They’re now available in store, online, they’ve been blogged about, tweaked about, fought over, sought over, worn, torn and tossed… But we still don’t feel like they’ve gotten enough air time. Our NEW AND EXCLUSIVE Venetian Furlane Slippers of course. The slippers are hand-made by a dying breed of Venetian manufacturers. Born out of post WW11 necessity and then adopted by gondoliers because of the ‘non-slip’ rubber bike tire sole, they have now become the staple of all things cool and chic by Venetian connoisseurs. Or Hentsch Man fans!
A big thank you to all of you who turned up to our Don’t Frieze party last week. It was WILD. If you missed it, shame on you. But you can be comforted in the knowledge that we’ll have another shindig soon, round about Christmas. Until then, have a look at some pics of the store – and how grown up she looks!
If you’re all ‘Frozen’ out already (god knows we are, and the fair only just opened today!), come celebrate some fashion instead… At our own ART SUCKS, FASHION TRUMPS IT party. Otherwise known at the Autumn Winter 2011 collection launch.
Thursday 13th October, 6–9pm
Hentsch Man Store
8 Newburgh Street
And a big fyi. We’ll be serving Caipirinhas. Which definitively trumps that cheap white wine that art parties serve up!
Is this not just the nicest message ever written? Thank you Iain, we love you too…
Hey Hentsch Man,I am a very luck boy… I work at Outlooks for Men in Victoria BC Canada.And have the pleasure of selling HM. The only issue is it sells a little to well. Youmake a product that is very easy to stand behind. From the quality, to the styling,to the presentation. Proper shits. I just wish people didn’t buy them so quickly so Icould have them all. Thank you so much for putting a shirt on my back and asmile on my face. It is the little things in life that really do make it worth living.Thank you,One of your loyal Hentsch Men,Iain RussellAnd some pics of good ol’ Iain wearing some Hentsch Man. How cool is this cat?
At Hentsch Man we like to think of ourselves as supporters of the Arts. We like film, theatre, dance, opera, literature, the circus, eating and many other forms of art. So when we were approached by Seth Sinclair of RSA Films (Ridley Scott’s London production company) to dress the two main characters of his upcoming film, MONTEREY, we jumped on it. Not only because it meant that we got to show off our clothes on the Silver Screen, but also because the plot of the film was so sinister and intriguing. We just couldn’t say no.
Picture a young doctor, torn apart by guilt over the death of his wife, embarks on a journey to find some semblance of closure, but instead leads himself deeper into obsession, delusion and madness as he travels into the rugged California wilderness.
How very David Lynch. How a-propos for Hentsch Man!
The film will be shot on site in California in November, so hopefully we can get you the sexy-sinister stills soon.
