Govan Originals Launches For AW13
Launching their inaugural collection in time for the forthcoming season, Scottish shoe label Govan Originals aims to bring a dash heritage luxe to our stride this autumn with its exceptional offering of stylish footwear.
Handcrafted by skilled cobblers in the Clydebank town of Govan, each meticulously made style is named after a figure from Britain’s illustrious scientific and industrial past. Every design reflects the label’s unique aesthetic, fusing traditional British heritage with a distinctly modern edge.
Amongst the standout creations from the debut collection is the ‘Arkwright’, which features a quirky combination of fine calf leathers paired with the most traditional of Scottish fabrics: tweed. A versatile design that will sit perfectly with both casual and formal looks, the ‘Arkwright’ is a smart nod to menswear’s current penchant for country pursuits.
Destined to be on the style radar of gentleman with a more directional nature, the ‘Naughton’ is a classic style brought bang up-to-date with its natty colour scheme and paneled inserts. In an eye-catching royal blue, this sleek lace-up’s off-beat sensibility stems from its contrasting Jaffa-orange tongue and layered wood heel. Ideal for injecting a healthy dose of colour into a conventional footwear palette of browns and blacks, the ‘Naughton’ is guaranteed to put a quirky spring in your step.
Attention to detail is in the brand’s design DNA, with each shoe featuring a signature suede lining and a unique serial number inscribed by the craftsman who fashioned it.
With the AW13 range consisting of more than thirty options, each with its own individual character, a pair of Govan Originals is guaranteed to be at the top of every footwear aficionado’s sartorial agenda for AW13.
The debut range of Govan Originals will soon be available from govanoriginals.com.
