The seasons’ men’s hi-top available at Harvey Nichols presents a luxury choice of trainer for Autumn/Winter and more importantly for Christmas party time. These creations work perfectly for both casual daywear or to dress up for a night on the town.
My favourites handpicked below are from Philip Plein, Guiseppe Zanotti and the most recent addition to A/W13 collection, Alejandro Ingelmo, which are 100% statement pieces, not for the faint-hearted and never to go unnoticed!
Alejandro Ingelmo’s rich knowledge of traditional craftsmanship originates directly from his family’s heritage; his use of classic silhouettes in exotic materials has quickly made him a cult following with fashion editors and celebrities.
The TRON glittered hi-top upper is woven from iridescent fabric that reflects light from multiple angles. The TRON black and blue high gloss hi-top upper patent leather is meticulously cut to move from light to dark, both with the signature side and toe panels.
TRON glittered hi-top trainer, £405
TRON black and blue high glossed leather hi-top trainer, £495.
Giuseppe Zanotti creations inspired by art and music combined with his invaluable manufacturing background, soon made Zanotti a global super brand launching his Giuseppe Homme line, dedicated to style-conscious men.
London metallic python effect hi-top trainer with contrast patent panels, £605.
London black leather hi-top trainers with contrast silver patent panels, £535.
Philip Plein’s collections are seen as works of art and stand for notility and perfection, striving to set trends not follow them. Plein’s use of his classic skull applique can be seen as a signature thread running through his entire collection.
White leather hi-top trainer with contrast silver applique and trim, £420.
Black leather hi-top trainer with contrast black gloss applique and trim, £420.
All hi-tops are available at Harvey Nichols Birmingham, for more information see in store or call the Birmingham store on: 0121 616 6000.
