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.

Pastry vs. Johnny Cupcakes?

From John­ny Cup­cakes:

Ran­dom­ly putting baked items on t‑shirts and hav­ing an entire brand revolve around it is free for any­one to do. I don’t own food. How­ev­er, I did indeed start this brand of mine 8 years ago, hav­ing it’s main focus be revolved around cup­cakes and any­thing asso­ci­at­ed with it. In the inde­pen­dent t‑shirt indus­try, I believe I was the first per­son to go all out with this cup­cake / bak­ing motif. I’ve made a tremen­dous amount of sac­ri­fices and risks to make it the home­grown, fam­i­ly run, fun, lim­it­ed busi­ness that it is, since I dropped out of high school and sold my t‑shirts out of my rusty car. With my brands main focus on my cus­tomers and their expe­ri­ence, I think I’ve been doing a pret­ty swell job at it.
