READY FOR FALL WITH BECKETT SIMONON

September 17, 2018

It’s been a while since I posted on the blog, so today I’m bringing you an update and a new collab with Beckett Simonon. I hope you like it!

Fall/Winter is by far my favorite season of the year, and since it’s practically around the corner I’m very happy I had the chance to partner with the guys at Beckett Simonon to try a pair of their remarkable shoes, which I’m sure will turn into a wardrobe staple and will be perfect for all the parties in the coming months (including my birthday!)

First, I’d like to talk a bit more about what makes Beckett Simonon different from other brands I know: their products are crafted to order, which means that instead of getting a pair of shoes that has been mass-produced, yours will be made by especially for you by artisans and not machines. This definitely translates into a product that looks and feels luxurious, from the way it’s packaged to the attention to detail and just the way the shoes feel when you wear them, you know you’re wearing high quality. Regarding price, although Beckett Simonon‘s offerings might be a bit more expensive that what you’ll find in a department store, a fast fashion retailer or a low-cost brand, you know that what you’re getting is well worth it and even cheaper than other alternatives with similar quality.

Their catalog is comprised of very clean and timeless designs, from oxfords to brogues to military boots, chelsea boots (my favorite!) and even leather sneakers (it might not come as a surprise to you at this point, but I really loved their white Reid sneakers, but since I already have four pairs in my closet I decided against getting another one for the time being, haha). They also stock accessories such as belts and bags, which to me feel very contemporary, elegant and, at the same time, classic.

About my pair: I chose their Cohen loafers in black suede; I’ve been wanting a pair of loafers for a while now so I didn’t have to spend much time in making a decision. As usual, my choice is quite simple, goes well with everything and has a very classic design. Overall I’m very happy with my pair and even though I’m not one to wear formal outfits very often I know that when I do these babies will have my back.

Hacía rato que no tenía oportunidad de subir contenido al blog y a mis redes sociales, así que hoy vengo a revivir un poco el asunto de la mano de Beckett Simonon.

Otoño/Invierno es por mucho mi temporada favorita del año, y como está a la vuelta de la esquina estoy feliz de poder hacer esta colaboración con la gente de Beckett Simonon que me envió un par de zapatos que estoy seguro se convertirán en un staple para mi guardarropa y  serán perfectos para todas las fiestas que están por venir en los próximos meses.

Primero quiero platicarles una de las principales características  de esta marca que creo que la hacen resaltar un poco de las demás, y es que en lugar de enfocarse en la producción en masa para mantener los costos bajos y tener más alcance, Becket Simonon trabaja con un modelo distinto en donde cada producto se realiza sobre pedido. De esta forma garantizan que la inversión de tiempo, los materiales y la calidad de cada par de zapatos son de lo mejor que puedes esperar, además de lograr todo esto con precios que están por debajo de otras alternativas con una oferta similar y de mantener una operación que depende de artesanos y no máquinas para realizar sus productos.

Otra de las cosas que más me gustan sobre Beckett Simonon es el diseño de cada uno de los pares que conforman su catálogo. Es elegante y atemporal, y por lo que estás pagando sabes que lo que recibirás será un producto que no pasará de moda para la siguiente temporada y sobre todo que por su construcción va a durarte muchos años. A final de cuentas los zapatos (y sobre todo un par de vestir) es una inversión y Beckett Simonon gracias a su modelo de negocio permite conseguir una buena relación calidad-precio.

Sobre mi par: elegí, como siempre, un diseño fácil de combinar, sencillo y que va con todo. Desde hace mucho tenía ganas de incorporar un par de loafers a mi guardarropa así que cuando llegó el momento de elegir fue muy fácil encaminar mi decisión. Además de loafers, en la página de Beckett Simonon podrás encontrar distintas versiones de Oxfords, zapatos con hebilla doble y sencilla, varios tipos de botas (incluyendo las Chelsea, que son de mis favoritas) e incluso sneakers de piel (los blancos me encantaron, pero tengo cuatro pares en el clóset y creí que agregar uno más sería demásiado por ahora jajaja). Aparte de los zapatos también puedes conseguir cinturones y maletines hechos con la misma calidad y atención al detalle.
