FRYE Women's/Men's Fall 2011 Footwear/Accessories



Midtown, NYC
Words, Images Judith Ecochard














The media preview for Fall 2011 was a editor's dream---well laid out, top shelf products (we were told around 2300 skus!!!!!), easy "to get' groupings-all with that special Frye DNA----


WALLS OF FOOTWEAR/BAGS! VERY TEMPTING

Love the lighting fixture---employees helped!






We were ready to move in
Plus: We got to see more of the handbags, satchels, briefs----which not all outlets that carry Frye---will offer for sale---but we LOVE. But their store down on Spring Street should have plenty....





Take for example, this amazing old saddle bag that is made in Mexico, hand tooled/laser cut with an underlay---WANT.


More great bags...

Lots of equestrian and engineer/work boot influences influences...

Wedge boots with a lug sole---"straight out of the men's take down"---a fashion-y twist on a work boot.

KIRA SLIP GORE---great autumnal tones---



MEN's boots have a distinct rock and roll vibe (the "skniny jeans" type)....


Clean and distressed leathers for the core and seasonal collections....

And terrific oxfords, wingtips, and loafer/slip-ons (James)...we think that come double as casual weekend shoes---or for business travelers with downtown who only want to take on board, one pair of shoes---the one's they're wearing.

Great finishes modern take on classic s;ip-ons and wingtip

Year round color- men's shoes














Logger soles---made for sturdy rubber....
