Here at Rachel Simpson we have always loved green shoes, but when we decided to create our best selling Mimosa shoe in a stunning rich forest green suede, we had no idea how much love there would be for it. As one of 2019's hottest colours, forest green is the first darker colour we've ever done in this style, and we have to say- it works! The main shoe is crafted from rich forest green suede with detailing in metallic gold leather- creating an absolutely stunning combination. Mimosa forest green is perfect for an autumn or winter wedding, or to complete an evening outfit. It has a definite vintage influence and would look amazing with a 2os or 30s style look, but the colour brings it bang up to date. To be honest it's a colour which goes with just about anything,
Mimosa is one of the most pinned shoes on Pinterest, and most featured on Instagram and we love to think it has been such an important part of so many special days over the years is something we feel incredibly honoured about- long may it continue!
Like Mimi, the inspiration behind Mimosa is something of a mystery. It has definite undertones of art deco, the teardrop shaped pieces at the front seemingly creating the iconic fan shape. However many people liken it to the wings of a butterfly, or the petals of a beautiful flower and there is undeniably a natural influence at work too. The truth is, Rachel herself isn’t sure- the idea was just there, so perhaps it’s a combination of all the things she loves, all bundled up together in one adorable shoe.
One of the more practical reasons Mimosa is such a hit is down to it’s incredible fit- whether your feet are big or small, wide or narrow we’re pretty sure this iconic style will not only fit but also flatter, and the only problem you’ll have is taking them off!
Mimosa fits true to size, however if you are between sizes we would recommend you size down.
