Last month, Japanese label Hender Scheme showcased its expansive lineup of SS20 footwear, alongside other accessories and lifestyle goods. The artisanal leathermaker has returned, showcasing a pair of black slip-ons and a wallet that feature premium Python leather, a staple of the Japanese brand’s New Years drops.
First up is the black dress shoes, constructed with a sleek build that comes with a rounded almond toe. The top of the piece sees a sectioned snakeskin panel that’s been treated with a light brown tint. The panel starts from the collars, widens slightly to the sides and ends at the throat line, just before the vamp. A helix-shaped stitch pattern appears at the rearmost part of the toe cap as a subtle accent to the shoe’s polished look. Finishing off the piece is a full-length Vibram midsole that’s raised slightly at the heel.
The next piece is the classic wallet, covered with textured python leather. It’s lined with natural vegan leather on the inside, which develops a rich, unique patina over time based on the owner’s use. The right side of the wallet comes with a coin pouch with a triangular flap, while the left side features a thin slit for holding cards — behind both compartments is an opening to store notes and bills. Rounding up these details, the wallet sees a silver-tone snap closure that flaps over the top of the wallet when closed.
Hender Scheme’s python leather shoes and wallet will be available for $533 USD and $258 USD, respectively, at the label’s website as well as its flagship store in Sukima, Tokyo.
