Corthay trunk show, today and tomorrow

Corthay trunk show

Today and tomorrow we are hosting a trunk show with renowned French shoemaker Corthay. We’ll have a number of samples on hand, as well as fitting shoes so you can determine your size. Corthay’s made-to-order surcharge is waived for the duration of the show.

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. 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.
