Last week, the creative collective VANE and the super-classic shoe brand Sebago unveiled "Dark Forrest", the latest effort from their four-year old collaboration now being showcased at its own concept shop. If you are wondering what kind of common ground the two seemingly disparate entities could find, then look no further than Rivington Street, where the five piece collection is on display along with a few specially chosen pieces from Sebago's regular collection and a vintage selection of designer sunglasses and Rolex watches.
While the line retails for a bit more than Sebago's famous Docksides boat shoes, the prices remain relatively accessible, topping out at $220 for the decidedly non-preppy, multi-strapped "Ridgeline" boot (pictured below), which takes the traditional handsewn look in a much more street savvy direction. Other styles mix canvas, suede and even patent leather in ways that effortlessly bridge the New England and Lower East Side sensibilities. Wear them right now or save 'em for the Fall.
