Introducing the collaboration that was based on a dream.
Earlier this year Carlos Costa contacted us after he had a dream about the perfect pair of boots. Slick, smart, with a gentle curve and the rich dark colour of dried blood.
The idea was born and we worked together to make this dream a reality. We lived in different countries - but we shared the same vision.
At first we designed a single pair of boots but after a short time we decided a second was needed and thus creating Carlos' mini ange which he proclaimed to be called 'Pure Blood'. Louis and Lestat were born.
While Louis and Lestat were often at odds with one another, they did eventually form an uneasy sort of truce, with Lestat gradually coming to regard his friend as a kind of soulmate.
