Right now, matching is in. Intentionally coordinated outfits show people you care for how you look, take pride in your appearance and, most of all, have the ability and vision to put clothing items together. we’re not the only ones to notice this trend. Melbourne-based premium accessory brand, Bellroy, have teamed up with CLAE, a footwear brand out of LA, this season. Together, this collaboration has delivered a collection of matching footwear and gorgeous accessories, including a wallet and key holder.
Sporting matching items from a designer collection intended to be seen together saves you the time and hassle of searching pieces out for yourself. It also gives you a confidence boost knowing these combinations are what designers would choose themselves. Each piece in the CLAE X Bellroy collection updates on classic styles and sports an image synonymous with each of the brands.
The first piece in the collection is the One Piece CLAE X Bellroy shoes. These sneakers are available in four different colors and sport a one-piece leather upper with hand stitched accents. They also include a molded, EVA footbed to provide comfort through breathability. This is all built on top of the modern rubber sole. The look is completed by flat, waxed laces, which add intrigue without overpowering the unique style of the casual sneaker.
The second piece of the collection, the Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet, utilizes smart design to reduce unwanted bulk in your pocket. By eliminating unnecessary flaps and layers of leather, Bellroy and CLAE have been able to deliver a slimmer and more comfortable wallet. But don’t worry, it still contains everything you need in a wallet, including two quick access card slots, an internal pull tab for the card you use least frequently and back pockets for stashing cash. This accessory is also made from premium, environmentally-certified leather and comes with an accompanying 3-year warranty.
The collection is completed by the key sleeve, which is also constructed from a single piece of leather with a recognizable logo.
Together, these three pieces deliver style to suit almost any outfit (at the office or on date night) without overpowering or taking you into the realms of ridicule. What Bellroy and CLAE have managed to achieve in this collection of shoes and matching accessories is a blend of functionality and subtle class so rarely seen on the designer level.
