Waltz into winter in Tabitha Simmons

Don’t think for a second that the winter months means you don’t need to put in the legwork to perfect your pins because, really now, rain-beaten leather boots are never becoming.  As we enter party season, it’s imperative that your feet feel festive too and if there was ever a shoemaker who could make sure of that, it would have to be Tabitha Simmons.




This season, with an AW14 collection that can be taken from day to night, trotted around the office or alternatively dotted around the dance floor, Simmons offers a wealth of wearability in a number of chic staple designs. Defined by exquisite materials and likewise craftsmanship that comes naturally to Veneto’s master Italian cobblers, Simmons AW14 collection ticks all the boxes for a good shoe this season. Her 14th collection in total sees Simmons draw on her English heritage for a whimsical Victorian sentiment in romantic brushed leather and suede and rich berry hues.

Not content with simply one fabulous collection this season Simmons has also paired with footwear e-commerce site Shoescribe for a glitzy little capsule collection that should be on your list of ingredients for a party well done. Reinterpreting her signature sandal for the collaboration, Tabitha draws inspiration from her favourite Hollywood greats of the 1950s and ’60s in a variety of modern colour ways.

Namely, Simmons draws from Joseph L Mankiewicz’s classic All About Eve, a film which isn’t short on glamorous party settings, the kind that have inspired Tabitha to “create something classic but hyper-feminine after one of the most inspiring movies of all time, All About Eve.”
