I design footwear to fall in love with and stay in love with. When designing new collections, I ask myself whether they would make you feel free to stride out, to ‘go anywhere and do anything’.
Some styles become ‘old friends’ that I wear daily till they die, while others become favourites that I don’t wear enough. Neither should be superfluous, none are meant to be a one-night-only purchase. They are built to be dependable, with destinations and celebrations of life at the heart of my inspiration.
ONE HUNDRED YEARS ON
PENELOPE'S PICKS OF THE SEASON
INFINITY SATIN SANDAL
"Khaki and pink has been my favourite combination of colours since my school days. It reminds me of an English country garden. I've got a couple of weddings this summer and I’ll wear these with a pretty pink dress. But I’d also wear them with khaki cargo pants, a blazer and shirt for meetings in the city. In the winter I’d wear them with fishnet popsocks."
HERA METALLIC SANDAL
"It’s my ambition to have just 1 perfect party shoe in the collection. While we are a brand that is all about the great outdoors, I never ever wear other people’s shoes. So these are for me, with party time in mind."
JUNGLE PONY LEOPARD TRAINER
"My old Jungle boots are falling apart, time for new ones. These are the hardest working boots in my collection!"
OSCAR PONY CAMO BOOT
"I’m a country girl at heart and love to walk. Camouflage colours to go with denim, for travel and for walks, a staple by the back door."
