The new AW2017 collection has recently landed on the Hayworths online store and I’m really excited to become an official UK stockist of Chie Mihara designer shoes. There were so many gorgeous designs from the AW2017 Chie Mihara range that I was able to choose from, but being a small business I had to ‘reign myself in’ and choose 3 styles to begin with…. Two of which are exclusive, limited editions only available through Hayworths – the lovely 'Camille' T-bars and the unique ‘Greta’ slip ons. There is also the super cute ‘Carmen’ Suede heel.
When searching for shoe brands to add to the collection I’m always thinking about 3 important things; 1. Beautiful design 2. Super quality and 3. Comfort and wearability. Also, I very much steer clear from ‘fast fashion’ and firmly believe that it’s important to invest in shoes that are durable and you can wear for years to come.
The Chie Mihara collection is hand made in Spain in an on-site factory at the companies headquarters in Alicante and the entire manufacturing process is manual. The head designer Chie has been designing shoes since 2002 with a focus of offering women something different, footwear designed by women for women, with a priority placed on design and comfort, drawing on vintage influences ranging from the 1930s to the 1980s.
All going well, if the Chie Mihara collection is well received then that will enable me to order more styles in the future! Fingers crossed.
You can shop the collection now through the Hayworths online store. But don’t procrastinate too long…. :) stock is limited.
Til next time
