J.W. Anderson's Moon Bag for Rumer Willis

Inspired by architectural shapes and proportions, the Moon bag is a sculptural object made of calf leather, and is core to the J.W. Anderson bag range. I wanted to embrace the architectural design of the bag with a geometric work of art along the front of the bag. The geometric artwork is comprised of shades of grey and black made exclusively for Rumer Willis.

Essential Homme

Footwear brand since 1892, men’s shoemaker Florsheim stays a step ahead of the curve with a new mini capsule collection with artist Ben Smith. Combining the rich leather of the brand with the artist’s self-taught skill, the colorful collaboration sees abstract styles created from acrylic paint atop Florsheim leather that has been specially formulated to neither chip nor fade. The final result—which is available for custom orders online now—takes approx. 10-15 days, but be sure that the wait is worth it.

Florsheim x Brush by Ben Smith project

Some view shoes as an item of function, but at Florsheim we’ve always believed that footwear defines the man, giving the outside world a look at his personality and individuality. During our initial conversations with Ben, we realized his artistic process, care and detail works towards that same goal, taking it one step further. By combining his contemporary, inspired painting aesthetic with our handcrafted modern footwear, we’ve created something unexpected, something worthwhile of a second look, because they really are works of art.
