If you need a little something to take the edge off the Christmas comedown and return to work but all that festive overindulgence is making you shudder at the thought of clothes shopping, there’s only one thing to do - buy new shoes. Embracing the ‘new year, new you’ – or should that be ‘new year, new wardrobe’ – spirit, pick-me-up January purchases are practically mandatory. Providing a sartorial fix that will work for the office, post-work pints and formal occasions alike, the new Kurt Geiger City Collection is just the ticket.
Comprised of three classic lace-ups – 'Burlington', 'Granville', and 'Albemarle' – this capsule collection is the last word in timeless luxury. Each style is made in Italy and features premium Italian leather uppers, linings, and handmade leather soles. Fusing sophistication with practicality, the leather soles have an added rubber forepart for extra comfort and durability. Paying homage to the inspiration behind the collection, in-soles are emblazoned with the London skyline.
Punchier than the other City Collection offerings, 'Granville' is our latest take on the Oxford pattern brogue. In rich tan or elegant black, either colour will add a suave touch to everything you pair them with. Play up the dapper feel of the brogue detailing by pairing with plush textures like velvet or try the tan pair with indigo cuffed jeans and a blazer for a smart/casual look.
The simplest of the City Collection trio, 'Albemarle' is the ultimate in understated luxury. While at first glance it may appear to be a classic polished black Oxford shoe, look closer and you’ll see a slightly beefed-up construction that adds to their versatility. A sharp tailored suit is the obvious office option – take a break from black with a rich wine hue - while rolled up black jeans, a slim fit t-shirt and leather jacket will take them off-duty.
A go-with-everything Oxford lace-up elevated by subtle stitch detailing, 'Burlington' will take you from desk to dinner or date with ease. The pared-back design and black leather make them the perfect finishing touch for bolder looks, so try with a checked two-piece or keep it classic with navy or grey.
