Isabelle Nude Shoes
There are shoes which are elegant, some that are striking and others that are just so, so pretty. Then there is Isabelle, which manages to be all three. Whilst the original design was influenced by truly vintage art deco motifs, the shoe still retains a really modern look and works just as well with a pair of skinnies and it does with an occasion dress. On it’s own it’s really elegant as the contrasting metallic binding does all the talking, but if you fancy adding a bit of sparkle we designed the Petal shoe clip especially for Isabelle and the two look great together. When Isabelle first came into the collection, the heel was just slightly higher than shoes we’d done before and had a slightly different curve at the back. It’s a subtle difference, but if you look at the side profile it really gives the shoe a certain elegance.
It took a number of attempts to get the design for Isabelle down on to paper. We had the idea in our heads, to have two art deco fan shapes ‘hugging’ the foot, but could we draw it? Could we heck! The side profile was easy, but somehow that had to connect in the middle, and all attempts ended up as pretty wonky drawings! Eventually we drew the design up in 3D so we could fully work out how it would fit, and ended up sending this plastic forme to our factory for sampling, along with the (slightly dodgy) sketches. It paid off though- we knew there was a shoe in amongst all those doodles!
Accessorise with the stunning art deco Iona nude leather bag.
True to size but will give during wear, so if you're in between sizes go for the smaller of the two to avoid the shoe slipping during wear.
