For the Urban Man: Robert Clergerie Homme


Leading French heritage brand Robert Clergerie has launched a line exclusively for men.

Robert Clergerie Homme is rooted in tradition, but made for the urban man who posseses confidence and a youthful spirit. When Robert Clergerie created his company, he purchased legendary French atelier J. Fenestrier, skilled in providing custom-fit men's shoes since 1895. Clergerie built on the already famous brand, adding an innovative and creative spirit and his architectural knowledge to launch a line of masculine shoes for women that have since become iconic. 

Robert Clergerie became well known for his focus on sharp, architectural lines, masculine heels and sleek looks. “We started with the volumes from the 20s and 30s, lasts from that period. I fell in love with this aerodynamic side, and started from those lines," said Roland Mouret, artistic director. 

The collection comprises 16 styles, including derbies, oxfords, boots and Chelsea boots, made traditionally through Goodyear and Blake, with a latex sole made of pure Hevea milk. Other features of the collection include hand-pleated leather details, subtle uppers, graphic design, flat welts and slightly slanted heels. 

If women love the androgynous styles the brand has also released six near-identical styles in the women's collection.
