What can you expect from a shoe brand that summons you to look at the sky? “Regarde Le Ciel: look at the sky!” What can you expect? Quiet a lot, as it turn out!
Each individual shoe will contribute to satisfying your personal desires and aspirations. Longing for beauty, health, happiness and love - yes! Shoes can do all that! We could tell you how, but this would break the spell. This ambiguity and openness to imagination increases its fascination, so we’ll just let you enjoy them instead. While you do, you should know that Regarde Le Ciel is a mindful brand. It maintains your personal desires and wishes, without doing such at the expense of others. We pay attention to fair production, fair material procurement and are always looking for the optimal transportation method, so as to not strain the world beyond measure.
Rest assured we do not sacrifice quality craftsmanship for price. Because, while people may think they want shoes to be cheap, nobody actually likes a cheap shoe. We create a craftsmanship based on correctly elaborated and processed materials. We have adopted a few words, which comprehensively define the brand - longing, mindfulness, quality, craft and premium materials.
These five words receive highest recognition from our international shoe buyers – such recognition is a mandatory requirement. These words should not only be mirrored in the feelings received from wearing the shoes, but should also be mirrored in the shoes aesthetics. This combination is the essence of Regarde Le Ciel shoes. Unique and translucent shoes - an essential in delivering handcrafted products.
When other shoes are of tedious quality or follow unsustainable trends, slip into a pair of Regarde Le Ciel shoes, tilt your head, and look at the heavens.
Filip Rasschaert not only speaks with passion about leather, but he can do such in six languages. The founder and owner of Sinopro Trading which includes the shoe brands, Regarde Le Ciel, Regarde La Terre and Regarde l’Amant, fascinates each and everyone with his deep knowledge of leather. For leather is where he has his professional roots.
For leather, he develops a passion that repeatedly inspires his employees, his business partners and his customers. Running into Filip, he either comes straight from the airport or must be there immediately afterwards. Leather he buys himself from local markets, no matter the distance or location - America, Africa, Europe, Asia. The sole limit known to Filip is quality. In a price dictated footwear market, it goes without saying he has exceptionally clear limits that he does not fall below. These quality limits are present in each shoe’s looks and feels every time you step into one of his shoes.
Those who love leather come to realize the complexity that lies behind producing an exceptional shoe. Filip has learned from the best, and has thus become himself one of the best. For many years he has produced with Sinopro Trading for large brands. Brands are conscious of his knowledge, and Filip has the mastery and expert knowledge of what he is doing.
Since 2014 Filip has sown the seeds and nourished the three shoe brands Regarde Le Ciel, Regarde La Terre and Regarde l’Amant. With a new digital business model, he is reacting to big changes in the footwear market. He not only follows this business model, but also tries to shape these changes to best suit and put his stamp on.
Through his love for leather, he has in his very own way developed leather that has no animal origins. The result, as might be expected, an artificial, “no-leather”. Artificial leather, which convinces him as a leather lover. The market is set to look at leather shoes that no longer use animal leather.
One wonders how Filip creates his passion for detail. You really must ask yourself because he’s already on his way to the airport...
