FYFO are very pleased to welcome Gant as our brand of the month for October. This classic American brand may be known for their tailored shirts but their footwear range continues to expand and grow from strength to strength. Staying true to the brands heritage and image, Gant have created shoes that are structured, timeless and of exceptional quality. Tightly connected to the apparel, the footwear collection is developed around the same three seasonal themes as set by Gant’s head creatives. Gant’s journey to a credible, modern fashion brand has been detailed but they have developed from their American sportswear roots, infusing a sophisticated European style to become a unique and much loved brand. However, it all began with a Ukrainian boy in search of his American dream.
A 17-year-old Berl Gantmacher started life in America by changing his name to Bernard and enrolling in night classes at Columbia University’s College of Pharmacy. Soon he found himself work on the Lower East Side of New York; the hub of the city’s busy garment industry. Bernard worked hard and learnt the trade of tailoring. It was here that he would meet the woman who would become his wife, Rebecca Rose. His new found entrepreneurial skills led to him partnering with Morris Shapiro and founding the Par-Ex Shirt Company based in Brooklyn. Par-Ex made shirts par excellence for other brands, including Brooks Brothers. After enjoying success, the Par-Ex Shirt Company, relocated to upscale New Haven, Connecticut where Bernard and Rebecca started a family. Marty and Elliot Gantmacher would influence their father’s business hugely. They recognised the change in traditions after the Second World War; America was entering a period of new kinds of art, music and fashion. This provided new opportunity for the family business and the son’s convinced their father it was time to leave Par-Ex behind and establish their own label selling tailored shirts. Consequently, Gant Inc was born in 1949.
To this day Gant headquarters hold and archive of Gant shirts from the founding year of the company to present, each a source of inspiration for collections to come. Creative Director, Christopher Bastin places huge important on this archive as a design foundation for the company, stating that “having a legacy is something that sets you apart and gives you authenticity and credibility. And, most importantly, it gives you a platform and security as a brand.” This proves that despite adapting to the modern times, Gant has remained and will always remain faithful to the Gantmacher’s vision.
You can find our full range of Gant footwear, including some of our favorite styles like Spencer and Laura, on FYFO here!

Fashion month may be coming to a close but we’re not done yet! Take a look at our top SS16 styles from New York, London, Milan and Paris and discover what trends will be hitting the shops next summer!
Slip-on sneakers paired with gold anklets took Calvin Klein back to its minimal, sportswear heritage. However, small creative elements such as frayed satin edges made this collection far from ordinary.
It looks like laser cut footwear is here to stay for spring 16! Marchesa unveiled their first luxury footwear collection with an array of intricate laser cut heeled sandals showing their footwear can be just as beautiful as their apparel.
Michael Kors gives you three trends in one sandal for Spring/Summer 16. The platform sandal trend has been interpreted by many designers, with Kors adding texture in the form of blue and grey python print and a crossover strap with buckle for wearability.
Cut out boots and belt bags adorned the Burberry SS16 show and were a hit with the fashion critics. Reflecting the classic trench coat buckle Burberry is synonymous for, the adaptation of a small officer’s shoulder bag from the Burberry archive is fashioned in a smooth English suede and House check cotton, woven at the Burberry mill in Yorkshire.
Barely-there Perspex and strappy sandals worked perfectly with the acid brights at Jonathan Saunders. These are definitely a SS16 staple!
Holly Fulton and Christian Louboutin
SS16 bought about Fulton’s second collaboration with Christian Louboutin with her repeat prints applied on to Bella Tinge wedged sandals. The collection had a 60’s edge, with neon geometric prints and detailed embroidery, giving a new twist to the platform sandal that’s fast becoming SS16 must-have shoe!
Gianvito Rossi gave us a Navajo theme for SS16, with monochrome stiletto sandals with fine white and black strips of napa suggestive of Native American feathers. Finished with lace up ankle detailing this stand-out shoe is elegant yet evocative.
If you’re looking for a statement summer sandal, Jimmy Choo is the answer! Creative director Sandra Choi took inspiration from California and the sunny landscapes of Los Angeles, with the architecture of Frank Gehry and Richard Meier influencing her sculpted shapes. The novel "banana heel" was applied to much of the range, including these bright metallic, strappy sandals expressing the fun, futuristic, and architectural gestalt Choi sought for next season.
Combining the cut-out trend with one of SS16’s hottest colours, designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon bring Kenzo’s signature manipulation of shape to footwear. These over the knee patent white sandals are certainly eye catching summer shoes!
The gold of the affluent 12th century Venice featured throughout Vivienne Westwood’s SS16 collection. Like many other designers during fashion month, the platform sandal featured in the footwear line up, this time in a multi-strap deep gold version.
Feminine elegance is what Elie Saab is known and loved for and the SS16 collection didn’t stray from the designers roots. With layers of flowing lace paired with laser cut lace up sandals and flat gladiators Saab created a relaxed, graceful vibe.
