ABOUT: "In this modern world of instant gratification, vast social connectivity, and mass produced factory fashion, the ancient ways of our ancestors can easily be overlooked and under-valued. When we now have the ability to order a product from halfway around the globe with just the click of a mouse, things like quality craftsmanship and service tend to become relics of a forgotten past. At Lapstone & Hammer, our mission is to honor the artistry and traditions of the past while fully embracing contemporary culture and fashion. Lapstone & Hammer is a premier lifestyle brand specializing in Contemporary Menswear and Premium Sportswear with an emphasis on artistry, innovation and craftsmanship. The lifestyle we espouse includes not only the goods we sell, but a complete aesthetic that is exemplified by supporting and collaborating with creators of all kinds to translate the passion they have for their crafts to the world at large... in beautiful and unique spaces that are themselves works of art. The lapstone & hammer are tools traditionally used by cobblers to make shoes. Our name pays homage to act of creation in all of its artistic manifestations. This concept is rooted in the love and passion an artist feels for his craft. That ethos is what we embody as a brand: taking pride in presenting an immersive experience that combines high quality products while celebrating creative artistry in a one-of-a-kind retail/gallery/performance environment. Lapstone & Hammer will combine the spirit of those early artisans with the contemporary aesthetic of today’s top creative minds and premium brands. We have established a wholly original retail experience that is essential for the cultural connoisseur, sneaker enthusiast and well-dressed gentleman, as well as being enjoyable for the casual consumer and unknowing passer-by."

ABOUT: “I was born in London but I now call Philadelphia my home. In 2007, I left corporate America to become a female entrepreneur, and that is when BUS STOP shoe boutique was born. I became a shoe designer in 2015. My first shoe collection – 12 BUS STOP X oxfords – were designed in collaboration with All Black, a designer I’ve had a relationship with from day one. Since then I have launched eight collections, all classics with a twist, timeless and season-less which means they won’t be out of fashion when the next trend hits, and they can be worn throughout the year. I’m always adding new styles to the ever growing BUS STOP X silhouettes. Women feel good, different, unique, edgy, and above all comfortable when they rock a pair of my designs. Our recent Tie Dye collection was to die for featuring sneakers, oxfords as well as booties. The athleisure mini-capsule collection launched Winter 2020, who doesn’t love sneakers? Each collection is exclusive, limited edition and only available at BUS STOP in-store and online. 2021, we will be announcing a new snakeskin footwear look...stay tuned. For a full shopping experience, visit our boutique in Philly to shop a curated selection of international designer shoes for women and our eponymous BUS STOP X brand or shop online 24/7.Located in historic Fabric Row, the boutique is a gem of a find.
