The LunarGrand arguably opened the public discussion for a true balance between work and play. Previous brands flirted with the idea, yet it was Cole Haan‘s fusion of Nike‘s Lunarlon sole technology with truly classic shoes that broke through formal barriers to create such a widely acceptable hybrid. Following up on a December release with Hiroshi Fujiwara‘s fragment design, the two brands bring a similar level of sensibility to a new release: the LunarGrand Venetian Bit. The new loafer is a reinterpretation of an international style, and is available in two colors: tan/gold and navy/silver. From Dover Street Market Ginza in Japan to any other world location, this premier slip-on offers supreme versatility. The shoe releases on February 6 at Cole Haan SoHo in New York, and will retail for $298 USD.
