The Dispair Brogue 2

The Dispair Brogue 2

Entering its second season, DISPAIR London has designed a new look Brogue for SS12.

The distinct EVA outsole, a DISPAIR London signature, supple washed leather uppers and contrast striped insole transform this classic Brogue 2 style into a modern equivalent for SS12.

The lightweight materials of the Brogue 2 make this sartorial style wearable throughout the summer, lending themselves perfectly to those chino-clad months.

The Brogue 2 style is available in two colourways, Elephant Front Grey and Orca Tan.


The mod subculture, encapsulated by Lambretta, is often characterised as a fashion-obsessed and hedonistic cult of the hyper-cool young adults.

Two youth subcultures helped pave the way for mod fashion by breaking new ground; the beatniks, with their bohemian image of berets and black turtlenecks, and the Teddy Boys, from which mod fashion inherited its immaculate dandy look. The Teddy Boys paved the way for making male interest in fashion socially acceptable.

Lambretta launches SS12 with a capsule collection of suiting, true to its mod roots. In keeping with the pristine dandy look the collection comprises two and three-piece tonic suits, cut with precise lines and accented with contrast detailing. The silhouette is razor sharp, the two button jackets with narrow lapels are shorter and trousers slimmer.

PERIGOLD, the leafy fantasy for the new season. Original prints in traditional African colours, with a Western twist, and a human body and soul. Perigold offers so much.

These garments are seasonless, striding comfortably from spring to autumn.

Take a walk through St James's Park while the blossoms are bursting. Stroll up to Primrose Hill in May. Relax beneath the big tree on Hampstead Heath in June, with a picnic basket.

Perigold will dress you for Nature, in style.

As the leaves decline to russet shades again, and the light declines, Perigold will look even more beautiful.

Try the patterns, try the colours, try the fit.

Perigold will have something for you.
