Paul Smith & John Lobb
A colourful encounter, where British design and craftsmanship meet.
Designer Paul Smith and bootmaker John Lobb collaborate on three special edition shoes, complementing the tradition, expertise and exceptional quality of a handmade John Lobb shoe with the sense of optimism, humour and mischief that designer Paul Smith is known for.
For act one of this new partnership, Paul Smith brings a punctuation of colour, somewhat a signature of his, to three iconic John Lobb styles:
Westbourne, an oxford, features a punched toe. It is offered in museum calf showing a rich variation in tone and a deep lustre. Westbourne is supplied with dyed-to-match laces and is available in leaf green, lapis blue, iris purple and pebble grey.
Willoughby, a plain vamp derby, is offered in colourful cashmere suede. It has natural laces and sole edges that give a wonderful contrast to the upper leathers. Willoughby is available in spring green, ocean blue, regal purple and sandy grey.
Lucca, a light and flexible loafer, is a shoe for both indoors and outdoors. Lucca comes in lightweight full-grained calf suede, in auburn brown, slate grey, cherry red, ink blue and sea blue.
Westbourne and Willoughby are fitted with shoe trees, stained and waxed in a lighter tone that compliments the hues of the leathers
