Florsheim for Duckie Brown Spreads Their Wings

Our friends at Valet spends some time with Ilaria Urbinati of Confederacy LA on the new Florsheim for Duckie Brown collection. ” ‘The whole point of a collaboration is to do something different and show a new take on a classic,’ says Ilaria Urbinati, the stylist and co-owner of LA’s Confederacy, who scored a two-month exclusive on the line. The collection includes revamped styles like Florsheim’s signature Riza loafer but Urbinati’s torn on a favorite. ‘It’s between the brogue boot, which looks like something Oliver Twist would wear and kick your ass in,’ she laughs.”
