LABEL LOVER Brand Origin New York
company background With experience working under Lee Alexander Mcqueen, Narciso Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan, designer Paul Andrew has gone on to create his namesake label of exquisite and eye-catching footwear, which is exclusively available at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong.
Design signatures “Donna [Karan] instilled in me the importance of originality, quality, fit and comfort,” Andrew says. His most iconic shape, the pump with the curved side (Zenadia, above right) fits wide and narrow feet equally well.
brand philosophy “My goal has been to create shoes that are elegant with a joyful twist, and that are also simultaneously comfortable,” Andrew reveals. His spring/ summer 2015 collection draws inspiration from the small Greek island of Patmos, with a bright palette ranging from Aegean blue and pomegranate to fig green. The winner of the CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund in 2014, Paul Andrew counts Tory Burch among his mentors
