The Hermès owned British cobbler puts on a heritage-inspired presentation for its Spring/Summer 2015 men's footwear collection

John Lobb's latest collection began with a presentation of hand-drawn animations depicting a well-groomed man moving between London's iconic locations: Portobello and Shoreditch.

Northampton-based band The Temples provided the audio for the preview, setting a tone that emphasises a connection to the location of the brand's ready-to-wear factory.

Lobb managed to uniquely twist tailored footwear by showing brogues, boots and monk straps in a range of alternative suede leathers and hues, as well as displaying wing-tipped loafers and creamy grey suede driving shoe.

Chief Executive Renaud Paul-Dauphin mentions: "Bespoke is a big trend... Everyone wants to be different."
