Bravo!!! John Derian has put together an incredible book ~ an archive of sorts of many of the special images he has put together for his plates and three dimensional objects. This is one to get ~ and what a special gift it makes for John Derian collectors and fans! We just received our shipment and we have a limited amount of signed copies. Feel free to contact us if you would like us to save you one.
Black patent Repetto maryjanes with a little square heel- a favorite classic. Worn here with the Marilyn jeans- the 701 by Levi's Vintage Collection- and a Jungmaven 100% hemp tee.
Anyone who has ever worn Repetto ballet flats knows that the craftsmanship involved makes these the most elegant and beautiful shoes... and also the most comfortable. They are all hand finished which creates a precision to the look of the shoe (as small details can be articulated- whereas a machine doesn't have the same ability) and also gives them a special feel - as things done by hand always do. They look delicate, but these shoes are super durable and last forever. A big part of the craftsmanship is in the sole which looks very flat- but there are actually two soles. The leather upper is sewn in between the two to create the look of a very flat shoe, but giving it the durability that is so important.
We just received our big Fall shipment (happy Fall - it's officially today!) - and most of the colors are shown above- starting with tattoo- a metallic midnight blue leather, navy blue leather, navy blue patent leather, black leather, black patent leather, black patent jazz shoes and black patent mary janes with a small square heel. We love the patent with faded jeans- and we also see them with a brand new pair of dark rigid jeans and a white tee. Simply, easy and stunning! <3
These will soon be available in our online shop... but feel free to send us an email or call with any questions ~ email@example.com, 520-795-2272.
The official start of Fall is this Thursday- September 22. The new season has us thinking of textiles ~ different combinations of texture and color. Shown above from the bottom up- a beautiful denim blue wool shawl with a rustic fringe edging, a beautiful vintage frazada from Bolivia, an off white cotton throw, a handwoven cotton blanket/throw with navy blue stitching running twice down the length of the throw, and a gingham cotton shawl/small throw.
