BRAND FOCUS - POLLACKI
Haunting cries pierce the blackness of night, as the wind hits like a welterweight, pummelling and jabbing icy cold blasts against the smooth glass panes. Bent into a capital C, my head leaning so far forward that my beard nearly touches my knobby knees, balancing the weight of a thousand worries across my shoulders. A short intake of breath as the dog's fur felt like silk against my skin exposed by the crop of my raw linen trousers. The pallor of a winter evening descends rapidly over the office. Bursts of colour like warm summer rays hit my slouching eyelids, as my eyes focus they fall upon a myriad striking shapes, rich textures and warm hues, formed from Pollacki's footwear collection
