The London Super Trunk 2017 – The Results

But what that means is that my time is quite limited for long blog posts and whatnot. Therefore, while I would have liked to make my own post about the London Super Trunk that Jesper and I put on, I […]

London Super Trunk Show — Brand Showcase #9 — Yanko/Skolyx Shoes

Yanko is a Mallorca-based (Spanish) company which the founders of both Carmina and Meermin used worked for back in the days (all three coming from the original Albaladejo family/shoe brand). The three companies have nothing to do with each other nowadays, although many of them share the same last name. The Yanko brand was actually a giant in the shoe industry up until the 80’s, and made over a million pairs of shoes a year (which […]

While Stefano had developed the bespoke business into a successful name, Melani has helped […]

This makes the range of shoes that Vass offers very impressive, and almost everyone can find models that they like (and I believe can even make […]
