L.A.-based Gourmet made a cross-country trek to preview the brand’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection at New York’s Spotted Pig last Wednesday. While attendees enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, Gourmet co-founders John Buscemi and Greg Lucci presented the upcoming footwear lineup, made up of popular models including the Quattro Skate, Dieci 2 SN and the 21, in unique finishes like ocelot print and Japanese ultrasuede, alongside the more traditional full grain leather. The occasion also marked the debut of the Gaetano, the most technically advanced shoe from the brand to date, featuring a no-sew upper with mesh details and lightweight tech outsole. Among the guests of note were Va$htie Kola, Brooklyn Circus‘ Ouigi Theodore, and photographers Mel D. Cole and William Yan.
