Oliver Sweeney SS15
Oliver Sweeney has always been one of the brands that never disappoints. This season (SS15), they have completely broadened their design, which now includes a unique twist on the classic espadrille and also a personalisation option, which a lot of brands have found sell well.
Set up at the front of the shop was the woman who creates all the personalising, a lovely lady that seemed happy as Larry working away creating that special design for one lucky person.
I was quickly offered a drink at the pop-up bar (which was very impressive considering the store wasn't that big anyway) and was shown around the collection which as I said, didn't fail to disappoint.
This season is all about changing up the designs and making them like like never before. They have branched out to brogue monk-straps, the classic Chelsea boot with their “staple” purple colour and a map design which is different based on where the shoe was manufactured (in the pictures below).
They have also continued their splendid accessories: laptop cases, satchels, wallets, phone cases, a double hip flask (very important) and much more!
We also got a sneak peek at the prototype of the Johnnie Walker x Oliver Sweeney brogue. This is standard brogue which has a slot in the heel for a small bottle of whisky (or whatever tipple you fancy) that you can just pull out whenever you need it. It would really come in handy in Press Day season!
