Every man needs a classic pair of loafers in his collection, and Baudoin & Lange makes the best available on the market. Founded by Creative Director and former Apple executive Allan Baudoin and former financier & race car driver Bo van Langeveld as CEO, Baudoin & Lange was born in 2016. The brand is committed to innovating and reinventing the highest standards of traditional sartorial handicrafts. The brand is available at Harrods and Selfridges, among other luxury department stores. Influenced by art, culture, tech, sports, and luxury, Baudoin & Lange have an elegant footwear collection, and you’d want all of them in your wardrobe. However, their latest collection is extremely special.
The exclusive collection with Alexander Kraft is a series of limited edition Sagan Classic String loafers. The latest design is called “The Kraft Bow” for the knotted detail on their vamp. The loafers feature the brand’s signature Sagan Classic loafer in a tonal dark Caramel hue of tan suede with a contrasting bow and piping. The collection is limited to only 30 units – a true collector’s pair! These made-to-order loafers range from sizes 39 to 46. By the time you read this, the loafers might already be out of stock.
“When I saw the Sagan Classic String loafers for the first time in London, I immediately wanted to create a version of my own. After working closely with my friends at Baudoin & Lange, my final choice fell on a very special dark caramel suede with contrasting bow and piping, which for me results in a supremely elegant yet understated pairing.”, says Alexander Kraft.
The company has sourced its Asteria suede from an excellent selection of Mediterranean goats to make this beautiful pair of loafers. The material is further tanned by a family-run artisanal tannery in Cyprus using traditional ingredients and no aggressive chemicals that result in a beautiful finish. You can see the natural whole grain on the reverse of the skin, and it is used as the interiors to avoid using an additional layer of lining to help stiffen the shoe.
Alexander Kraft is a successful lawyer and an executive at Sotheby’s International Realty; he is also known for his menswear line launched in 2020. The brand offers impeccably tailoring, and sportswear for men and women made only from the most delicate European fabrics and artisans.
