When I design and craft boots, I am leaning into inspiration I find more often than not in industrial design.
This new CP Arm Chair by venerated and veteran midcentury modern designer, Charles Pollock is making me pretty crazy today.
Amazing lines. The silhouette is lean and fast. The craftsmanship is by hand, of course, and that is where perfection can be found - in the large loop stitch, made of the same material as the chair, which creates subtle dimension.
These are the unique details that add luxury and inspire desire… and exactly why I choose to create handcrafted bootwear in a modwestern minimal style. No need for much frou frou when a beautiful story can be found in a stitch.
