What Would Jesus Wear?, T Men’s Fashion Spring 2009


At Bernhard Willhelm’s spring show, there was the usual assortment of men’s-wear oddities — things like feather headpieces and Shakespearean culottes. So it’s understandable that the designer’s new, relatively understated line of footwear sneaked by undetected. His leather sandals and moccasins, inspired by peasant shoes and released under the fledgling Together brand, are a collaboration with the Spanish footwear company Camper. These gladiator sandals, available at Opening Ceremony, consist of ropelike laces tethered to tire-rubber soles; the side-buckle moccasins are hand-stitched from a single piece of leather, one of the oldest shoemaking techniques. Willhelm says they’re meant for ”anyone who wants to feel the elements — call him Muhammad Jesus.”
