Dee Ocleppo—entrepreneur, designer, and wife to Tommy Hilfiger—has launched an all-new line of luxury footwear featuring more than a few handsome menswear staples ripe for your spring wardrobe. The collection, which was inspired by Ocleppo’s sourcing trips to Italy’s highly specialized shoe and leather goods factories, marries Italian craftsmanship with American style. Oh, and it’s direct-to-consumer—meaning all that sweet, sweet Italian leather is coming at you for a supremely lower price.
Working hand-in-hand with the best family-owned factories and artisans between Naples, Florence, Milan and New York, the collection boasts a hefty variety of both sneakers and dress shoes alike. Check out our favorite picks below and browse the entire line here.
