One of the most anticipated collections for Fall/Winter has been the designs of David Hart, which were musically inspired. For his sleek and modern collection, the Annapolis born designer paid a nod to Blue Note jazz musicians such as musicians like Jimmy Smith, Art Blakey, and Max Roach. While the collection could have easily been worn with a great appeal by any member of the Rat Pack, these stunning pieces are fresh and just as hip for today.

Just like his take on his designs, Hart has now collaborated with Johnston and Murphy, the classic footwear brand. The result is a collection of formal shoes that launch today. The collection consists of three styles, a patent leather lace-up and two velvet tassel slipper in navy and black.

From the onset of the relationship, Johnston & Murphy was attracted to David’s affinity for American menswear and his ability to modernize the codes of classic formalwear. In a similar fashion, David was intrigued by the brand’s 150-year old heritage and southern roots. Specifically, it was a formal shoe from the archives that was originally produced in the 1950’s/60’s that inspired the collection.
