Viberg x Palmer Trading Company SS15

We’re proud to present two new styles for this season’s collaboration with the always excellent Viberg boots. The Bad Seed Boot in rough out leather features a Dainite sole, 10 nickel eyelets, brogue cap toe with half moon pinking, and is constructed on the 2030 last.

The Creeper Oxford in Horween’s Black Waxed Flesh features a Vibram sole, 5 Gunmetal eyelets, and is constructed on the 2030 last.

Founded in 1931 by Ed Viberg, the Canadian company is now in its 3rd generation and is still entirely family owned and operated. Today Ed’s son Glen Viberg is still on the factory floor, personally working on every single pair of boots that leaves our doors. Their business began with the goal of crafting the best boot possible and They’re proud to have maintained this uncompromising level of quality. They use traditional manufacturing methods and only the best materials sourced from around the world: brass tacks from England, heavyweight insoles from Spain, Vibram outsoles, Swiss hobnails and the finest upper leathers from renowned tanneries in the USA and Italy. There are over 200 steps that go into producing a pair of Viberg boots and all of them are performed in their own facility by skilled craftspeople.

GAMIN NYC

Located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Gamin is a small studio focusing on culturally offbeat, urban designs. Intended to be worn by both men and women, pieces are rooted in the form and structure of Morccan Berber jewlery juxtaposed with the personality of the Parisian Gamin, as referenced in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. The gamin embodies joy despite everything, confidence in his own creating, and a smirking defiance of convention and authority.

Made entirely in NYC and primarily cast in sterling silver, each piece is designed as a whole, with consideration given to angles otherwise overlooked. Details in the form of inscriptions and design motifs give each item layers of cultural and literary meaning only apparent to the wearer.

These images were taken during the launch party that took place 05/21/15 at the Palmer Trading Company store front in SoHo.

View the entire collection now available at PTC here.
