FIVE by Rio Ferdinand S/S 2011
The new SS11 collection from FIVE by Rio Ferdinand has further drawn on the signature styles that proved so popular in the Autumn Winter collection. Once again this collection provides a range of footwear that caters for all occasions of the contemporary man’s busy lifestyle.
The range continues to draw inspiration from Rio’s own style, classic yet sophisticated with an urban twist. The nude palette of colours such as biscuit, sand and taupe are prominent within the collection. These neutral tones create a classically understated yet versatile range that work for all ages and occasions whilst the denim pieces add a youthful urban twist to the range.
Tan and sand oiled Oxford brogues with contrasting suede panels add a sleek feel whilst the granite and biscuit round toe brogues with horizontal stitch detailing add a more contemporary casual feel, both of which draw inspiration from Rio Ferdinand’s own clean cut style.
High leg desert military style lace up boots are once again a key signature piece within the SS11 collection and firmly stamp a masculine statement on the range whilst the denim finish with contrasting paneling creates a youthful urban edginess. The attention to detail within the design can be seen in the frayed canvas detailing, aged effect leather and laser etching effects.
Both hi top and low top trainers in earthy hues with thick rubber soles with the signature FIVE logo are a key feature within the range. The sneaker shoes within the collection create a synonymous tie with the famous sportsman behind the brand – Rio Ferdinand.
The classically styled and casually aspirated pieces create a range of footwear that can be worn to all occasions and demonstrate Rio Ferdinand’s input into the designs and his commitment to building the brand for the long-term.
