Chatham SS'14

Last week I attended the Chatham Marine press day ahead of the launch of their spring/summer stock. Initially I was skeptical - I have to admit I expected row upon row of classic deck shoes - lovely but not enormously exciting. However, I was really pleasantly surprised! Rather than a sea of brown leather there were pops of pink, orange, red and even a few pastel colours. It seems this footwear brand have transgressed traditional limitations of marine footwear and truly updated it. 

The shoes are beautiful quality, with hand finishes, yet are surprisingly light (something I definitely look for in a summer shoe). For me personally, my favourites were the baby blue suede brogues - ordinarily I am not a brogues kind of person, but the pastel colour gives them such an on trend twist, and I can see myself wearing these with skinny jeans and a breton top on cooler spring days, or bright coloured skirts in the summer.
The mens shoes were just as lovely, with a really relaxed, beachy feel (would look really good with to the knee denim shorts).

The range isn't online just yet, but to see more from Chatham click here
