Opumo x Footwear

Opumo just recently took a huge leap as they expanded their collection from various accessories to cover casual footwear as well. And not only did they bring one or two models available but multiple choices from 6 different brands (Sanders, Grenson, Mark Mcnairy, Buttero, Sperry Top-Sider and YMC) Decided to pick few of my favorites from the launched selection. Buttero blue suede low sneakers Exclusive to Opumo for spring-summer ´14 this pair features Italian suede uppers, leather laces, metal eyelets and off-white rubber soles. Suitable with light colored denim or white cotton slacks for example, my absolute favorite from the collection. Sanders suede wingtip brogues (navy & green) Colored suede uppers and natural crepe soles - a nice choice for casual...

Mismo @ Pitti Uomo 84

S/S ´14 As usual, Mismo came up tough and inspirational. The collection presents some new materials and mixtures such as the linen, linen/cotton, new colored canvas plus also some techinal fabrics that seemed to be perfect for more casual attendance. For S/S 2014 Mismo has also decided to step into the “camouflage game” as the print is strongly presented in many pieces of the collection. But unlikely to what we’ve used to see in the spring and summer collections of Mismo there’s really no splashes or flashy choices in terms of the color scheme this time. Instead there’s a lot shades of blue, brown, sand and green with some little additions of restrained tones of orange. Read the full post @Editors’...
