Karmuel Young Revolutionizing Men’s Footwear

MINIMAL TWISTS TO MODERN STYLE

 

karmuelYoung21

Unlike the dizzying, drastic changes often found in women’s fashion, menswear moves at a glacial pace. Its evolution, for the most part, is measured in small increments and consists of small shifts in silhouette, fabric or detail rather than radical reinventions. It’s only fitting, then, that Karmuel Young’s “revolutionary products” for men consist of little more than shoelaces and shoe cuffs — simple items that transform “regular and easily forgotten details into unconventional possibilities.”

Titled Dress Shoe Reform, the debut project from the Hong Kong-based design label was intended to add value to existing daily items — in this case, footwear — while challenging our ideas of what a menswear reformation should be. Each item was designed with clean lines and architectural forms, and was made with fine materials like Italian calf leather, mink or waxed cotton cord. Adding minimal twists to modern style, the collection of shoe accessories comes in a variety of colors, textures and patterns, and provide a wonderfully simple way of injecting personality and longevity to the footwear you already own.

Keffiyeh Fashion

I came accross this beautiful top by just scrolling through instagram earlier this afternoon, and the top happened to be made from the famouse Palestinian keffiyeh fabric. The fabric is usually used to make scarves, that the military men wear, and religious men from the Muslim world wear. But somewhere down the line someone had a genius idea to make this beautiful scarf fabric into clothing.

Namely a new emerging brand called: Cecilie Copenhagen 

 Edit

  

Well, we had to put our two cents in by jumping on board to assemble some keffiyeh threads of our own, with a twist. The fabric is so chic and unique, that the style pair ups are endless. 

Have a look at what we put together: 

  

Paired with some leather barefoot shoes.

Shoe designer of the week Esska

Shoe designer of the week goes to Esska shoes of London. The designer Souraya Karimi actually started out in the field of architect, but then decided to design shoes because of the lack of designer footwear geared to the unique and confident fashionista.
