Tommy Hilfiger worked with American footwear designer George Esquivel to create exclusive new brogues and loafers for men and women. Each pair, numbered and limited to 900 copies worldwide, was handcrafted in Esquivel's atelier in California with locally-sourced leather. The perforated brogue in navy blue and burgundy was seen on Hilfiger's Fall 2013 runway back in February. Esquivel is one to watch: The designer was recently selected for the CFDA "Americans In Paris" program, a global showcase sponsored by the Council for Fashion Designers of America and Vogue to promote emerging American designers at Paris Fashion Week (September 28-30). Time to invest!
