BEHIND THE COLLECTION

Drawing from John Lobb’s rich archive of bespoke Women’s shoes and boots, a ready-to-wear collection launches for Autumn | Winter 2017.

Six styles highlight the house’s unique bootmaking skills through hand-wheeled soles, decorative nail heel patterns and expansive wholecut leathers. The purity and heritage of modernity present in the archives leads to styles which combine a modern intellectual elegance with comfort and functionality.

Utilitarian details such as straps, buckles and elastics on boots speak of the heritage of sportswear and horse-riding present within the house, whilst the signature sloping heel elevates the silhouette.

Womens

Suedes are contrasted with the distinctive Courchevel calf, whilst traditional Highland walking shoes are rendered on a lizard and full calf Ghillie with a full saddle. The John Lobb russet colour, intrinsic to the house since its foundation, features in cotton drill tabs and contrasting side panels on a reverse jodhpur boot. The diamond motif, usually cross-hatched on bespoke soles, is here imagined within interiors, allowing its singular mark to be felt at every step.
