VAGABOND SHOEMAKERS PRESENTS S/S 2023 COLLECTION
For spring/summer 2023, Vagabond Shoemakers presents a dynamic collection that combines statement silhouettes with optimal comfort in the brand’s signature way. The overall theme focuses on the concept of the full-day cover – contemporary footwear to wear from morning to night, characterised by a modern yet edgy twist.
The brand’s well-known aesthetic of bold silhouettes and signature outsoles runs like a thread through the collection, both in Vagabond’s classic models and the latest newcomers. The collection focuses on key styles that enhance everyday looks, ranging from trainers to casual sandals, ballerinas and summer shoes.
Trainers by Shoemakers is the carefully curated selection of everyday trainers in classic and contemporary styles. Newcomer Maya is the low-profile trainer with a casual yet elegant look, designed in two options: one with tight lacing and one with a track-inspired upper. This season, the ballerina also returns. The new Jolin has a classic and sophisticated aesthetic – designed with details like decorative bows, chains and elasticated straps for different style options. Completing the flat shoe segment is the new all-day sandal Blenda, which offers a subtle coolness and comfortable element with its padded outsoles and refined uppers. The selection includes sleek mules, braided slippers, pool sandals and minimal slingback sandals. Accompanied by a more dressy option with the new flat sandal Izzy, designed with straps in neon and metallic hues.
The men’s segment consists of sleek, minimal shoes that can be worn all day. Trainers by Shoemakers is an essential segment of the collection, updated with the new court trainer Cedric. The style is subtly inspired by classic skate trainers, executed in different combinations of white leather with coloured back tabs. The chunky theme remains synonymous with the brand’s DNA, with iconic styles Jeff and Mike in the foreground alongside everyday trainers and minimal sandals. Nate is the latest addition to the sandal range, designed with a minimal upper and chunky, rounded soles.
The S/S collection is designed in a neutral colour palette with mood-enhancing hues such as lime green, various shades of pink and this season’s favourite accent colour, cobalt blue – along with subtle elements of silver. The styles are made from durable materials, from supple leather to refined suede and nubuck, ensuring a well-kept aesthetic.
