When you think of the creative collaboration of John and Paul it’s generally the Beatles that come to mind and not luxury men’s footwear, but in the case of the recent John Lobb Shoe Collection styled Paul Smith there is an equal amount of quirky vibrance and rhythm. Featured here are the Willoughby plain vamp derbys in a luxurious cashmere suede. Available in lush palette of colours such as spring green, ocean blue, regal purple, and sandy grey. The boldness is then subdued by the use of natural laces and sole edges. The collection also includes the Lucca lightweight indoor/outdoor loafer, and a punched toe Oxford also in a range of off-beat pigments.
Originally founded in London in 1866, John Lobb continues its tradition of fine men’s footwear from its Northhampton workshops with bespoke shoe services in its two prestigious ateliers in Paris. If staying at the Connaught Hotel in London, be sure to take advantage of its new 30 minute John Lobb shoe shine service for £30 which also includes reading materials and a drink.
