Geller’s Monks

Monk Straps became very ‘on trend’ a few years ago but here’s the truth, monk strap shoes are a classic menswear staple. In fact, I would even argue that every man should own at least one pair. I have been rocking a pair of classic Jil Sander Monk Strap shoes for years and it just might be time to upgrade to a new pair – Robert Geller x Common Projects (don’t worry those Sander’s aren’t going anywhere). These bad boys are made in Italy of buffed leather with black zipper teeth accent trimming toe and apron. I am a big fan of the classic numbers branding on the side by Common Projects and the unusual closure for the strap.  A great modern twist on a classic menswear shoe. $855

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
