H?Katsukawa, Tokyo Silkprint CollectionBy Meieli Detoni
Luxury shoes always fall on the side of “buy,” but the shopping list would get too lengthy, too fast if we really planned on getting every single pair we saw. However, the H?Katsukawa Tokyo Silkprint Collection might be something that you actually want to track down, budget for, beg for, whatever suits your fancy. Certainly for the dapper man, the Tokyo Silkprint Collection has derbys and oxfords available with an antique-looking finish. Black round laces look superb on the pairs, of course, but so do the skinny light-colored laces shown above–or both.
Paying more attention to the soles and outsoles of these marvelous shoes, I can tell that they’re worth the time I spent scrutinizing the shots–and the moola. Muted upper colors with a dash of pattern (including stripes and stars, in addition to the checked option) make these shoes some of Eiichi Katsukawa’s best. This shot shown above is from Style Savage, which offers great insight into the images:
“Katsukawa makes hand made, eye poppingly colourful and patterned brogues, along with wonderfully textured distressed Nibe leather brogues from his studio in Tokyo. [...] Katsukawa is currently focusing on his eponymous collection and his offering is growing with each season.”
We can see why, and sharing these images is much appreciated!
