So, just take a moment and bask in the lusciousness of these divine shoes…
Can you picture warm Spring afternoons with a simple skirt and an air blouse? I sure can! These shoes would be perfect for light outfits, or even worn as wedding shoes.
These amazing shoes are designed and made by Hetty Rose, a London design firm started by Henrietta Rose Samuels. Henrietta graduated from the London College of Fashion and Design, and then landed a prestigious internship with Georgina Goodman. She’s worked with handmade shoe companies in London and Italy.
Each pair of Hetty Rose shoes is handmade. And yes, I just used “handmade” and “shoes” in the same sentence. Now, you can buy a pair of Ready to Wear shoes. Or, if you’re in the UK, you can have Henrietta custom make you a pair. You want shoes that feel like they were made just for your feet? Well, those are the kinds of shoes Henrietta makes. They’re gorgeous, and extremely comfortable.
As you can probably guess from this post’s title, every pair in Hetty Rose’s Kimono Collection are made with vintage Japanese kimonos. And, Hetty Rose is committed to sustainable business practices.
What do you think? Personally, I’m in love with these shoes…and I don’t even wear heels. But the vintage kimono fabric is so colorful and elegant, it would be worth it to have a pair for summer parties!
