"It’s an honour to collaborate with Ilio Smeraldo - a company whose passions and ethics align with my own. I wanted to create the perfect ankle boot which I will wear this autumn/ winter and beyond. So London, so 70s, but versatile and chic with my favourite denim or tailoring or a vintage dress. Pattie Boyd and Grace Jones on my moodboard, the olive green platform ankle boot is my shoe of the season. A percentage of profits will go to support the work of Fondazione Fiorenzo Fratini - an organisation dedicated to improving the emotional and economic lives of the most vulnerable women and girls."
