Behind the Brand: Pierre Hardy

“There are a lot of people who make shoes, but the question is how you make them. I hope that I take an artistic approach”

Mr Pierre Hardy

Taking inspiration from art, architecture and geometry, rather than from trends or historical influences, Mr Hardy creates some of the world’s most stylish shoes. Having studied fine art at the prestigious École Normale Supérieure in Paris, Mr Hardy initially worked as an illustrator for publications including Vanity Fair and Vogue Hommes, before taking his first design job in 1987, creating the shoes for Christian Dior. This ensured that when Mr Hardy launched his own label in 1999, he was already well versed in the intricacies of designing and producing luxurious shoes. The Pierre Hardy men’s collection debuted in 2002, with a strong emphasis on the elegant sneakers, carefully constructed from fine leathers, for which the designer is still renowned.

In addition to designing his own label, which in 2009 was admitted to the exclusive Comité Colbert (a select group of French luxury brands), Mr Hardy also collaborates with Mr Nicolas Ghesquière on the shoes at Balenciaga, and oversees the footwear and fine jewellery at Hermès. Every Tuesday, Mr Hardy teaches at the leading Duperré fashion school in Paris. “I find the exchanges with students very refreshing,” says Mr Hardy, who is constantly innovating and developing new approaches to shoe design.

Theres a Snowstorm in the Midwest…get your boots out

In my personal opinion the Red Wing Washaba boots are the most aesthetically pleasing of the Red Wings because they’re not bulky around the toe. Available at J Crew.

Here’s another personal fave the Ronnie Fieg Sebago Lighthouse boot. Good luck finding them though they were sold in limited quantities at the David Z flagship store and online

Sporting very nice casual, simple yet very classic fits. Plain tees >>>> graphic tees….Hit up American Apparel or H&M for the best quality tees for the cheapest price. Peep those Ronnie Fieg Sebago Nexus Project boat shoes. They add just the right amount of color and flair to make this very plain, effortless look pop.
