“I was thinking about the shape and form of waves,” reveals the designer from his Mount Street flagship. The curves of a crest graphically curl around sandals and open toe nude mesh shoe boots. The idea also manifests as golden metalwork moulded into wedge soles.
Elsewhere, there are suede mules lifted up on gold cigarette heels, point-toed flats in wild turquoise snakeskin and glossy candy pink patent styles with decorative neon metal toe caps. The designer has also elegantly tackled that tricky task of the mid-height heel. “It’s the hardest heel height to make chic!” he admits, before adding, “it’s so easy to come up with designs boasting towering heels, but getting the proportions right on lower versions is always a challenge”. Mission accomplished.
