"Shoes are a fetish, in the true meaning of fétiche - an object with mystical or magical powers. An object to enthral and entice."
To celebrate the launch of the brand new Harvey Nichols website, and the launch of the Mary Katrantzou Spring Summer 2014 collection in store, Harvey Nichols & Mary Katrantzou teamed up to explore the inspiration behind the new collection, the fetishism of shoes. In an exclusive studio interview, Mary explains the ins and outs of her whirlwind technical exploration and opens up about the process of launching of her own e-commerce site. Three industry insiders were on hand to style the collection in their own way, each one reprasentative of the three distinct aesthetic adjuncts found within the collection. Alexander Fury, Fashion Editor at the Independent and close friend of Mary explains his love of unisex dressing and brogues, while Leandra Medine, the infamous Man Repeller, shows off her collection of sneakers, and street style star Nasiba Adilova reveals her obsession for luxury and high heels.
