What does Penelope Chilvers mean to you and what is your connection with the brand? I just love Penelope Chilvers. Her boots have accompanied me on my most memorable adventures... from hosting TV shows in LA, trekking with gorillas in the Congo and on safari in Kenya.
Why did you choose your style of boot? What is it about this style that you like? I love the velvet lace-ups - I recently moved to NYC and I know I won't be taking them off.
What was it like to work with the brand for this project? To have my mum come to work with me was a dream. I love that Penelope chilvers is a family orientated brand and as my mum is basically my work advisor, therapist and best friend, it was as lovely project to be a part of.
How does creativity play a role in your family? My father is an entrepreneur so from a young age, we have been encouraged to dream big and put dreams into action so creativity is the at the heart of everything we do.
Penelope Chilvers makes shoes for travel and adventure. How will you wear yours? I will be wearing them all around New York! I’m excited for weird and wonderful things that are about to happen!
Pippa Jamie, Psychotherapist
Why did you choose your style of boot? What is it about this style that you like? I liked the fact I could wear them under trousers, easy to put on and off as they were pull on, but were also comfortable and smart enough to be worn with warm tights and a skirt.
How would you describe your daughter’s style? Individual
What do you two have in common? Our passion for helping other people with wellbeing, wanting to keep learning new things and being excited about projects. I think we are both genuinely happy and enthusiastic about life, sometimes maybe a little too much!
What good things have been passed down from generation to generation? Love of life, not to give up if things are going badly and loyalty.
Define family in 3 words: Love, Support, Happiness
