Footballers Leon Best and Colin Kazim Richards have collaborated with Dutch designer Brian Nickson to create a debut collection of high-end men’s high tops and low tops. The trio hosted a star-studded party at Club Ten on 4th February 2014, to officially launch their new brand, L’homme de Maison.  Although the launch party was an intimate event, hosted by Reggie Yates, celebs such as Rough Copy, Kano, Wretch 32 and Lethal Bizzle helped make it a night to remember!

L’homme de Maison is the inaugural brand venture for the celebrated sportsmen and their first personal venture into fashion design. Leon and Colin’s love of fashion and their interest in design were key factors in their decision to launch their own collection.  The duo sought the expertise of Dutch designer Brian Nickson, after commissioning him to design their clothes on previous occasions. The trio started their collaboration after a meeting of minds on instagram.

Best said of the project, “Shoes are a passions of mine and I have wanted to launch my own high end men’s fashion brand for a long time. I wanted to create a shoe that could be worn everyday but that also wouldn’t look out of place on a night out.  Working on this collection alongside Brian and Colin has given me a great artistic outlet and I am really pleased with our final collection.”

Nickson added, “Leon, Colin and I work well together because we all appreciate the same things aesthetically – a refined and contemporary look.  Aesthetics and comfort are equally important; each pair of our shoes are fashion forward and of high quality, produced using the best materials delivering the ultimate in comfort and fit.   I’m excited about the demand we’ve already had and we are already busy working together on the next collection.”

Best, Richards & Nickson wanted the collection to feature dynamic colours, detailed design elements, clean lines and luxurious aesthetics. An opulent style and premium quality is fundamental to the collection.

Best concludes, “Our philosophy is to promote individuality in a world faced with mostly mass-produced choices. We believe there are a number of factors, which make a truly luxurious product: the design, the textile selection and the craftsmanship.  L’homme de Maison’s collection is expertly crafted in Europe where the skilled artisans pride themselves on producing high quality leather goods which will stand the test of time through the use of traditional manufacturing methods.  We select only the best quality materials to create truly luxurious footwear. Our leathers are sourced from the finest tanneries in Europe, carefully cured to season their unique qualities, a bespoke look and feel and natural beauty.  All three of us have very high standards and we expect our customer’s expectations to be the same.”

The collection is available internationally through www.lhommedemaison.com
