Below: Camouflage prints are all the rage this summer... Even Milan Vukmirovic, Trussardi 1911's head deisgner approves of this pattern. I love Milan's style and his new SS2011 collection for Trussardi. I am happy that I can get into a bit of the 'camouflage craze' thru these shoes:-)
Schmid Denver Camouflage Print Canvas Sneakers
With sale season reaching an end very soon, it's time to reveal some of my sale shopping conquests!
Besides the Tsumori Chisato silver print bowtie I got from Blackjack (A multi label store in Singapore that stocks the most avant garde labels with a strong lineup of Japanese designers), I also got a pair of ultra light weight sneakers to replace my soon to be very worn out Junya Watanabe Converse shoes.
I love these lightweight trainers from German label, Schmid. U may not have heard of Schmid or Peter Schmid the designer, but I am positive you would have seen some of his creations, especially if you love Puma shoes. Yes, Peter Schmid is best know for his footwear designs for Puma AG in which many of his designs including "Mostro", "Sprint", "Speedcat", "Avanti" are today regarded as classics with the brand. His designwork was vital to Puma's rapid expansion starting in the late 90's. From July 2000 to October 2000 some of his designs were shown at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Schmid has also worked on the Puma Golf collection as well as the Mens’ line for Pumas’ collaboration with Alexander McQueen. Other big fashion names in his portfolio included the American brand Donna Karen. With such an impressive resume, I am already developing an interest in his shoe designs. And when I saw this pair of Denver Sneakers at Blackjack in the currently hot camouflage print pattern, I am sold!
This pair of Denver sneakers has a unique cut. The semi high cut rise slopes down towards the back of your feet instead of the usual straight cut. I love the way they look on your ankles without wearing socks. These will be perfect to pull off the military camouflage trend I blog previously. It's also very light and dirt resistant for travels:-P An affordable pair of shoes suited for wear any day. It's definitely coming with me on my upcoming holiday!
(Note: Schmid sells online here as well as in Singapore at Blackjack, Forum Shopping Mall)
