How Daniel Essa is reshaping the future of minimalist luxury shoemaking

In a world with so much uncertainty, the consumer behaviour has been shifting from cautious shopping to revenge spending. However, one thing that is certain is that the future of fashion looks more sustainable, customer-centric and efficient.

As consumers are more engaged in sustainability and social issues, the influence of minimalism in fashion has never been stronger. With such rampant uncertainty, consumers and buyers are gravitating towards designs that speak of longevity and security.

A young name in the luxury footwear landscape has been making waves by pushing the envelope on minimalism and the slow fashion movement. With minimalist, sophisticated and customizable designs, Daniel Essa is reshaping the future of the luxury footwear market with innovation in creating timeless footwear. Launched in Paris, in 2017, by Syrian designer and Creative Director, Daniel Essa, the French luxury footwear brand quickly became a favourite amongst Hollywood stars and fashion elites. From the U.S. to the Middle East, Daniel Essa sneakers are proving to be a tool of expression. As the brand puts its customer in the heart of the design process with its personalization offering, it connects with them on a personal level. This goes beyond the product.

Even in the age of stay-at-home orders and lockdowns, it’s hard to shake the feeling of wanting something new in your closet to welcome a new season. That shouldn’t have to mean updating every single item in your closet. Sometimes the key to making your favourite pieces feel fresh is throwing on a new element into the mix. The footwear brand is offering a way to do just that, with its signature sneakers featuring durable, customizable laces.

With clean lines and eye-catching designs, the sneakers are handcrafted in one of the most prestigious ateliers in Italy. The brand uses certified sustainable bovine leather that is hand tinted to minimize the impact on health and environment.

The unique signature minimalist details with sophisticated seamless leather layering techniques, have challenged traditional shoemaking craftsmanship to create an effortless French style embedded with the finest Italian craftsmanship. All of the design samples are handcrafted, which is an Haute Couture approach that has never been used in shoemaking before.

Their ateliers combine traditional techniques with state-of-the-art technologies, minimizing waste whilst being innovative and imaginative to achieve a truly minimalist product.

The French brand offers a range of men’s and women’s sneakers for the everyday and every occasion. From slip-ons popping with colour to high-tops featuring a combination of leathers and neoprene for comfort.

By using sustainable and recyclable elements, the brand designs durable and timeless products that create a long-term change. The brand is committed to working with suppliers that align with their core values of sustainability and fair trade. They strive to create positive change and build a sustainable legacy through care and attention to the entire supply chain.

Womenswear SS22 color trends

Colour is key for consumers and SS22 saw fresh palettes that echoed the renewed sense of optimism happening amongst consumers. Soft eco influences, gender-fluid nostalgia and vibrant combinations bursting with positivity sought to reflect broader societal trends whilst still capturing the season’s playful mood.

Trendstop brings FashionUnited readers a first look at the key womenswear colour inspirations emerging on the Spring Summer 2022 catwalks.

Dry Leaf

Dry Leaf sees vintage influences meeting eco outlooks. A beautiful, natural colourway, it illustrates the importance of colour transeasonality. An innovative, emerging yet simultaneously timeless shade of green, Dry Leaf speaks to consumer desire for longevity and versatility and encompasses both feminine and masculine traits. In its merging of seasons and notions of gender, the colour is indicative of the cultural and mindset shifts happening across global society.

Boyhood Blues

Boyhood Blues, shades often worn by boys in childhood, offer a more playful interpretation on a classic tone, with a touch of nostalgia underpinning the palette. Adopting traditionally boyish tones for womenswear reflects the move towards gender-neutral dressing. As trends begin to move more slowly and transeasonality increases in importance, vibrant spring-like shades transcend the seasons and work equally well into Fall.

Playful Optimism

A key colour grouping for SS22, playful Optimism with its heightened sense of colour expression reflects the sense of joy entering the market as consumers gain more positive outlooks for the future. Though hues are vivid there is still a high level of curation, intelligence and thoughtfulness put into colour combinations. Although the palette is fun, it is not frivolous, maintaining the artfulness of the designs.
