Bryant wasn't over keen on having his photo taken, but he was kind enough to let SMM take a photo of his fantastic footwear. Italian fashion house Marni is renowned for adding a stylish twist to classic pieces and these loafers were absolutely no exception.
Stewart was hard to miss in what has been a very quiet week in Melbourne (where are all you guys hiding?). In town from Hong Kong on a lightning visit to see friends, Stewart was busy falling in love with our Melbourne way of life. Just as we were falling for his style and his sensational Dries Van Noten printed canvas derby's. Stewart's style advice? "Don't think about it, just go with what you love".
James, co-owner of 'Up There' store, was snapped wearing a pair of Italian leather Montebelluna Hiker LX buffalo boots. These limited edition hi-tops from the Vault footwear series are made in partnership between Vans and luxury Italian shoe brand Diemme. The California skate heritage of classic Vans has been combined with Italian shoemaker Diemme's materials and handmade techniques.
Donni was on a brief visit home to Melbourne between projects in Bali and Bangkok when we bumped into him this week. Despite spending the better part of 10 years in Asia steering some of the best clubs, he clearly hasn't forgotten how to run the classic Melbourne winter look. It was the superbly cut collectable G-Star denim trench that caught our attention, but as we got talking we could see the whole package was a quintessentially Melbourne streetwear masterclass. The sharply cut black calf Chelsea's just reminding us how easy good style can be.
We busted Melbourne brothers Jim & Tony on a little mid-week shopping spree yesterday and couldn't resist their infectious energy for style. The boys told us they are exploring their tastes and favourite labels - believe us when we say they were human encyclopedia's of cool. Clearly both have a taste for quality footwear. Jim is wearing a limited edition suede Roux derby by Loake Bros & Tony his favourite, a Common Projects polished binder derby. Long Live Melbourne Style.
We bumped into James yesterday as he was whipping around town running errands before heading overseas to attend the wedding of a friend. A Sydney 'expat' now enjoying the Melbourne life, James is very much our type of man. Full of character and energy, and always well put together. His beautifully cut and understated three-piece, the full knit tie and of course a classic chestnut Dior derby to bring it all together on a wild and wet Melbourne morning.
