Ethnic Pattern Mix
If you’re acquainted with Our Legacy’s latest creations you’ve certainly recognized this Ethnic Arrow Shirt from their AW11 collection. Although it’s most definitely one of their strongest pieces to date, it’s also a challenge to mix and match, due to the tablecloth fabric and iconic print. Here I used it as an overshirt and inverted the usual layering order, throwing a solid v-neck cashmere sweater underneath it. Keeping up the patterned theme, the fair isle socks add an amazing twist to the whole look, imbuing the slate grey creased trousers with a new found life.

Just snatched a pair of “vintage” boat shoes by Buttero from my friend Telmo. They were part of the 2007 collection and are absolutely gorgeous. Quoting my friends over at Spot, “one man’s garbage is another man’s gold”…indeed. Pics coming soon…
Tuscan brand Buttero’s SS collection has been earning some much deserved praise on the web. Aimed at delivering high-end quality footwear, this season’s focus is on their trademark vegetable tanned leathers, original recycled rubber soles and refreshing leather detailing and embellishments. From low and mid top sneakers, to boat shoes and chukkas, there’s something for everyone.
I got a chance to get hands on with some of their models over at Por Vocação and I’ve got to say these guys never cease to amaze me…
Armando Cabral SS11
A while back, Wrong Weather hosted an event to commemorate the arrival of their new footwear brand: Armando Cabral. Although I was unable to attend the inauguration, I had a chance to drop by later on and get a glimpse of the newly arrived models.
Making its international debut this season (SS11), the shoe brand comes as an extension of the renowned top model’s successful career, who ignited runways for brands such as Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Dries Van Noten and Dior Homme (among others).
Aimed at delivering luxury footwear for men, the focus is on high end materials, quality craftsmanship (made in Italy) and fresh, invigorating color palette and design, courtesy of Rucky Zambrano. On this first collection the range of models includes boat shoes, desert boots, loafers and a personal favourite, the woven sandal.
