On January 25th, Cole Haan will launch the third installment of its LunarGrand collaboration with fragment design, first at Dover Street Market Ginza, Japan, followed by Cole Haan SoHo and other retailers globally on February 6th. Building on the December issuing of a new saddle shoe and penny tassel loafer, this release brings two additional new styles: The Cole Haan & fragment design LunarGrand Long Wing and the Cole Haan & fragment design LunarGrand Venetian Bit. Innovative hybrids of traditional men’s shoe and street-ready modern footwear, both styles update classic looks for the 21st century.
For the first-ever LunarGrand Long Wing brogue, fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara created three colorways: Black grain leather with gray midsole, white grain leather with white midsole, and blue suede with black midsole. All three shoes are made of genuine cow leather, including the full leather lining and full-length cover of the Foam latex footbed. The distinctive perforation patterns are inspired by traditional brogues, the ornamented footwear style that made its way from Highland bogs to fashionable London drawing rooms. A less conventional accent, the longer wing adds a hint of sleekness, and LunarGrand midsoles help make this a lighter, more versatile version of the classic brogue that’s ideally suited to the modern moment.
Meanwhile, the Cole Haan & fragment design LunarGrand Venetian Bit (the first-ever LunarGrand shoe in this style) puts a contemporary spin on another international footwear staple. Combining functionality with cosmopolitan savoir-faire, this handsome slip-on is available in two colorways: tan suede with gold bit and navy suede with silver bit. Both styles are accented with white midsoles. Cole Haan & fragment designs fresh update provides a reinterpretation of the classic style, a moccasin-seamed loafer with the unmistakable equestrian-inspired tongue detail. More than an old-world leisure shoe, it’s stylish footwear you can slip into anywhere, from Prince Street to Portofino.
