Septieme Largeur Comes To North America
Founded in 2010 by creator Marcos Fernandez Cabezas, Parisian footwear brand Septieme Largeur has started a 45-day U.S. kickstarter campaign to participate in wholesale distribution and to open retail locations throughout New York City. After making waves in France and Singapore, Septieme Largeur expects to find the perfect location that would appeal to a core audience while maintaining the products’ charm and beauty. Former creative director of Dr. Martens and Markowski shoes, Cabezas brings over forty years of exclusive experience designing European footwear. The founder of Septieme Largeur teamed with his nephew Mathieu Preiss to create a fashionable line of shoes for lovers of the arts and crafts by exhibiting handcrafted, hand-dyed styles. The bespoke collection features the signature Septieme Largeur, the classic Patina, as well as other customizable oxfords, loafers, boots, and derby shoes. The distinguished brand provides each customer with the proper character, comfort and fit for his size. The campaign will be open until Friday, August 22 2014 with the ultimate goal of raising $40,000.
