leather but is ultra smooth and buttery soft for those occasions when you need a discreet but hard wearing belt that is sleek but interesting too.
Performance Belts...Many of you have seen over the last year our first foray into what we term Performance Belts. This season we continue with new materials that showcase two tone weave effects, the perfect companion to casual sportswear, acitvewear or to match up with trainers.
Pony Hair...We have been in love with Pony Hair (hair on cowhide) for years...and finally we can see that it is really gaining traction as an alternative to normal leather. This season we are unveiling some experimental burn out styles in Blue and Khaki, essentially an acid wash effect. Really cool and funky...
