The Empire’s New Grooves
A brand’s signature is often taken as a token of authenticity.
shoes for women are known for their telltale red soles, while the brand’s leather goods for men are emblazoned with a lavish coat of arms. This season sees an update of the latter with stars, studs, pearls and the initials “CL” stacked up into a crown-like design. This is actually quite fitting as the brand has famously dubbed itself an empire—of fine accessories and footwear, that is. This spring/ summer, the new écusson (French for coat of arms) adorns the Bagdamon tote, Explorafunk backpack, TricTrack portfolio and Benech Reporter bag, as seen in the moody fashion campaign shot by Casper Sejersen.
