CLAE FALL WINTER 2016
“Design must be functional, and functionality must be translated into visual aesthetics without any reliance on gimmicks that have to be explained.” – Ferdinand Porsche
HIGH-END MEETS FUNCTION: Sneakers get a much-needed upgrade this season with the release of Los Angeles based brand CLAE’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. Designed for the modern man’s wardrobe, the collection favors an elevated and contemporary aesthetic. Unexpected materials add character, while the refined silhouettes show off the quality craftsmanship.
From luxury waxed full-grain leather to wool and nylon canvas and water resistant treatment, the collection incorporates functionality using the most exquisite materials.
BRADLEY MID CLAE: reveals a mid-top version of their new classic BRADLEY, the BRADLEY MID. First introduced via a collaboration with the brand PUBLISH, they are available in a monochromatic full grain black leather or in white leather. A subtle neoprene heel accent has been added for easy slip on and off, made for the man on the go. A fundamental of this season.
ELLINGTON RUNNER & DESMOND EVA: Best-selling ELLINGTON and DESMOND get reshaped with lightweight EVA outsoles and suede upgrades this Fall. Coined the ELLINGTON RUNNER, the new silhouette is offered in a clean, luxe finish created from an unlined, waxed suede for a silken texture and backed up waterproofing. The DESMOND EVA is lighter in weight compared to its predecessor with a newly updated synthetic suede upper. Extremely light and versatile, the DESMOND EVA weighs just under 210g, making it one of CLAE’s lightest silhouettes ever!
HOFFMAN: A solid bet for the entire season, the sporty HOFFMAN sneaker is rendered in a nylon/coated suede, waxed canvas and in a high-end charcoal wool. All materials are moisture wicking with performance in mind and enhanced technical features present. The nylon/suede blend features abrasion and tear resistance for durability; waxed canvas keeps the look of regular canvas but is weather resistant, while wool provides comfort, durability and warmth, keeping your feet stress-free and supported.
The new collection is now available at select retailers and at www.clae.eu
