Cipher's Libertine model. Apparently inspired by Oscar Wilde.

cipherCipher's main man, Collin Thompson.Last year, the launch of Cipher caused a stir amongst Hong Kong's fashionistas.

Canadian film-maker-turned-designer Collin Thompson is based out of Hong Kong and says in Hip Hong Kong, that "the city is an international explosion of cultures colliding, dizzying futuristic buildings, the neon, and a dynamic lifestyle -- the city and its place in the world is one of the main inspirations for Cipher."

Waxing lyrical about our home-city aside, we love Cipher because: 1. The shoes really go together with anything, walking that fine line between dressy and casual, making the wearer look like they care just enough; 2. Collin Thompson is kinda cute.

The latest collection available online goes back to basics with black and white blocks highlighted by a bit of glossy faux patent leather.
