Green Wedding Shoes X Rachel Simpson
Posted on March 21 2019
Our beautiful new collection launched on Valentines day and we are loving your feedback! Today we'd like to tell you a little bit about our exclusive style Zadie.
Zadie is our very first collaboration with the incredible American blog Green Wedding Shoes.
We first met Jen (owner of GWS) at Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, a trade event which takes place every April. She was so lovely and so in touch with her brides we instantly knew there was a shoe to be designed! Her blog fits in with our quirky and charming brides aesthetic and we think this shoe is the perfect amalgamation of both our creative ideas. Our gorgeous Zadie shoe compromises hand cut delicate leather flowers which are 3D moulded in a champagne gold colour- a perfect shade for a wide variety of wedding dress styles.
We worked through the design process together, each offering a different perspective on our brides, starting with pages of sketches trying to capture the elegance and fun our brides bring to their weddings. We are so pleased with Zadie, and even created a new logo for our collaboration which you can find stamped inside the shoes in gold foiling- GWS X Rachel Simpson.
As with all of our Rachel Simpson shoes, these beauties are hand made in Alicante, Spain by very skilled shoe makers, and each shoe takes hours to create, from pattern cutting, to final finishing.
Says Rachel, “we wanted to create something which encapsulated the spirit of Green Wedding Shoes- super on trend and exciting, whilst being effortlessly wearable both for your wedding and beyond”. Green Wedding Shoes’ Jen adds, "For Zadie, we wanted to create a shoe elegant and special enough for our brides' big day, yet in the moment and whimsical enough for other special occasions or just a night on the town. Because, why make such a lovely shoe that you can only wear once? I couldn't be happier with the results and cannot wait to see looks our brides pull together with Zadie."
We couldn't agree more and can’t wait to see how our beautiful Rachel Simpson and Green Wedding Shoes brides style this shoe for their wedding. It’s also an ideal party shoe you can wear again and again after the big day!
