New Reek Cardis and Gos Desert Boots!

October 3, 2010

Riq Graves of Reek and Gospel Voom of Gos Custom Design are two of my favourite male designers.  They both excel at sculpting and texturing, producing consistently high quality, stylish and fun products.  Today I am featuring a new release from each of these talented guys.  From Gos Custom Footwear, the brand new Desert Boots, and from Reek, the Papercut Cardigans. Since both items can be worn by both men and women, I created a couple of looks for each gender.

The Desert Boots from Gos are as beautifully made and scripted as you would expect from Gos. If you fatpack, which I highly recommend, you can mix and match the soles, laces and boot colours. They come in a variety of colours in leather, suede and 2 tartans.
I think Gos was surprised when I was so keen on these, as he was thinking of them as a men’s shoe. And they are a great casual men’s shoe, that perfect place between sneakers and dress shoes. But if you were around in the 80s, you will remember that women can and did wear these shoes too. I love them with these casual looks. Although they come sized for men, they are resize scripted you can easily size them down to fit a size 0 foot, as I did here.

The Reek Papercut Cardigans are another great casual piece that will soon become a staple in your wardrobe.  With an amazing 17 colours to choose from, these cardigans come with 3 styles of collar (plain, hood down and hood up), two styles of cuff (plain and rolled), and 2 body sizes for women. All the pieces come in men’s and women’s for one price.

Both of these items are going to be solid staples of my fall wardrobe. Honestly I just kept making outfits with them, I probably could have shown you a dozen looks for women.
The men’s not so much, but that’s only because I don’t have that many men’s clothes to make outfits with!

For a limited time, you can scoop up the Gos Desert Boots in Sand for just 195L on the new Marketplace,  all the other colours and the fatpack are there too, great to treat yourself or for gift giving!
