Paris based shoe label PHILEO by 19-year-old Philéo Landowski proposes a new take on high-end footwear. Launched in 2019, the label strives to create retro-inflected collections with minimum ecological impact, improving each collection’s carbon footprint and using non-animal materials, like canvas or plant-based alternatives to leather. From the ancient Greek meaning “I Love”, PHILEO brings the designer’s passions to the surface by transforming his emotions into a collection.
For FW22, PHILEO will introduce a line entitled “KIDS” presenting his classic 006 BALLERINA & 005 DERBY in fun edible colorways reminiscent of the designer’s childhood. Both shoes will come in pink & yellow faux suede and be available from sizes 31 to 39.
Vaquera started in 2013 as fashion fan fiction, a way for founder Patric DiCaprio to explore his obsession with clothing. Since 2016, with the addition of Bryn Taubensee and now in partnership with Dover Street Market, that fantasy has become much more real. Vaquera means cowgirl in Spanish, after a nickname Patric was given while washing dishes. The name now represents a New York collective making garments for the characters of their city, both actual and imagined, and their very real customers across the world. What began as a way to explore American tropes of dressing has become a signature look in itself.
Since its conception, Vaquera has staged shows across the city, whether in boxing gyms, the subway or the East Village’s Ukrainian National home. The label’s designs have been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as part of both Camp: Notes on Fashion and In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, a night of Vaqueraoke was staged at MoMA PS1, and they have accrued stockists and clients worldwide.
Victor Weinsanto, whose namesake line launched in 2020, trained at Atelier Chardon Savard Paris and has worked at Y/Project, Maxime Simoens and Chloé. He credits two years of working with Jean Paul Gaultier as his most formative experience in the fashion industry, His training as a dancer imbued him with love of performing arts and brought cabaret themes and joyful spirit to his presentations.
Victor presented his fifth collection on February 28th as part of the official calendar of the Paris Fashion Week.
