Shot in collaboration with Tamara Mellon
Once in a while I will ditch the sneakers, ditch the flats and ditch any footwear, that may at first glance, scream sensible…
because after all, it’s all about finding balance.
And with that, cue my new Tamara Mellon Frontline Heels.
As the co-founder of Jimmy Choo, Tamara Mellon knows shoes, this is a major understatement ;)
Launching her own namesake brand in an effort to redefine what luxury means, there is no compromising on style, craftsmanship or materials under the Tamara Mellon label. What you will find, is a commitment to all the things we expect from a luxury design house but with a wallet-friendly final price tag curbing all the unnecessary mark ups. This is partly in thanks to the relationships Tamara herself has forged over the years with family-run factories in Italy. It is because of these relationships, that the label has access to this level of quality that runs decades-deep…andĀ I certainly prefer to wear something rooted in history and quality rather than something mass-produced.
But I do digress, because at the end of the day I want style, not cookie-cutter trends but rather a twist on a classic and innovative design.
Bringing me back to my Frontline heels. Sky-high and suede, these are jet black, stappy sandals with strategic cutouts that will no-doubt, be the perfect accompaniment to every little black dress. But, since I’m impatient and I wanted instant gratification, I took right out of the box and decided to road test asap. Opted for the unexpected and paired with oversized and slouchy pieces. There will be plenty of slinky dresses, summer parties, fashion events and New Year’s plans these shoes will see, but today they are working overtime and going day to night with a street-wear inspired look.
