Fall 2016 Trunk Shows
We organize trunk shows with our vendors twice a year. They are a fantastic opportunity to meet the artisans or their representatives who are extremely knowledgeable about their products. It is also an excellent chance to see first-hand many sample styles for custom orders.

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.

Thomas Riemer gloves are handmade and handcrafted in the Riemer workshop in Vienna, where they’ve been making gloves since 1845. They are the oldest glovemaker in Vienna, and use only the finest skins, hand-selecting each with meticulous care for the finest quality and construction.
