HARLEM BESPOKE X SANDRA SPANNAN BIRKS

Sugar Hill Market will be debuting a collaboration with one of the city's top artisans for custom, higher-end fashion pieces sold at wholesale prices directly to shoppers.  After 15 years of corporate design and brand launching, the founder of Harlem Bespoke has launched Sugar Hill Market to connect local designers and artisans to uptown buyers.  The new retail platform has helped create unique goods not seen elsewhere in the city and H+B has now been working with the merchants on custom order pieces.  One of the first collection collaboration will be with Sandra Spannan who is New York City's top gilding artisan that has worked for Tiffany's and Baccarat.

Birkenstocks looks are trending on the high end for S/S 2014 and we came up with these very Bespoke gilded 23 Carat Italian Gold Leaf + 12 Carat Moon Gold Camo unisex sandals.  Designers have been pairing the look with tailored suits or flowing summer dresses but these are the only ones in the world made with actual precious gold leaf.   The Bespoke Shop will have them on display this Sunday, May 4th for custom order only.  Sugar Hill shoppers can make an order directly at the market for $290 a pair.
