London Collections Men Benthe de Vries:-

Day 2 of London Collections Men and I headed down to Jermyn Street. There were foodie stalls such as Henson & Lyderson and a Mayfair classic Fortnum & Masion. Artisans were on hand from many of the local shops to impart their specialist knowledge on the general public.
I’m not sure how I overlooked these photos of Olivia Palermo at PFW the first time round, but I did.
She’s wearing an Elie Saab jacket, possibly a nod to the designer, as this shot was taken in the Jardin des Tuileries en-route to the Elie Saab Fall show, a pair of leather overalls and an Hermès scarf. The look was finished off with a pair of Westward-Leaning sunglasses.
Photos of Paris Fashion Week 2016 taken outside the Place du Trocadero on a rainy day. Celebs include Caroline de Maigret, Anna Dello Russo, Grace Coddington, Saskia De Brauw, Jeanie Lee and Pernille Teisbaek.
During 2015 I completed a long term goal of making a pair of handmade shoes.
I enrolled on a Carreducker shoe making course and after twenty plus weeks & many blisters, I created the above. Whilst being the most expensive, they are probably the comfiest and definitely the best made pair of shoes I have ever owned.
I have now moved onto my second pair. Whilst being slightly more bespoke, they are going through every one the 200+ steps that go into a hand made pair of shoes, that will last for at least as many months.
