You are cordially invited to the first New York trunk show featuring the renowned shoes of Stefano Bemer. Tommaso Milani will be here on October 2 and 3 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
You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with William Abraham on May 10 from 11:00 am to 6:00 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.
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.
Pierre will be here for two days to accept custom Ready-to-Wear and Bespoke orders. When a master shoemaker visits it’s a rare opportunity, and one you won’t want to miss.
