Rad Russel + Simon Carter Capsule Collection Official Launch - Media Invitation (200415)

I attended a special meet-and-greet media showcase with UK designer Simon Carter at Rad Russel flagship store in Plaza Singapura. 

Rad Russel shoes reflect a London stylish design philosophy that contributes timeless elegance and enduring styles. Founded by a businessman of the same name in 1980s, the Simon Carter label is stocked in most major British departmental outlets.

There are two styles of shoe in the collection: The Wholecut which takes its name from the outer being made of one whole piece of leather. The second is the Derby which has the eyelet's sitting above the upper on two separate pieces of leather. The upper of the shoe is calf leather. The lining is sheepskin leather. This allows the imprint of the foot to be taken quickly by the shoe for increased comfort. Fewer weeks of having to wear them in! The Heel inner is suede to increase grip and comfort. Durable and Soft latex cushions covered with sheepskin leather offer a supportive inner and help maintain comfort around the foot’s arches. Anti-slip rubber outer-sole in the signature Simon Carter house Paisley. Ideal for London weather as the rubber provides essential grip and durability as compared to a leather sole. The shoes are retailing at S$268.

At the end of the event, I also had a free shoe shining service by Mister Minit!
