Frank Wright Angel boot
For Autumn Winter 16/17 I designed and developed a footwear and accessories range to be sold across the UK by a premium Indian leather supplier. One of the boots from this line was a high cut boot in a heavy grain leather with a washed leather outsole, a real stunner in quality materials. This style was bought and developed by Frank Wright for the AW16/17 footwear range. Featured in blogs such as Man for Himself, sold instore and online sites such as ASOS.
The collar is in a contrast leather with a smoother grain. The shoe has a modern style of broguing, traditional brogue punching has an inside and outside stitch line, for this range I wanted the broguing to be slightly different – we removed the unnecessary stitching for a cleaner finish. A great reason for doing this is we reduced the time needed for manufacture, the lack of stitching reduces cost and time, the risk of a machinist stitching an irregular line is reduced. From a manufacturing point of view, all pluses.
