Patrick Cox LATHBRIDGE AW16 defined as nostalgic and eclectic

Luxury shoe designer, Patrick Cox's new AW16 LATHBRIDGE Collection is defined as nostalgic and eclectic.

The collections has been unveiled at a presentation at London Collections: Men.

The nostalgia stems from Cox’s decision to revisit and rework his bestselling style – the ground breaking, square toe Wannabe loafer.

His reinterpretation of this style has resulted in moccasins offered in burnished suede, high shine calf, and wrinkly wet-look patent material.

Most poignant perhaps is the ultimate, luxurious Hand Painted python which references Patrick's iconic snakeskin loafers that ruled the 90's.

Cox even presents a loafer with a butch hand cast bulldog snaffle, a nod to LATHBRIDGE’s bulldog logo.

The styles are substantiated with either a double thick leather sole or a chunky crepe wedge with a brothel creeper feel. The group also comprises a lace up ankle boot and a chukka.

Celebrities including model and actress Liz Hurley, actor Paul Sculfor, fashion blogger, Doina Ciobanu and former X Factor contestants, Alien Uncovered attended the launch.

Eclectic in its mix of quirky colours, imaginative materials and retro references this collection contains jewel-tone supple suede sneakers trimmed with Jimmy Hendrix inspired gold frogging and 70's mock croc slip-ons finished with burnished bulldog buckles.

Cox has also made hand crafted sneakers and high tops in decadent alligator or opulent hand painted python.

There are also exquisite soft suede and pony skin loafers, sneakers and chukkas as well as multi-strap shoes and boots with mismatched buckles giving them a vintage feel.

The collection is designed in London, handcrafted in Italy and features eco-friendly veg-tanned leathers.

It’s a collection that reflects on Patrick Cox’s 25 plus years designing shoes, while also looking forward to the future of LATHBRIDGE.
