Jeffrey Campbell Shoes

Oct 24th 2012

In their own words, 'Since 2000, Jeffrey Campbell has been capturing the essence of the street'. Its a bold statement but none the less its one that we wholeheartedly agree with. Never before have we seen a shoe brand that perfectly encapsulates a whole culture and appeals to almost every fashion savvy woman in some respect. Jeffrey Campbell began as a small family owned company and although it retains the same ideals it has become a global name stepping past trends and instead drawing inspiration from everywhere.

Its a cutting edge brand that we here at Triads fully believe in. W haven't been this excited over footwear for a long while now so if we're going on a little we apologise! We've just taken delivery of three of the most coveted models including the widely blogged 'Lita Spike' silhouette. From towering heels to prickly wedges, Jeffrey Campbell shoes are unlike anything else on the market. If they look similar to anything else then its fair to say that whatever they look like has copied it from them. True trendsetters and real head turners fit for the cutting edge woman. Jeffrey Campbell shoes regularly grace the feet of the female elite and are the shoe of choice for style icons and fashion bloggers from all corners of the globe. Rather than figures and monetary worth, it is these people that Jeffrey Campbell design for. These people and you, because you are Jeffrey Campbell.

Yuketen Autumn & Winter '12

Oct 22nd 2012

The Meg Company is our type of company, not only has it facilitated the growth of two of our favourite brands (Yuketen & Monitaly) but it also has a pretty incredible slogan. The slogan in question is 'Every Stitch Has A Soul' and that's something we think is pretty powerful. One of the companies most celebrated brands, Yuketen has just blessed us with their new collection and its a fine offering to say the very least. Particularly seasonal, it puts wool and leather to good use to create timeless pieces that will inevitably come into play many seasons from now.

Yuki Matsuda, the guy behind Yuketen, is a well travelled man who draws most of his inspiration from traditional artisans from all corners of the globe. With a keen eye Yuki seeks to find the most skilled craftsmen producing their own goods to see if he can learn a thing or two himself by watching the way they go about their craft. His journey allowed him to meet many skilled manufacturers producing everything from native American blankets to vegetable tanned leather luggage. This primary research has steadily shaped Yuketen into the brand it is today and its from going out and experiencing American heritage first hand that Yuki manages to create modern pieces of future history.

The brand's most famous silhouette the Guide Boot makes a welcome return along with a slightly lower profile, the Dress Boot. Both models refernce classic Americana and are fine choices for the modern footwear conooiseur. Arguably the most notable number is the 'Camo Maine Guide Boots' which have made quite a splash on the forums leading up to their long awaited release. Whether you want to disguise your feet or not you can't deny their beauty. Whether you fancy a gentlemanly wingtip or a rugged camo boot our full Yuketen selection is now available online if you'd kindly let us (Maine) guide you over.

Howlin' By Morrison Autumn & Winter '12

Oct 15th 2012

The owls are not what they seem. Or at least that's what Belgian brand Howlin' By Morrison advised us. Here at Triads we are rather fond of the wise old bird but we can neither confirm or deny whether we trust them or not. What we do know is that Howlin' By Morrison have formed one incredible strap line even if it does give owls a bad name. Just like their strap line, the knitwear they produce is also of a remarkably high standing. Although the brand are from the land of fine chocolates (amongst other fine things) they produce all their knitwear in either Ireland or Scotland, both are lands famed for their superior woolen wonders.

Their offering is a comprehensive one which incoprporates everything from cable knits to fair isle prints and a few playful accessories along the way. Although it's an extensive range, each piece is just as fresh and exciting as the last and it's fair to say that the Morrison family know what to do with a knitting needle. Whether you fancy a basic crew neck or something a little jazzier, Howlin' By Morrison have got your back covered...in fine wool. 

Photobucket

Although it is nigh on impossible to choose a favourite, our recommendations are with the 'Birth Of The Cool' sweater which is available in four varying colours and the 'Shaker' which is a sweater with a deceptively mean name for such a soft piece. Anyway, thats our opinion, you can get nice and cosy and head over here where the full selection lies in wait. We have also kindly included a bit about the Morrison family if you're one of those inquisitive types. Oh and yeah, watch out for them owls.

Ally Capellino At Triads

Oct 08th 2012

Alison Lloyd's brand has had its fair share of history and from making uniforms for girl guides to collaborating with the Tate gallery, the story is not without its twists and turns. Ally Capellino as a brand, originally started out producing womenswear all the way back in the 80s. As time has progressed, the brand has found its niche and its become a well refined and no fuss accessory label specialising in everyday porting with a luxurious twist.

From well equipped shoulder bags to more traditionally designed duffels, our selection here at Triads is comprehensive to say the least. If you've got something to carry its fair to say Ally Capellino has got somewhere you can put it. Although she designs with her mind's eye on the past, Alison also designs with the modern man and urban commuter firmly in mind. Included in the collection are bags that can comfortably accommodate up to 17" of precious technology and offer them warmth and comfort at the very same time. In this modern age we look after our products somewhat better than we look after ourselves so an embedded laptop sleeve is naturally a welcome inclusion. In addition, we also stock a stand alone iPad sleeve which is crafted from a sturdy waxed canvas and lovingly finished with vegetable tanned leather for that premium aesthetic. From backpacks to weekend bags and from satchels to key fobs, each piece is as exceptionally well made as the last!

When it comes to Ally Capellino we get a little patriotic. It's almost like we're watching the football. Most of the bags are made right here in the UK and the canvas ones utilises a homegrown waxed cotton sourced and finished on these very shores. Where there is leather there is astonishing quality as the amazing material is the product of a lengthy dying process involving vegetable tanning. We won't bore you with details but basically a vegetable tanned leather only stands to get better with age. Like a beautiful woman or a cheese or something.

Here at Triads we are proud to house an extensive selection of these wondrous bags (and key fobs) and we are one of only a handful of forward thinking retailers with such a large offering. You can peruse all styles here and tell us what you think in the comments section.
