Below: Luxury trekking styles for the urban explorer... my new shoe obsession: Louis Vuitton Safari Sandals in Masai Damier Canvas... Love the pop of red and blue!
I now have a new shoe obsession. Window shopping over weekends is never easy on your wallets. Look what I spotted yesterday after a trip to the LV stores here in Singapore.
I am in love with Louis Vuitton's Safari Sandals in Masai Damier Canvas. Burberry Prorsum's disappointing construction for their Cork-soled Tapestry Jacquard Fabric Lace-ups has led me to shift my shopping radar for statement shoes (The rolled edging on those Burberry shoes are simply too painful to walk in).
These Louis Vuitton's Safari Sandals are instantly identifiable with those vivid red and blue Masai Damier canvas that is featured prominently over the Spring Summer 2012 runway show. The Masai Damier checks is a key design detail for LV's new SS2012 menswear.
It's trekking style meet luxury... high grip rubber soles matched with gold tone and plastic buckle (Think Timberland given a million dollars makeover) with eye popping colours that gives this pair of sandals an interesting mix of aesthetics. Wear them with shorts or rolled up khakis for an urban explorer attitude. I want them! At SGD1320... I guess you will also not find plenty of these treading the streets alongside you. So exclusivity is a major plus:-)
Brilliant new collection by designer Kim Jones. LV is now back on my radar.
