“Unconventional shaping with architecturally inspired threads are at the fore.”
“That the company is completely independent.”
“Someone who makes my shoes a real part of her life – both day and evening. The Skovgaard woman has an eye for considered pared-down detailing and a preference for intellectual sophistication – rather than a girly one”.
“The saw sole ankle wedge boot but love my new trashbag bootie.”
“A flagship store opening in the near future.”
“I don’t go and ‘seek’ because you can be sure inspiration will fail to come to you. People watching is a good start though…”
