“Classic silhouettes with unusual textured leathers and materials.”
“A modern take on the Cuban heel.”
“Someone who likes my shoes.”
THE COLLECTION: “The beauty in practical materials and their possible combinations; sturdy coated linens, reflective cloths and plastic covered toecaps protecting very pale fragile, almost white nubucks, grosgrain trims and very fine meshes; adding another dimension to a shoe; bringing the inside out through exposed seams and therefore linings; creating new contexts in which to present beautiful materials.”
FAVOURITE COLLECTION TO DATE: “This one.”
WHO EMBODIES THE SPIRIT OF YOUR BRAND: “The wise woman."
