for Amy Conway
My designs for Amy were based her delightful paintings and writings and incorporated her imagery and words.
It’s all about relationships… we’re rewriting fashion on our own terms with comfort, simplicity, and a big bold dash of panache!
These retro inspired peep toe sandals were made in Italy of laser cut black suede layered over pearlised ivory napa leather with Italian silk lining and Swarovski crystal buckles.
For Kowalli, I designed a hat and pair of baby booties from Polartec to complement their best-selling Babywearing carrier cover.
The artisans who work the leather into this magnificent state follow a centuries old tradition and yet are innovators and artists in their own right. Season after season I’ve collected these unique swatches. Many have been used to make my shoes but many more were considerations in a designer’s endless pick and choose.
While my shoes and bags are designed by me and made in Italy and now in Portugal as well, the jewelry is designed and made entirely by me.
Each pair of earrings is a one of a kind combination as I only have enough leather for one. The leathers are from the best tanneries in Italy and the design of angles is clean and geometric. The earrings have movement and they are whisper light.
