The rumor might have reached you by now, for this will be our last Navy post. Our last season. Our way to say “see you later” because we do not like the idea of goodbye’s.
The changes over the past two years have triggered us to rethink our situation and our future. We became super flexible with our showrooms and adapted to a nomad way of working. It led to the question “what is it, that we want to do next, after so many years in fashion?” The answer is: we do not know yet – but we want to explore new options and broaden our horizon.
We will stop at the peak of Navy Agency. 10 years of building the agency, using our experience, working with passion for all of our beautiful brands, with all the top tier Benelux retailers. It has been our pleasure.
This is not goodbye, only ‘see you later’.
We are grateful for our long term work relations and the trust everyone has placed in us over the years.

For its first shoe collaboration, Drôle de Monsieur was keen to work with a french brand recognized for its shoemaking expertise.
Being a leader with more than 110 years of experience in this area, it was clear that Paraboot was the accurate partner in order to offer a style matching the brand DNA. A lasting style, both elegant and sporty: the Paraboot Thiers Sport.
Loyal to the codes of the brand, the Thiers Drôle de Monsieur model is a tribute to the 90’s thanks to its color block. Mixing plain leather and suede with colors inspired by golf, an iconic and sophisticated sport which was one of the main inspiration in Drôle de Monsieur SS22 collection.
The collaboration includes shoe and a small apparel capsule collection consisting of a Paraboot-branded cap, a hoodie and golf balls.
The much-celebrated collaboration between Aries and New Balance is back, this time re-imagining the Fresh Foam 1080v11 trainer, with a capsule collection to match. Continuing with our ‘Unbalanced’ adage, this collection focusses on the concept of asymmetry, promoting uniqueness and personal achievement above perfection and winning. Technical running gear sits alongside mis-matched socks and asymmetric dye treatments, in a celebration of individuality and the escapist experience of running.
When we think of the Amalfi Coast, we think clear blue water, colorful little villages, steep cliffs and: Maison La Minervetta.

Aspesi has become a permanent guest in one of the private stays and takes part in the scenario of aesthetics, all by the guidelines of the owner of the house: Marco de Luca.

Positioned where streetwear meets high fashion, Aries takes an artisanal and artistic approach to both design and production. Born out of an ongoing love of trash culture, outsider art and illustration evident in the brand’s graphic language, each collection also reflects Creative Director Sofia Prantera’s continuing fascination with dyeing and printing techniques and a forensic approach to garment construction.
The brand’s continuous cultural output “Planet Aries” has been brought to life with the release of self published books, art shows, experiences and collaborations which range from the cult and collectable to the esoteric, working with different artists and image makers and brand partners who are an integral part of the Aries world and community.
Established in 2006, SUICOKE is a Japanese brand known for its performance sandals that are both comfortable and high-fashion. They first made their mark with small limited-edition accessories, such as hand painted ‘Matryoshka Dolls’ and later on started with footwear, such as suede boots. With complete creative freedom and a new fresh direction, Suicoke added sandals to their collection in the mid-2010s, where their worldwide appearance came to life. Many years later, they have collaborations with Palm Angels, Aime Leon Dore and Bathing Ape, among others.
