Introducing: Lobo Marinho
The brainchild of my good friend André Marinho, Lobo Marinho is an upcoming Portuguese brand aimed at delivering craftsmanship and passion to all those with a dandy feel. The family run business brings together three generations, with all pocket squares incorporating the lifetime experience and traditional techniques used by his grandmother. Featuring a variety of patterns and fabrics, each square is sewn and rolled by hand with unique passion and dedication. I was happy to be involved in the project shooting the pics for the website and Boris made the cut as well.

Buttero SS15 Pitti Preview
By now, Buttero needs no introduction… universally praised as one the best sneaker manufacturers around, the Tuscan-based family brand has elevated its models to new standards. As one of their biggest fans and supporters, I’m constantly showcasing their other footwear alternatives, namely boat shoes, loafers, derbies and the exclusive boots dating back to the brand’s origins.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the SS15 collection places a heavy bet on more casual models, including a variety of sneakers, slip-ons and sandals, without forgetting some more classic alternatives. Making use of some of the best vegetable tanned leather and suede out there, the result is an amazing mix of materials in both subtle and bright shades, along with beautiful craftsmanship as seen in the braided leather versions. New additions include a lightweight construction making use of cork-based soles with vibram layering. Their AW14 collection is now online at the official website.

Feelflows Surfboards x Lightning Bolt Editorial
I’ve mentioned my brother’s project as a shaper quite a few times before…Similarly to myself, he too changed his life course to pursue his passions and hence Feelflows was born.
His unique creative mindset and refined aesthetic have led to exclusive surfboard designs. This one is a personal favourite and a perfect example of how fabrics can transcend the fashion realm into different areas: in a collaboration with Lightning Bolt, he incorporated a fabric inlay from their SS14 collection onto this 6’0”Hullico. The result is nothing short of outstanding…
