WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie launches inaugural men’s footwear collection

Canadian travel and accessories brand WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie has today launched its inaugural men’s footwear collection.

Guided by the intention “to engineer footwear that provides a perfect blend of form, function and value”, the brand’s co-founders Byron and Dexter Peart are starting the new line with an offering of two styles for Spring/Summer 2015: the Montoro (a classic derby updated with a bias cut and gold and silver finishes) and the Lennon (an oxford-style sneaker with a contemporary shape). New models, including sandals, are expected to become available later in the year.
