CLAE Goes Technical with the Waterproof Suiting Collection

For a footwear brand that has become synonymous with mature silhouettes that blend both street and casual sensibilities, CLAE has thus far remained distant from experimental textiles and fabrics. Fall/Winter 2012 sees the brand innovating within the realm of technical garb with its latest Waterproof Suiting collection. Using staple silhouettes like the Richards boot, Strayhorn mid-top, Powell wingtip and Ellington low-top, the brand envelopes each iteration in a finely heathered, waterproof upper. Rounded out by cupsoles and tonal leather accents, the whole collection fuses a decidedly shades of grey mentality into the seasonal footwear landscape. Those in the market can find stock directly from CLAE as well as select stockists.
