Nick Fouquet and Lucchese Head West with New Shoe Collaboration

What: Footwear and accessory collection
Where: Available online at nickfouquet.com
Why: French-American designer Nick Fouquet and Lucchese, the popular Texas-based boot brand, have come together to create a collection of footwear and accessories made in the spirit of the Wild West. On the surface, the collab may not be the most obvious pairing, but Fouquet’s penchant for a collective of poets in the cowboy community moved him to design in their honor. Drawing from ‘70s-era relaxed fits and adding a modern twist, the collection of cowboy boots, silk scarves, and hats are equal parts classic and of-the-moment. Looks like the frontier of fashion has a new sheriff in town.
