Today we will take a break from the tailored clothing in Italy and will instead head to the beaches of Melbourne. It is here where we are able Christian Kimber and his inspiration from his debut collection, The Passport Collection.
The British born designer Christian Kimber recently delivered his debut collection and lookbook called “The Passport Collection”. For the lookbook he wanted the products to be shown in their natural environment and where the inspiration came from the very first begin. He went back to where it all began in the Jan Juc beach, with the photographer Sebastian Petrovski and model Tre Samuels an early morning to be able to catch the early sunrise and beach beautiful environment.
Every single product is inspired by his travels across the world, with each piece in the shoe range having a story behind it and explaining the choice of color and texture. For some of the sneakers you are able to see a hint of a wave in the pattern, a detail inspired by the waves from the beaches of Melbourne. This is just one of many examples of personal details that Christian has put into the products of the Passport collection. The attention to details are also shown in choosing the materials for the shoes and where and how they are manufactured. Each shoe is handmade in Spain or Italy by the finest natural materials and leather-lining for the best possible comfort. This is without any doubt a debut collection to be remembered from the talented designer Christian Kimber.
So you might see the hint of a wave in the pattern of a sneaker, or a nod to a wallpaper print in piping. Ultimately, my goal was to create such beautifully made shoes that they would work no matter what you wear. Handmade with love in Spain or Italy, each shoe is classically constructed and leather-lined for ultimate quality and comfort. I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I did designing them – Christian Kimber
