luxury slider brand Playts made in Italy men's footwearIntroducing the world’s first brand to niche in luxury sliders, Playts. ‘Super high-quality Italian made footwear”, that is said to be not only unique and stylish, but also gives customers the comfort they desire.
 
The name is i
nspired by cockney rhyming slang, plates of meat (feet), and the logo is a rift on the letter ‘P’ which is the silhouette of a basic slider standing on its heel.
 
Playts use a special padded material in the upper of the slide and a contoured footbed to avoid blisters (one of the biggest issues with sliders) which gives the consumer a luxury slider that is not only aesthetically pleasing but wearable from day one. Ensuring that there are no faults at all, Playts have undertaken extensive research to find the number one slider manufacture which also enabled them to design their sliders of the highest of quality and durability alongside industry experts, allowing them to implement a chunky monogramed sole with their custom archways, to elevate the wearer but save weight.

To connect with their customers on a personal level, Playts have created an authentication service powered by Certilogo, to connect their customers from the start in one of the most engaging ways as possible. As soon as customers receive their Playts, they get their own Certilogo card and scan the hologram to begin their complimentary authentication and digital experience.

TheChicGeek says, “I’m not sure how many people really care about the quality or find sliders uncomfortable. It’s a bit like buying flip-flops for life, they’re in their nature disposable and a yearly, box-fresh pre-holiday/summer buy. Just when did you have to pay nearly £300 for a decent pair? Be interesting to see if these live up to the price tag when they come out.”

Mr. SlowBoy Illustrates Sebago SS21

Ivy League Mr Slowboy SebagoFei Wang, aka Mr. SlowBoy, an artist known for his menswear drawings has collaborated with Sebago to launch their new collection.

“I’m a slow person; slow in almost everything. Among my friends I’m always the last one to get the joke. I surely like slow fashion too, in other words, classic designs”, he says.

The 40-yr-old Chinese artist – born in Beijing and based in London since 2015 – has a passion for the American Ivy League look.  The 8 illustrated  drawings by Mr. Slowboy portray the Sebago man in his Citysides, Docksides and Campsides styles.

A universe of style starting at the Portland Yacht Club, with its shoes by the same name (100% Ripstop cotton jacket, short sleeve shirt, elegant but sturdy white trousers, boat bag); passing through the Harvard campus (red sweater, button down shirt, beige straight leg trousers, inspired by American military uniforms, and the most classic moccasins); going cycling in the city streets (in a blue polo shirt, three-button summer jacket, pinstripe chinos and moccasins with a metal fast); and finally embracing the great outdoors of the American parks, mountains and lakes, sporting a T- shirt, minimal men’s shorts and a short sleeve weekend shirt.

Pallabrousse Legion,  Palladium bootReturning in SS21 to the boot where it all started, Palladium introduces its most meticulously crafted replica of its first ever style, Pallabrousse. Designed specifically for the arid and unforgiving terrains tackled by the French Foreign Legion, upon its launch in 1947, the Pallabrousse redefined what it meant to be a function-first utility boot.

Left - Palladium - Pallabrousse Legion Boot - £85

The new SS21 style, named Pallabrousse Legion, is the closest facsimile to Palladium’s original boot to date. Inspired by the brand’s military heritage, it reworks the classic style in an 8oz waxed canvas to deliver durability. The hi-top top style features an organic CVS canvas upper and a dual rubber sole with matching rubber toe cap. The moulded rubber tread incorporates spaced lugs that form even ‘bridges’ to distribute weight for maximum comfort in the most uneven of terrains alongside two wider bars that prevent arch collapse while delivering additional support. The structure of the boot helps eliminate the causes of foot fatigue to make long walks and extensive periods of standing easier.

The new Pallabrousse Legion is available in a tonal colour palette referencing the brand’s military heritage, each shade a different representation of terrain inspired by the environments the original legionnaires traversed.

All styles are available to purchase at www.palladiumboots.com and select global stockists.
