New York City (NY) USA – Inspired by man’s exploration of the physical world and the drive to discover, understand and produce, the WANT Les Essentiels Spring/Summer 2017 collection injects luxury into the essentials of every day life.
The perfectly formed, ultra-functional collection provides today’s global nomad with a readjusted sense of comfort and opulence for life’s many journeys. Elevated staples in the season’s timeless colour palette of Cognac, Mahogany, Sand, Grey Caviar, Deep Sea and Navy Suede are designed for the modern explorer as he seeks new horizons while still finding pleasure in every carefully considered detail.
The collection includes new travel-focused pieces such as the Marti, a deep-set open tote, and the Fellini travel case, a roomier version of the brand’s popular Kenyatta dopp kit with cleverly designed zipper compartments. Classic WANT styles such as the Kastrup backpack, Douglas holdall, O’Hare shopper tote and Trudeau computer bag have been reimagined in suede, nubuck, leather, linen and this season’s refined, light gray pebble ultra-suede — all modernist materials inspired by concreate, stone and sand.
The WANT Les Essentiels footwear collection continues to expand this season, designed with simplicity, durability and exploration in mind. Endlessly versatile, the collection is constructed with Memory Foam foot beds and midsoles for added comfort and cushioning. WANT favorites such as the Marcos loafer and Lennon sneaker are constructed with thoughtful attention to detail in seasonal colors of soft Cognac and Dune suede. New summer staples include the Edwards desert boot with a smart aesthetic and unrivalled comfort; the Tesla half-oxford with a sleek, slim profile; the Smith, a classic sneaker which can be dressed up or down; the Kotoka cutout plimsoll, the Hopkins-Mid sneaker, the Giles moccasin, and the Jobim sandal, a modern yet classic men’s sandal in striking Italian leather.
