A Tribute to Masterpieces of World Literature
Maison Oeuvre stays true to the house’s signature sophistication for this season. Adding to the literature series of collection are three dernier-cri statement socks. Bold, cool and original, not only do these stylish trio offer an extra flare to your outfit, but also embark on a global journey to explore the most-loved classic and contemporary literature from poem, memoir to fiction. Whether you’re a bibliophile or streetwear enthusiast, step up your socks game with Maison Oeuvre’s latest collection which tells compelling stories.
If you’re a cat lover like the Japanese bestselling contemporary novelist Haruki Murakami, this catchy cats styled pair is irresistible to be included in your sock-drobe. Cats hold a special place in Murakami’s heart as we see traces in many of his works such as The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore. He even ran a jazz bar and coffee shop named after his pet, Peter Cat, before making his debut as a writer.
Follow the American transcendentalist writer Henry David Thoreau to find inner zen as you ground yourself in nature. Characterized with forest silhouette in shades of spring green and snow white, this style pays tribute to his memoir – Life in the Woods – which is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings.
Le Bateau Ivre
A lyrical masterpiece by the renowned French poet Arthur Rimbaud, a cultural legacy in the 19th century. Featured with layers of wavy stripes in different hues of sea blue, a sinking boat and a detached anchor, it conceptualizes the vivid imagery and symbolism of the poem describing the drifting and sinking of a boat lost at sea in a fragmented first-person narrative.
