Stefano Bemer trunk show, April 16

You are cordially invited to the exclusive New York trunk show featuring the renowned shoes of Stefano Bemer. Tommaso Melani will be here on April 16 to present the collection.

Offering both bespoke and ready-to-wear, Stefano Bemer shoes are entirely handmade with exacting attention to detail in their workshop in Florence. A variety of leathers are available, ranging from traditional calfskins and shell cordovan to elephant, hippo, shark, and other exotics, all done in the singular Stefano Bemer style. This isn’t an event to miss.

“A shoe is an object which, if of excellent quality, helps us to walk and live more comfortably. When made from high quality materials and using excellent craftsmanship, it becomes a product that pleases us and stands out from the inevitable globalization of brands and industrially manufactured products.” —Stefano Bemer, 1964 – 2012

William Abraham trunk show continues tomorrow from 11 to 6

Our trunk show with William Abraham continues tomorrow from 11 am to 6 pm. Bram Frankel, founder, will be here to present the collection.

Inspired by impeccably tailored suits and exquisite suiting fabric, William Abraham introduces an elegant aesthetic and a distinct sartorial perspective to the world of fine socks for men. Until now, only two options have been available: traditional, old-school socks, or trendy, fashion-statement socks. William Abraham offers an option for the style-savvy gent: fine socks designed with modern elegance and sartorial sophistication.

Knit from nature’s finest noble fibers like cashmere, merino wool, Belize cotton, fil d’ecosse cotton, mulberry silk, and ultra-rare fibers like vicuña and cervelt, the William Abraham collection embodies a continuous search for the world’s finest yarns and craftsmanship.

With by far the widest variety of fine-fabric socks and over-the-calf socks, the William Abraham collection is the fine sock destination for modern elegance and sartorial sophistication.

Norman Vilalta trunk show, March 5 and 6

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Norman Vilalta on March 5 and 6 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm each day. Offering both bespoke and made-to-order shoes, Norman Vilalta is a classically trained shoemaker with a modern eye for detail.

Norman studied and practiced law for a number of years, but at 31 decided he wanted to pursue something that truly motivated him. In 2002, he moved from his home in Argentina to Florence, where he trained in the Stefano Bemer workshop. Since then he’s been crafting shoes in his workshop in Barcelona.

All of Norman’s shoes are unique creations that attest to his love of creating beautiful objects. They’re truly pieces of art, and Norman is a true artist, taking inspiration from sources as varied as Ferran Adrià to contemporary Nike sneakers.

Alongside some faces familiar to us here at Leffot (Phillip Car, Tony Gaziano, Dean Girling, Pierre Corthay, and Tommaso Melani, among others), Norman recently took part in the BeShoes event held at the Stefano Bemer workshop during Pitti Uomo 87. We’re proud to host Sr. Vilalta for his first US trunk show this March. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to come see his beautiful work.
