You may have read in my journal about the Luxury Experience event with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in Sunningdale where I mentioned that I had designed a pair of shoes inspired by the new Rolls-Royce Wraith. Here in close-up are these shoes. Combining light grey nappa with royal blue stingray, they reflect the bold colour statement of the showroom model. I like to think of my shoes as a timeless classic, elegant lines executed using the finest materials.
Stingray is a remarkable leather. The Japanese had used it for armour such is its durability. It has taken a great deal of trial and error to learn how to work with it, and it really takes its toll on my fingers. I think it is an excellent material and with the right focus it delivers a brilliant result.
