Fashion & Style: If you are in the music industry, chances are you have not only heard of the famous boot designer Mark Nason but are probably already sporting a pair. If not, then now is your chance to get on board with some of the hippest fashions in the footwear industry.
Handcrafted in Italy and designed to complement designer denim and casual wear, Mark Nason is the soul of style. Numerous celebrities can be seen "rocking" the Mark Nason brand, including Robert Plant, Steven Tyler, Slash, Matt Leinert and Billy Bob Thornton, probably because each style is named after something related to music/art whether it be a musician's name, venue, term or sound.
With distinctive profiles and luxurious leathers, the range of classic and modern boots, shoes and sandals is also desired by those who define style as unique and individualistic. Today, the Mark Nason brand focuses on boot products and launched its men's line in 2004. Since then, the company has also introduced a women's line called Siren by Mark Nason, which was specifically designed for women who embrace a bold spirit.
The ultimate accompaniment to designer denim and casual couture, the designs are defined by bold profiles, alluring details and distinct textures -- from hand treated leather to exotic materials. As a result, Mark Nason has been touted as one of the best designers of fashionable footwear and boot products on the market today. He believes a person's attitude can be expressed by the way the individual is dressed and presents him or herself.
As a result, the line is not only sophisticated but made of premium Italian leathers which allows for added comfort. Mark Nason wanted both quality and comfort to shine through in each design.
Since inception, the company has evolved into a multi-line accessory brand with new offerings in designer footwear, messenger bags and belts with each carefully thought out design defined through various handcrafted details and signature hardware embellishments. The leathers used in both collections are one-of-a-kind exclusive to the line. To achieve that one of a kind look, the company works with several Italian factories and tanneries that have been family owned and operated for many generations.
Today, Mark Nason continues to develop an innovative line of luxury comfort footwear, mixing creative energy with ongoing entrepreneurial spirit. Prices from each collection range from $450 and up for footwear, $495 - $1400 for bags and $175 - $250 for belts. All are available at finer specialty stores and boutiques such as Fred Segal, M. Fredric, The Vault, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus.
