Oliver Sweeney never chase menswear trends, that’s a fact. They prefer to make shoes and clothing that pushes boundaries and stands the test of time. It sounds simple, but it’s probably hard work. This brand is consistently coming up with innovative techniques and new materials to enhance their traditional craftsmanship skills and they’re constantly updating their classic styles and collections with alternative detailing and finishes. On the back of the success of Oliver Sweeney’s Ultraleggera launch in June 2017, they’ve expanded their casual range to include an update of Correre. Featuring the same lightweight high-performance sole, the upper has been dip dyed and then hand burnished to create a truly eye-catching finish.
Another exciting development this year is the inaugural denim collection. Hand crafted in Portugal, they’ve selected denims from two iconic mills, Cone Mills and Candiani. The best jeans are all about the materials and the constructions, so developing a denim collection was a natural next step for the brand. Denim ages beautifully over time, just like the best leather, so Oliver Sweeney have drawn on extensive knowledge of patina and hand finishing to create something rather special. Don’t miss the cotton velvet blazer which is a style the brand re-introduced specifically for the festive season. This luxurious plush fabric has been sourced from the iconic Pontiglio mill in Italy, regarded as one of the best fabric mills in the world. So, plenty to look forward to over the coming months.
