Genius Photography by Ascot Shoes

This one is clever in many ways. I feel that it is quite reminiscent of a […]

London Super Trunk Show — Brand Showcase #7 — Vass Shoes

Hungarian Shoemaker, Vass Shoes was founded in 1978 by Mr. László Vass. Even though the brand still keeps the old Austro/Hungarian shoemaking tradition close at heart they have managed to attract a wider customer base with more modern lasts and designs and quite a vast Made to Order program. 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 […]
