After a soft spring launch, Johnston & Murphy enters the women's market in earnest this fall. The brand takes the menswear influence it's known to bow a collection of buttery soft flats, dress shoes and boots, with full glove leather linings and memory foam insoles. A black-on-black satin and suede spotted smoking slipper in particular caught our eye at the FN Platform show in February.
It's back to the classics for the 161-year-old Nashville, TN-based Johnston & Murphy. And that's just what the company's Spring/Summer '12 men's collection delivers: a line chock full of casually sophisticated and minimalistic styles that are reminiscent of "the good ole days." Whether it's a classic oxford or a relaxed loafer, the new collection can take a man everywhere from boardroom to barstool or a weekend at the beach.
