I can definitely see those Westbournes taking up residence in the shoe closet
I haven't seen the catalogue yet, let alone the collection, but from the pictures here, I am unable to see a great difference to the standard JL collection: the Westbourne
looks to me suspiciously like the City II
- the Lucca
is the same as the Lounge
Apart from the larger and different choice of colours, there might be some minor design changes, like a change in the perforation or a different medallion, but essentially they seem to be the same designs on the same lasts with a different name applied.
Nobody seems to have bothered to design a new collection on a blank sheet of paper.
