Vivienne Westwood - Rainforest appeal 2011.

May 19th 2011

Dame Vivienne Westwood has never been one to shy away from expressing her feelings and standing up for what she believes is right, a trait which has seen the legendary fashion designer grow into a respected speaker and universal inspiration. Taking time from her hectic schedule surrounding the launch of her S/S-2011 collections, Vivienne Westwood has joined forces with renowned magazine, Marie Claire, to help raise awareness on the importance of saving the world's rainforests.

The quirky Queen of fashion self-styled a photoshoot using old clothes and fabrics to create stunning looks with minimal waste, teaching us how to recycle those bits and pieces we thought we'd NEVER wear!

Yuketen Footwear - Available Now...

May 17th 2011

Possibly the most anticipated brand of the year, well footwear brand anyway, has finally arrived at Triads. We told you in our last post about the impending arrival of Yuketen and believe us when we tell you, the shoes look better than we could ever of imagined.

Yuketen Wingtip Ghille Moc Shoe - Crepe Wedge Sole - Dark Brown Leather

Is this a brogue? How about a Ghillie brogue? Or is it simply Yuketen`s classic Country Ranger shoe?? Who knows. But it`s certainly one hell of a shoe. Featuring a handmade premium leather upper, the Wingtip Ghille Moc Shoe definitely features all the characteristics of say the Country Ranger, or the Blucher, but the addition of a part wingtip brogue detailing and Ghillie lace system makes them a standout style.

To add to the overall solid look of the style, we have chosen a Crepe Wedge outsole in a natural honey colour which looks perfect with the dark brown upper.

Yuketen Maine Guide Oxford Shoe - Crepe Wedge Sole - Natural Brown Leather

The Maine Guide style has never looked this good! Featuring all the usual features of Yuketen`s classic silhouette such as premium leather hand-stitched upper, metal eyelets and Rawhide leather laces, the introduction of the buckle strap gives it that subtle point of difference.

Sitting atop a very hard wearing Crepe Wedge sole unit, this is definitely one for the purists!!

Yuketen Maine Guide Oxford Shoe - Vibram Christy Sole - DB Blue Leather

In a special make-up with the summer months in mind, Yuketen`s legendary Maine Guide Boot has lost its head so to speak, and has been produced here in a special low-cut version.

They feature a beautifully soft handmade blue leather upper with contrasting leather laces and metal eyelets. They addition of the hand-stitched Vibram Christy sole gives the boot a more solid feel.

Each pair is totally handmade in the USA, in Hermosa Beach, California to be exact, and the premium quality of the leathers and construction is evident upon inspection. As a nice little added touch, each pair comes in a handmade fabric shoe bag.

With regards to sizing, Yuketen is pretty standard fitting and we would recommend purchasing your regular size. They all come in a standard mens width D and the UK size runs one full size down from US sizing so a size UK 7 would be a size US 8 and so on. 

You can view and purchase each style by clicking on each style picture/link or you can view the full collection in its entireity here.

Summer jewellery - with an edge...

May 11th 2011

Season after season we witness the launch of unique collections from Vivienne Westwood, showcasing head-turning pieces fusing timeless charm with current trends. Arguably the most anticipated of these collections is the jewellery, which touches on pretty hearts, diamante detailing and delicate pearls as statement pieces that are repeated throughout the years.

Each season, Westwood breaks the boundries and launches a line that will make an appearance only once, making it highly exclusive, collectable and sought after. This summer is the turn of the fabulous Memento Cord story - a chunky, textured necklace and bracelet set with a definite edge. The range combines toned metal with a thick plaited cord, complete with a black enamel medalion and bold Orb emblem.

Whether worn to introduce attitude to your summer florals or to maximise your grungey style, the Memento Cord collection is an absolute must-have...

Yuketen Footwear - Arriving Very Shortly!!!

May 11th 2011

Though we generally keep tight lipped on the introduction of new brands, we thought we just had to tell you about the forthcoming arrival of the beautiful Yuketen footwear collection. It is certainly a collection we have followed for some time and felt the time was now right to house the collection both online and in store. We will keep a little quiet on the exact styles which are due to arrive for now, though here is a brief history of the Yuketen brand and its founding father Yuki Matsuda.

Since 1985, Matsuda has paid homage to the American crafts and traditions by treasure hunting for outstanding examples of footwear and luggage in remote locales spread out across the rolling Appalachians to the high Sierras.

During Yuki's quests for American rarities, he befriended several footwear, luggage, leather, and blanket artisans whose personalities and skills are more beautiful and pure than their output. Yuketen exists from the lessons and heritage gleaned from these men and women.

Each Yuketen article begins with upmost thought and research and is constructed solely by aged hands of high-skill and years of experience. They chose only the most durable and precious raw materials such as an all-vegetable tanned leather, which is exclusive to Yuketen products, or an American naked leather unique for its heavy, thick and soft characteristics. Yuketen products finishing touches are made by the owners individual insignias; the outline of their foot print, crease-marks from the bend of their ankle, imprints from their hands, colour shed from their skin, mementos of their lifetime.

The collection is on route to us as we speak and will be available to purchase very shortly.
