Quick chat: Hudson Shoes

October 19, 2010 BY CAPSULESNEWS

Hudson Shoes' design director Vicky Haddon has been busy experimenting and expanding the brand's range of hand stitched moccasins with a Navajo influence for summer. Greek fishermen inspired a 2 tone mesh range, and a gladiator style for men and women as well. Looking ahead to AW 11/12, inspirations come from Victorian Hobnail boots and Vintage Military Boot patterns. "We've been playing around with mixing textures and colours of leathers as well as incorporating fabric and leather mixes. We are seeing a return to more cleaner lines and minimalistic patterns with heavier soles and toe shapes," she writes. Pics from the SS11 lookbook after the jump.
