Corthay trunk show, April 30 and May 1

We cordially invite you to join us for a trunk show with Corthay on April 30 and May 1 from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm.

Corthay is arguably one of France’s most dynamic shoemakers; his shoes are elegant and ultra sophisticated, like small works of art. He began his shoemaking career at Les Compagnons du Tour de France, a venerable crafts guild. He later worked for John Lobb Paris before taking over as atelier head at Berluti. In 1990 he struck out on his own and has not looked back.

In 2010 he was awarded the honor of “Master of Art” by the government of France and creates shoes that are simply genius. The Master of Art designation of France, while not widely known in the States, is not bestowed lightly. In short, it means that the individual or firm is a cultural icon.

Corthay Arca, Black Patent Leather

The Arca is the quintessential Corthay shoe: simple, sleek, and painstakingly detailed. It is surprisingly versatile while remaining highly distinctive. This pair is made in patent leather, which is the ultimate material when it comes to formal wear. Put them on with a tux, or wear them casually for a stylish look.
