This season, brothers, Carl Gilliam &, launched their first luxury shoe brand, MCCVIII (Twelve O Eight) in none other than in the comforts of the Institute of Contemporary Arts for AW17.

The presentation brought a whole new meaning to casual tailoring, as the leather sneakers were styled with trousers and light jackets. MCCVIII presented several perfectly cool gentlemen in a show case of high top trainers in deep autumnal reds and teals.

The presentation introduced an alternative option in sportswear as street style rises and more by the minute reach for trainers as to brogues. The sneakers adorned with tassels, straps and zips, provided a stylistic approach to high top trainers, placing MCCVIII right where they need to be in the run as a footwear brand perfect for an effortlessly cool gentleman.
