Genius Photography by Ascot Shoes

I love clever photography for shoes. It is one of my passions, to be honest. And while things look simple from the outside, seeing a shot like this by Ascot Shoes of his Kaan models by Vass, actually coming up with the ideas and the ability to carry it out is not always as simple as it would appear. This one is clever in many ways. I feel that it is quite reminiscent of a […]

Green Museum Calf – VASS

  Green is good! Or was that “Greed is Good”? I don’t know, but same thing!! Hahaha! I am in a cheerful mood thanks to the sun finally showing itself across the planet (of Europe) and the endorphin’s are kicking in making me unusually optimistic despite not having reasons to be. Currently I am in Stockholm, Sweden having my trunk show at Skoaktiebolaget and was discussing with the boys here the prevalence of museum calf […]

Ascot Shoes – Online Shoe Store

The idea of just owning an all black or brown pair of shoes for your wardrobe is changing . Two tones and unconventional colored shoes are quickly creeping their way not only onto the shelves of once known conservative shoe companies, but are also spreading across the internet like a virus thanks to all of the companies that offer MTO services.
