The Summer collection introduces a new informal and emancipated elegance articulated around two types of models.
First, a folk spirit is given to lightweight classics developed in supple leathers – often unlined – and mounted on thin leather or rubber soles. Desert boots, “espadrille” slippers and slip-ons refer to a drifting Jack Kerouac look, or an unlaced derby evoking a Gypsy Rock Jimi Hendrix type. These shoes reflect a feeling of travel, wandering, from the Mediterranean Sea to Orient. Black, cobalt blue, Havana and black stripes, kaki,... these colours take us to sunny destinations.
Second, the sport models refer to a more urban aesthetic. Two new sneakers, the Vibe and the Trail, play on graphic constructions. Pierre Hardy designs extremely striking models in contrasting tones.
Casual or sporty, these models are often punctuated with colourful lines, whether it’s in black and Havana leather for the dressed models or in overlapped leather bands for the sneakers. Pierre Hardy defines a new dynamic tempo.
