Creative Recreation is going above and beyond with their new high-end line called "The Collection-Made In Italy." Consisting of stylish, tailored shoes made with Italy's finest materials and quality craftsmanship, the line offers competition to brands such as Common Projects. Staying true to their reputation for edgy design, The Collection brings a fresh style with bold colors, patent and suede leathers, hand stitching, exposed zippers and hidden laces.
Rich Cofinco and Robert Nand, the pair responsible for the design of both The Collection and Creative Recreation, channeled their passion for traveling and Italian culture to come up with the new looks. While it's their love of footwear that shows through in both lines, The Collection caters to a more sophisticated and fashion-forward part of the market.
Naturally prices (ranging from $300-$400) follow suit, but with superior materials, manufacturing and design, the shoes are worth the money. Available in August, The Collection will be sold in high-end boutiques like Barneys NY, Liberty, Harvey Nichols, Woodley and Bunny, Carve, Petra Teufel and online at Oki-Ni.
