Rae Jones is the footwear label from shoe trend specialist and textile designer Rachel Jones. With nearly a decades experience forecasting key trends for the international fashion footwear industry, she felt it was time to use that extensive insight to create her own slick yet eclectic footwear brand. And to provide the market with what it has most lacked.
She is inspired by the inventiveness of iconic 1940s shoe designers Beth and Herbert Levine, and is passionate about creating what is too often hard to find in footwear style that is accessible day to day, without sacrificing distinction.
If you read my blog you will know I simply love retro clothes and shoes and Rae Jones’s designs are up there with the best. She has her shoes made in Portugal from high-grade Italian leather and uses unusual materials and juxtaposition which is a Rae Jones signature: tumbled grains and high shine leathers with suede, together with sophisticated colour combinations. Styles show a nod to history in their details but avoid easy pigeon-holing as vintage inspired.
Her shoes are a real statement, and you will be delighted to hear they are currently having an amazing sale!
Best foot forward…
