The great thing about having an all black uniform to work is that I can easily transition a work look into an evening wardrobe. It is really handy, seldom that I will have to go home and change for dinner, drinks or other occasions after work. You may want to swap one or two things to completely turn it around, some people would swap a jacket, change shoes and or add a red lip to finish off their look, depending on the occasion, in my case I did not change much with except the bag - from blue to black, I felt a black bag would ground the look much more.
Standfor is striking up conversations with their unique footwear! They describe their shoes "as not just a footwear, they represent action, people who walk for a reason". Their unique designs are made with micro fibre as their main component and it's leather free. The unusual gap between the feet and the outsole of the shoes, is a patented feature they have called channel which enhances the shoe ventilation and allows you to walk more lightly with greater comfort.
Aside from their unique designs, their shoes have another aspect to them - each of their collection brings you a new statement, one that in my opinion is subtle, suggestive with their smoke less collection "They communicate ideals you support" based on the believe that issues must be spread, in order to be felt and then solved. My view on brands making meaningful statements with their products is that the products themselves should be enough to attract people - Standfor has mastered this with their unique designs of shoes. Looking at the shoes above you would not notice right away that the first cool grey shoes with a classic feel is imparting a message about smoke or the beautiful sea blue coloured shoes are about the lungs and breathing. The scientist part of me loves the meaning behind each of their design. As fashion pieces/statements alone, I love these shoes, the quirky loving in me gets really excited at the site of them.
I have collaborated with Standfor to present to you their exclusive pre-sale campaign!
