Ash lives shoe design
The label Ash specialises in footwear in all possible forms and colours. The brand originated in Italy and was founded in 2000 by the Italian Leonello Calvani and Frenchman Patrick Ithier. The brand focuses on trendy collections and current design, combined with Italian shoe design. Only high-quality materials are used to make Ash shoes. The company’s headquarters are located in New York.
The history of the label
Calvani and Ithier were both already active in the luxury footwear sector prior to founding Ash. They worked for well-known names such as Charles Jourdan and Stephane Kelian. As they quickly realised that they shared a similar aesthetic sensibility, the collaboration was only a matter of time.
The style of the shoes
Ash shoes have an edgy, unique and highly contemporary design. The shoes reflect the heritage of the designers; a mixture of Italian leather craftsmanship and luxurious French design. The Ash brand is based on two ideas: Producing cool, unique products for fashionable target groups, all the while offering more attractive prices than the competition. The typical Ash customer sets trends, rather than follows them. They are also out and about a lot and draw inspiration from the style of the fashion capitals all over the world.
Ash around the globe
The company is currently expanding its retail network in Europe. The brand is also expanding within the USA and Asia. Shops are due to be opened in Athens, Copenhagen, Taipei, Tokyo, Milan, Seoul, Paris and New York City in the foreseeable future. This is how Ash hopes to rise to become one of the most well-known luxury footwear brands worldwide, next to other manufacturers like Clarks.
The Ash stores
The brand’s stores each have their own architectural concept, which underlines the uniqueness and philosophy of the label. Leather walls, stone floors, and elaborate window displays support the ideal presentation of the unusual shoes. In addition to footwear, the label also offers other leather goods, such as Ash bags and other leather accessories.
