A Shoe In



“When I’m designing, the inspiration can come from anywhere: music, art, photography and I’m often inspired by a particular iconic figure or a moment in fashion such as the ’80s mood of post-punk pop. Lately on my iPod, I have been listening to a lot of Adele and the new Kanye West album. An all time favourite is the Foo Fighters; they always energize me creatively!” – Tamara Mellon, OBE Founder & Chief Creative Officer, Jimmy Choo.

Here, on the heels of her departure from Jimmy Choo, Life+Times takes a look at some of the highlights from Mellon’s first foray into men’s footwear, a collection that was inspired by the Mod aesthetic with a hint of a 1960s Mayfair playboy.
