While unfortunately the name of the title of this post is more figuratively speaking (and thus not literal), it still goes without saying that the Stefano Bemer name and company is now coming to London to take orders on bespoke footwear, for the very first time. It was always a hope of mine that Stefano’s brand and name would grow outside of his lovely home town of Florence, Italy and the few other places that housed his shoes (mainly Japan, Korea, Germany and Russia). For me, he made amongst the most beautiful pieces of footwear that I have ever come across and it always saddened me that more people did not know about his brand, when his artistic abilities where more than deserving of world renowned recognition!!
The new owners of his brand have done a good job at taking the brand to the next level in the hopes to spread the name, artistic abilities and history of the late Stefano Bemer. In doing so, they have partnered with the esteemed gentleman’s outfitters New & Lingwood whereby they will be hosting a private champagne reception on Thursday the 26th of September, from 6pm-8:30pm, to not only introduce his brand to the people of London but also to take orders for those that have always been keen on obtaining a pair of his shoes.
I only have 5 tickets to hand out (all with a +1), so the first 5 people to email me at [email protected] will be the first to get those tickets and thus be on the list to come to the event. I of course will be there, so I look forward to seeing those that decide to come.
