United Bamboo launches a new diffusion brand for the 2010 fall/winter season under the moniker “Le Bac”. The brand’s name is a derivative of France’s “le Baccalauréat” which is the US equivalent of the SATs and a test taken pre-university. The line designed by Miho Aoki and Thuy Tham kicks things off with a partnership with Eastland on a high-cut moccasin boot. Seen in two colors, the boot features a 5-hole design with rubber outsole. Available now through United Bamboo.
