CALF LEATHER - EBONY
Browse our catalog
As the emblematic derby of the Maison, the Arca comes straight out of a family portrait.
Pure in its lines, the Arca was named after Pierre Corthay's grandfather’s sailing boat. Under the aegis of this wise man, Pierre used to spend magical evenings aboard the Arca where, with his head in the stars, he learnt to find his way around thanks to them. Its acute curves, heightened by a bevelled tongue and a double inverted lacing, make it an example of simplicity in all its sharpness. The audacious and deep “Aubergine” patina flatters the impeccable lines of this exceptional shoe. This patina is one of our signature patinas - depending on its depth it can be quite eye-popping or just quietly sophisticated and unusual.

Love and Care
Putting the shoe on: The systematic use of a shoehorn is preferable. Indeed, it will make it easier to put on the shoe, as well as avoid deforming it and damaging the counter.
Removing: As much as possible, alternate the wearing of your favourite shoes to guarantee their longevity. The rule ‘a different shoe a day keeps the aging away’ is very true ...
Pampering: With a horsehair brush to remove the dust and dirt from the surface of your shoes.
Nourish the leather with a renovating cream of its colour in circular movements usisng a clean cloth.
Allow to dry and then remove excess product with a brush with horizontal back and forth movements.
Finally, apply a wax of the same colour as the leather and rub your shoes with tights or a polishing glove to reveal their shine.
