It is that time of year when we all look for excuses to go sandal shopping – Summer! Not that we need any excuse to indulge our shoeholism, but it is summer when that shoe wardrobe seems to cry out for a makeover; a new infusion of life with chic summer styles, sexy sandals and more. So for the summer issue we’ve put together a superb mix of some practical tips to avoid foot odor, brand new shoe trends as well as some fascinating old techniques still in use. And this summer we make it our business to introduce you to the some truly fascinating names in the shoe business!
The Vanderbilt family is as close to royalty as Americans ever got and we’re ecstatic to tell you all that we learned from our exclusive tête-à-tête with Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin; the recording artiste and entrepreneur extraordinaire from that very blue blooded family. Also included are Anastasia Radevich, an artist who currently expresses her creativity via the shoes she creates; Piggy Pillows is a name that has nothing to do with pork or with bedding; you’re sure to agree with Michelle Ojea when she tells you how beautiful shoes deserve beautiful feet and that beautiful feet deserve comfort; Gemma Kahng, the hugely famous fashion designer who is known for dressing the likes of Sharon Stone and Madonna during her heyday; Irregular Choice, the quirky shoes created by British shoe designer Dan Sullivan; shoes that are fun and utterly modern. Side by side with those thoroughly contemporary creations you also get to find out about traditional shoe making techniques from India that have altered little over the ages.
Phew! That’s rather a lot of amazing stuff we packed into this issue for you! Saving the best for the last: Meet Christian Siriano, the bright young spark of the fashion firmament who won the fourth season of American design competition show Project Runway, becoming the series’ youngest winner; someone who shot to prominence when he launched his namesake collection, our current cover star!
