Christian Peau Washed Leather Sneaker Boots

Sexy.

Chris­t­ian Peau is a Japan­ese fash­ion house whose design is under­stood to bridge the gap between mod­ern avant-garde and clas­si­cal artisan-based fash­ion. Unlike many cut­ting edge Japan­ese design­ers that have emerged from the last 10 years, Peau’s is much more Euro­pean in nature. His influ­ences lie in the tra­di­tionl arti­sans from the early 1800s who were under­stood to be mas­ters in their trade. Drawn from tra­di­tional shoe­mak­ing and leather mas­ter craftsmen,Christian Peau has rein­vented the avant-garde in a mod­ern and beau­ti­ful manner.

The empha­sis is on hand­made leather garments—each shoe is made by hand in Japan with an assort­ment of hand-stained, painted and washed leathers that are com­pounded and nailed together for a truly unique outcome.
