How would you sum up the brand?
Heschung is a high-end French footwear manufacturer whose timeless styles reflect current trends while perpetuating the brand’s heritage.
Can you describe the Spring/Summer 2018 collection in a nutshell?
It is a thoroughly elegant and laidback collection. It includes classic styles revisited, with Commando and double leather soles, in light-coloured materials that will develop a subtle patina over time.
Is there a style you find particularly exciting at the moment?
If I had to choose one from the Spring/Summer collection, it would be Orme in asphalt grey suede. I’m particularly fond of suede. It often gets bad press, wrongly, because in fact it requires less care than a smooth leather. The style in question is a timeless and understated derby with a leather sole. I like the colour, which is a change from black or brown, and which goes perfectly with most colours in the male wardrobe.
