London, September 5, 2012– Paul Smith X John Lobb footwear are now available! When the quirky British designer announced the collaboration with the British bootmaker back in mid-August, many were eager and some skeptical about how the project would pan out. The result is quite impressive.
Paul Smith X John Lobb has released three special edition shoes which combine the tradition and exceptional quality of a handmade John Lobb shoe with the style, British sense of humour and optimism that Paul Smith is known for. The Westbourne (our favourite), is a classic oxford shoe offered in museum calf with dyed-to-match laces in 4 colours. The Willoughby, a plain vamp derby is offered in 4 colourful cashmere suede options with laces dyed-to-match the soles. Finally, the loafer style Lucca is light and flexible and intended for both indoor and outdoor use. It is available in lightweight full-grained calf suede in five colours.
The Paul Smith & John Lobb collection is available from September 1st in selected Paul Smith and John Lobb shops.
