JUSTIN DEAKIN X A CHILD OF THE JAGO - THE HIGHPAD
Justin Deakin and A Child Of The Jago have colluded together to stand and deliver The Highpad Sneaker. The boldest highwayman meets the street sneaker and collude in partnership using the silhouette of The Jago Highpad boot, Jago prints of old London Street maps, 18th Century buckles developed for the London opera house and the fine leathers and shoe craft that personifies the Justin Deakin brand. These combine to stand and deliver a superior class of footwear for the modern Highpad, Dandy or Chancer.

JUSTIN DEAKIN X SUTOR MANTELLASSI
Celebrating 50 years since Mastroianni’s Hollywood moment, Sutor Mantellassi presented five international designers to re-imagine the actor’s style essence. The first act to this Anniversary Project was Justin Deakin, one of London’s most revered shoe designers. Justin reinterpreted the classic shoe, originally created 50 years ago for film star Marcello Mastroianni to wear on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In homage to Mastroianni’s 1960s brand of debonair cool, Deakin came up with a winkle-picker-influenced black calf monk shoe with an alligator vamp and double straps. It was an all-black style statement that anticipated by a year the ubiquity of the monk shoe at the Milan autumn/winter 2016 shows.
