The Edouard Collection: Strolling Around Paris
Step by step, J.M. Weston is reasserting the codes of a shoe inspired by the bootmaking tradition and adapted to the contemporary world. For this collection, Olivier Saillard, Artistic Director, Image and Culture, immersed himself in the history of the House, and particularly in the archives of the 1930s and 1940s. With the “Édouard” line, named in homage to the founder by JM Weston, Édouard Blanchard, the style is built beyond trends, more timeless than ever.
A derby and brogue, as well as a Balmoral ankle boot, make their entry among the House's formal models. Particular care given to shape, materials, details and finishes: a carefully chosen box calfskin , a sleek and elegant line, precision Goodyear stitching, and quilted technique on the upper for a seamless effect.
