Ted Bakker Spring/Summer 2016

The Spring/Summer 2016 men’s collection of footwear combines optimistic explosions of colour with authentically worn ranges.

Think 1950s colour saturated Hollywood movies as the shoes overflow with colour. These Technicolor shoes are a touch of vintage with modern humour.

Classic moccasins, driving shoes, nylon running shoes, gentleman’s brogues and jazz shoes all come in brights, from Mediterranean sky blues to deep inky blues, from pale pinks to fruity raspberries, through to bright oranges, this collection of footwear is a veritable kaleidoscope of colour.

Also the leathers and suedes used are tactile, soft and deconstructed giving the shoes a fantastically summery feel.

Meanwhile, some of the men’s shoes have a used, authentic feel using warm, lived-in materials. Softly worn-out casuals have distinct signs of retro styling.

Desert boots and lace-up brogues have also been heavily burnished and unlined to create a vintage deconstructed look for Spring.

See the shoes.
