The Lady & The Stylish Man SPRING - SUMMER 2017
Cohibas is now Perks 1942
Drawing inspiration from the reinterpretation of the classic male shoe, Perks couples innovation and 75 years of experience and know how to design timeless, versatile shoes. Designed and produced in the Evereste shoe factory, in S. João da Madeira, the brand embodies the multidisciplinary and disruptive vision of four creative generations, while aiming at representing added value and substantiating leverage in its area. Comfort, elevated quality and attention to detail are its distinctive traits – Perks shoes are the perfect ‘accomplices’ in the lifestyle of cosmopolitan men and women. Built to take on the challenges of hectic urban life, they meet very strict resistance and durability criteria, offering both sophistication and comfort all day long. Brought forth by the evolution and change of the renowned Cohibas brand, Perks is represented by the sea horse, a symbol of the brand’s core values: audacity, perseverance and credibility. Its heritage and adaptability take form in the development of two new lines that are both distinct and complementary - Perks 1942 and Perks Today.
In celebration of its 75 years of tradition in the shoe making art, Perks 1942 has reinvented iconic male shoes. Designed for men and women who are confident and sophisticated, this exclusive line represents flawless, timeless elegance. Born at the hands of experienced artisan masters, Perks 1942 takes shape from a palette of natural, high quality leather, and models are available in the Oxford, Derby, Monk strap, Loafer, Dress, Chukka and Chelsea boots versions.
