The Material Boy #55





Lanvin Suede Tie Front Boating Shoe and Metallic Derby Lace-ups

Lanvin always intrigues me with their colour use. They are usually unconventional and surprises even the most 'discerning shopaholic' like myself:-P I love the purple metallic patent leather on these shoes! Oh my...it just screams for attention(in a good way) and will definitely be a conversation piece for people when you attend any events or functions.

I especially love the Suede Tie Front Boating Shoes, easy to wear day to day, relaxed chic with a punch of shiny purple! As for the Derby Lace-ups (with the special heel design), I have featured other colours(Copper and Metallic Blue) before and Club 21 Mens store stocks them at $1269 a pair. Quite an investment for footwear, but like John (the buyer at Club 21 Mens) said, these are special pieces for special occasions and you dun wear them everyday. Good for occasions that warrants some head turning moments:-P

Browns Fashion has many designs of Lanvin footwear to choose from online. More exciting styles and colours than Club 21's. But expect to pay premium price for something this unique.

Retail price:
1) Suede Tie Front Boating Shoes - UK 440 pounds

2) Purple Metallic Derby Lace-ups - UK 395 pounds

Hi Jay, good Thursday to you...did you managed to get fri off?:-)

Well, occassions to wear these shoes? Such as attending the singapore fashion festival shows at the Tent? Gala dinner? Or maybe some costume party? hahaha

the possibilities could be endless...but of course not for just walking down orchard.:-P
