Emirates Man - - STYLE -

t comes as no sur­prise that Paul An­drew knows a thing or two about fab­ric – his fa­ther was an up­hol­sterer at the Queen’s week­end place, Wind­sor Cas­tle. An­drew has had a few royal ap­point­ments of his own, too, and came to promi­nence when his se­nior col­lec­tion for women was recog­nised by Vogue. Stints with Alexan­der McQueen, Nar­ciso Ro­driguez, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan fol­lowed.

His in­au­gu­ral men’s col­lec­tion fea­tures dress shoes on lug soles, sneak­ers, and patent evening shoes ac­cented with glazed tejus lizard, with a colour pal­ette of black, mid­nights, camel and grey, punc­tu­ated by bright white and bril­liant blue. Fab­rics range from rugged buf­falo grain leather and tex­tured scotch grain, to Italian silk vel­vet and high-shine ex­otics.

It's a de­but col­lec­tion mo­ti­vated by those who ap­pre­ci­ate crafts­man­ship and qual­ity, but who also in­ter­pret clas­sic style rules dif­fer­ently. Jeans with dress shoes, a tux with sneak­ers; this line will en­cour­age your fur­ther ex­per­i­men­ta­tion.

The Paul An­drew men's col­lec­tion is avail­able ex­clu­sively in the Mid­dle East at Level Shoes and lev­elshoes. com Dhs2,420
