On Saturday, I stopped by Sky Valet in DC to pick up a pair of shoes I was having resoled and a pair of Tingley rubber shoe covers. Â (The latter purchase was pretty timely considering the weather in DC today.) Â I had a nice conversation with the two owners, where I got the following tidbits of information: Edward Green is coming at the end of March. Â Price/pair will be $850. Â Sky Valet is planning on having 5-6 models to start, and gradually adding more. Â There will be a trunk show in September with the entire line available on a made-to-order basis. Â Prices are expected to be several hundred dollars above RTW. Â Start saving those pennies. Sky Valet is adding the Victor Lucchino brand in a few weeks. Â This brand is more fashion forward (think Cesare Paciotti), and a significant departure from Sky Valet's generally conservative offerings. Â There will be 2-3 models to start. Â Sky Valet is also adding the Alvanti (sp?) brand in a few months. Â That styling of that brand is somewhere between Alden and Victor Lucchino.
