Penelope Chilvers Spring Summer Collection
When outside the weather is that miserable, I must write about something summery, bright and colourful. Penelope Chilvers shoes are the right antidote to a rainy day. Penelope Chilvers is an artist first and foremost. Living in Spain of few years and having her holidays in her childhood in that country, she went to know the classic Spanish riding boots and espadrillas. So her collection is always inspired by those shoes she's worn when she was a child and they are linked to her fondest memories.
I love polka dots and these Mary Jane in satin are lovely as well as the Scoop satin with a cord wedge. The Mary Janes are available in zinc, indigo and geranium, while the Scoop wedges are available in watermelon, indigo and bronze. These are a sophisticated version of the espadrillas shoes in fabric I remember when I was a child. Penelope Chilvers designs the classic flat espadrillas as well in satin with the same range of colours of the Mary Jane and the Scoop models.
