The San Crispino by Fred de la Bretonière

If there's one reason why you'll always want to wear Fred de la Bretonière shoes, it's that his collections don't make any concessions when it comes to design, quality or comfort. For years the brand has excelled in elegance and the perfect fit, resulting in wearable luxury products. This footwear is an ode to the woman who wants top quality and knows she deserves it. The San Crispino stitch, one of this season's eyecatchers, reaffirms that Fred de la Bretonière has a sound brand promise.

A boot you'll never want to take off

Fred de la Bretonière has introduced three styles to the autumn and winter collection that are manufactured using the San Crispino method. The upper leather is stretched around the leather insole before being sewn on in San Crispino style. The seamless stitch, used by craftsmen in Portugal, creates an extremely strong and flexible shoe base. In combination with the high-quality leather used, a boot that you'll never want to take off now exists.

A strong basic for any woman

Experience how apparently small differences in design and workmanship can make a huge difference to the appearance and comfort of a boot. The San Crispino technique has been used on three boot heights in the new collection: the ankle boot, calf boot and long boot. They are finished in fine, luxury structured leather or snake-print leather and are available in a range of basic winter shades. The slim-design boots also have a pointed nose to optically lengthen your legs. The 7cm-high western boot heel gives the design a contemporary style and more importantly: this boot is a basic that you can wear the entire day.

Must have: business bag

Nothing is more essential than a stylish yet practical business bag. Luckily, Fred is one step ahead! You can use our business bags as a handbag or shoulder bag. They have plenty of compartments for your smartphone, pens, papers, laptop and favourite lipstick. Designed to create a tidy bag and with that an uncluttered mind. Fred de la Bretonière business bags are made from superior quality leathers, such as tanned structured leather and hand finished leather, so that they stay gorgeous for years and provides an office-appropriate upgrade for each look.

Combining your ultimate business bag

Combine your business bag with timeless pumps or – if you feel like high heels for a change – with classic black Chelsea boots. That way you're ready to start a new year, without back-to-work blues, with a new look.

How our iconic shoulder bag is made..

For designer Fred de la Bretoniere and his regular customers this shoulder bag is not just any old bag! The bag has been part of the collections since the early nineteen seventies. It is the only bag with an actual name; it was named after Fred's girlfriend at the time who was called Marianne. In the meantime it has been made out of many different types of leather, and in many different sizes. It is anything but old!

Handmade in the Netherlands

Also, the way in which this special bag is made is something we're very proud of. Did you know that this iconic bag, like many other Fred de la Bretoniere bags, is still made in the Netherlands? And this is how!
