Last week Hong Kong boutique The Armoury brought over to London a collection of its favourite artisans, including Florentine tailor Liverano & Liverano - which has already been covered extensively here on The Rake - Spanish shoemaker Carmina and Japanese glasses maker Nackymade.
The three are pretty different in terms of size and style: Carmina runs a Goodyear-welting factory in Mallorca, to produce its ready-to-wear shoes, while Nackymade is just one guy, Naoki Nakagawa, who makes all his glasses himself in Kobe. Liverano, with one tailor (Antonio, pictured bottom) and a handful of tailors, sits somewhere in the middle.
Despite some tropical-style downpours, doubtless brought all the way from Hong Kong for the occasion, the trunk show went well and even brought in some passing shoppers who spied the temporary display in the windows of the host gallery.
More on Liverano here.
