Founded in New York in 2013, Sabah is Mickey Ashmore’s easy leather-based footwear model, and it is all primarily based on his time in Turkey. While working in Istanbul, he was gifted a pair of conventional leather-based slippers, which have been Turkish by nature however not part of the trendy Turkish wardrobe. He wore them continuous, incomes compliments from each pals within the U.S. and Turkish natives. His obsession led to Sabah, and its first two merchandise, the heeled Sabah and the backless Baba.
But each Turkey and its leather-based served as extra than simply inspiration — they have been the muse. As such, even when Sabah would ultimately broaden past slip-ons and slippers — all of us knew it’d occur sooner or later — the 2 would stay central to the discharge.
Take Sabah Bois, for instance — the model’s first-ever perfume. Developed with acclaimed perfumer Carlos Huber (Vacation Eau de Parfum, Arquiste), Bois a fusion of the chaparral panorama of the American Southwest (the place Sabah has its U.S. manufacturing facility) and the desert landscapes of Eastern Turkey and the Middle East. The scent is austere but distinctive, unique but wholly acquainted, refined but enduring — all adjectives one would possibly use to explain the model’s sneakers.
Featuring base notes of leather-based, patchouli and smoke, center layers of nutmeg and desert sage and floor accents of cyprus and balsam fir, Bois embraces Sabah’s world nature. And the amber-colored bottle nods to its main business: leather-based shoemaking. Because it is topped a vegetable-tanned leather-based cap, the bottle will change with time, patinaing every time you attain for it.
