Besides studded heels, neons and bright loafers, Tresmode’s first store in the city has bags too
For those with a shoe fetish, the barely two-month-old Tresmode store at Express Avenue mall, is a must visit. Known for their trendy footwear, this three-year-old Indian brand imports their collection from Italy. There are stores in Bangalore and Kochi in the South, as well as Kathmandu. We got talking to Jagdish Kumar, regional head— sales, South India, on the brand’s plans and their hottest selling pieces of the season.
According to Kumar, bright colours are in as far as shoes are concerned, and neutral shades like black, cream and chocolate are in for bags. “Neon colours have been doing well in footwear, too,” he adds. You will find heels and flats in colours like corals, mustards and blues.“We don’t have any mid-level or kitten heels,” Kumar says. The reason Tresmode hasn’t altered its designs to cater to the wedding market is because, “a lot of our clients are independent working women, aged between 18 and 35 years,” says Kumar.
On par with brands like Aldo and Charles & Keith, Tresmode is associated with events like the Lakme Fashion Week, Mumbai, where they sponsor shoes for some of the shows. Interestingly, Tresmode had tested the Chennai waters three years ago, when it was introduced in a multi-brand outlet and had received a tepid response. “We felt sure of the market when we saw international brands perform well recently,” Kumar confesses. The hottest piece according to Kumar is the Lady Gaga shoes with studdeds heels.
