Paul Smith x John Lobb 2013 Spring/Summer Collection Preview
Each a mainstay in their respective channels of British menswear, designer Paul Smith and heritage footwear label John Lobb have put forth a combined effort for this 2013 spring/summer collection. A traditional approach is maintained for this trio of shoes that consist of one loafer style, an oxford, and a vamp derby. Blending playful tones on behalf of Sir Paul and notable contemporary detailing with conventional manufacturing practices as per Lobb’s century-old techniques, each pair also comes with the additional bonus of custom packaging. These three limited edition styles made their debut at the Paul Smith showing during Paris Men’s Fashion Week and have since been launched in John Lobb stores on July 1, while a later date of September 1 holds a release in select Paul Smith stockists.
