The Freedom Of A Tight Brief


The restrictions that are put upon us in the construction of a shoe often dictate the most interesting creative designs.

I have a great working relationship with my manufacturer and we strive to make the impossible possible whether it is sampling brand new ideas or revisiting old patterns and tried and tested designs that often become pertinent again. They are such experienced craftsmen, their knowledge having been passed down the generations. We re-work patterns together, try them on, choose details like linings, stitch colours etc and discuss further possibilities over a long lunch – well, when in Spain…

It’s the details that inspire a new collection but it’s the solutions through techniques that make it real.
