The new collection of the Robert Clergerie brand 2017 autumn was shown at Men's Fashion Week in Paris.
When creating the collection, creative director of the brand Robert Clergerie Roland Mouret took inspiration from the archives of the brand. He tried to make a mix of traditions and modern trends. This concept is reflected in the application of traditional brand techniques, which are paired with modern technology and modern models.
Curved boots-deserts, derby and chelsea were sewn by hand using the corrugation technique. The sole of the boot is fastened according to the Goodyear principle.
The classic Clergerie Roel brogues have got a new look by adding a white shoe-type sole or a thick sole with a curly heel edge.
Derby shoes and loafers are also redesigned with lamb leather lining and latex soles. “This latex is 100% natural and very resilient,” says Eva Taub, CEO Robert Clergerie. “Very few brands use this material because it is expensive. It is made from a rubber tree, Brazilian hevea. Usually this material is used in its pure form for the production of tires, and to emphasize this feature, all soles are marked with the Latin inscription “Lactae Hevea.”
