Few collaborations have been this successful in pairing two iconic brands and producing such a desirable outcome. Paul Smith is the face of British fashion and master of colour, while John Lobb is the most distinguished name in British bootmaking – together the pair fuse old-school craftsmanship and new-school playfulness.
This is TVG in a nut-shell, reflecting and respecting the arts of past yet executing it with a modern twist. Paul Smith has brought a punch of colour to three classic John Lobb style – the Westbourne oxford, the Willoughby derby and the Lucca loafer – and has given understated style a new lease of life in shades of cherry red, lapis blue and regal purple. (The video below talks about the collaboration and the bootmaking process at John Lobb, its a great watch).
