Loafers were first made in 1936 by the Norwegian brand Bass Weejun. They were originally intended to be a casual, comfortable shoe for men, but so many women wound up buying them that Bass Weejun began making a more feminine version. Loafers quickly earned the reputation of the classic, preppy American shoe.
They have made a comeback fairly recently, probably due to the resurgence of menswear-inspired women’s fashion gracing the runway. And they have become a great wardrobe staple. They’re simple, yet sophisticated. They’re easy to slip on, but they look elegant and classic. Plus, they go with just about anything.
These loafers by Lanvin, with their beautiful black leather and navy bow, are the perfect mix of masculinity and femininity. They turn the standard loafer into a chic, irresistible shoe.
