French luxury apparel retailer Maison Kitsuné has announced its entrance into the world of footwear with its debut collection of shoes for both men and women.
The new line features four styles, handmade from Italian leather, including one unisex penny loafer, one men’s lace-up boot, one women’s ankle boot and one Mary Jane pump.
Accoridng to Kitsuné co-founders and creative directors Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, the timing for a footwear line was just right. “The launch of a footwear collection was a natural step in our development. With it, we wanted to offer wardrobe essentials that were masculine and feminine as well as chic and laid-back,” the pair said in a joint statement.
Each silhouette will be available in limited seasonal colorways throughout the year, debuting in stores and online starting May 2.
