Fine Art dealer and co- founder of www.2dgalleries.com Florian Daguet-Bresson has great affection for his Lanvin first edition trainers.
He is a fan of the design and finds them elegantly grungy reminding him of his past as a student.
He wears them with suits and calls them his comfort blanket.
Rather than throwing them into the washing machine he carefully wipes them down with a damp sponge.
One of the laces recently tore and instead of replacing them he just tied them together with a knot.
"For me, these soles are more like objects than shoes!"
