Few wardrobe staples are quite so enduring as the white sneaker – and Lane Crawford’s new range brings this classic footwear squarely into the here and now.
If this season’s menswear shows are anything to go by, it’s clear that crisp, white sneakers aren’t going anywhere. As menswear takes an undeniable shift towards casual elegance, runways and street-style stars alike are featuring this modern staple everywhere we turn. And who can blame them? These sporty classics can be styled with almost any item in the wardrobe – from your favourite casual suit to denim jeans or a pair of shorts.
This season, Lane Crawford features an array of sneaker choices that augment this perennial favourite with luxe materials and vibrant details. While maintaining a minimal, normcore sensibility, the updated classics in our range offer a refined yet unique take on the white sneaker through their eye-catching details.
Alexander McQueen’s leather platform sneakers add an unexpected dimension to the classic silhouette, while the tough, buckle accent on Joshua Sanders’ kicks create a conceptual, graphic impact. These unique details mean the sneakers pair well with more unusual trouser shapes – like this season’s wide-legged cropped culotte styles.
Bolder details can be seen on our Pierre Hardy high-tops, featuring perforated leather with coloured, suede trimming and metal eyelets. Meanwhile, models like Paul Smith’s ‘Nastro’ sneakers, made with premium calf leather, maintain a sleek, super-clean aesthetic, with subtle details including ecru side-wall stitching and gold eyelets.
