Make a splash with Christian Kimber’s classically crafted kicks
One of the must-know names in Australian men’s fashion is causing a stir on the scene with a range of high-quality shoes and accessories. Christian Kimber manufactures goods for those who can appreciate the beauty of bespoke craftsmanship.
When it comes to luxury footwear, the name of everyone’s lips is designer Christian Kimber. Drawing influence from experience in various facets of the fashion industry as well as his own international travels, Christian became enamoured with the idea of bringing together the best ideas, textiles and production methods from different countries to create a ‘trans-national aesthetic’ with his own brand. After settling in Australia a few years back, Christian noticed an opportunity to do something exciting in the local market, putting together what would become the Christian Kimber label – a resource for luxury pieces with a well-travelled bent.
At the heart of Christian Kimber is a range of luxurious footwear that blends casual cool with a classic refinement. Latest pieces draw influences from the New York scene, with a mid-top sneaker variety called Lower Fifth joining signature styles such as the Byron and Siglo. Complementing the shoes is a range of leather goods that includes wallets, notebooks and travel accessories as well as scarves, pocket squares and bags. The vast majority of Christian Kimber’s wares are handmade in Italy from quality textiles, with Christian himself involved in the process from inception to completion.
