Spring 2010 - John Fluevog Shoes
Canadian shoe designer John Fluevog is pleased to announce a very
exciting new collaboration with Opus Hotels. Arriving this Spring is The
Porter Shoe, designed and created exclusively for the hotel properties.
OPUS Hotels, with luxury boutique properties in both Vancouver and
Montreal, has a reputation for personality, flair, & individuality. Always
being on the cutting edge of cool, both John Fluevog and Opus Hotels
found themselves on common ground.
"It was an idea that originated a couple of years ago, and as time went
on it was more of a question of 'why haven't we done this yet,'" says
John Fluevog. "The fit seemed right as it was a collaboration between
two brands that are true to their West Coast origin, even if it's
subtle. Additionally, both organizations have a loyal following and
neither are afraid of a splash, a dash or a pop here and there."
"Style, design and innovation are three of OPUS Hotels' brand values and
no one has been as innovative in their field as John Fluevog", says John
deC. Evans, owner of OPUS Hotels. "It was a natural collaboration born
out of a shared creativity, imagination and originality. Fluevog shoes
personify the avant-garde, glamorous character of OPUS Hotels and this
partnership adds an exciting new dimension to the brand."
Fluevog and John Evans tirelessly mixed children's paints until the
perfect, pleasing OPUS/Fluevog/Porteresque shoe hue appeared. Embodying
design, style and originality, the OPUS Hotels Porter Shoe is made in
Portugal with Italian Analine Leathers and branded with OPUS Hotels
inside. Featuring black patent with a dark pink leather,
the two-tone color scheme matches Opus Hotels' strong colour decor.
The OPUS Hotels Porter Shoes will be showcased in the hotel
lobbies and will be worn exclusively by valets and male guest service
associates at OPUS Vancouver and OPUS Montreal. In true hotel fashion,
the shoes will be featured on the hotel mini bar menu. The shoes are
available in limited numbers in all ten North American Fluevog Shoes
stores and online ($329 CA and $279 US).
