Our lat­est col­lec­tion...

We have done a beau­ti­ful new col­lec­tion for Kings­man by George Clev­er­ley which is sold on­line via Mrporter.com. This is now in sea­son seven and do­ing very well. We also re­leased sev­eral new an­tique calf colours which are amaz­ing and have been sell­ing very well! Each one in a spring/sum­mer fin­ish and all gor­geous, fin­ished by hand.

Grow­ing the brand over time…

We are in­spired by the to­tal or­ganic way. We have never ad­ver­tised or pro­moted the brand. Our busi­ness is by word of mouth that comes from mak­ing ex­cep­tional shoes. We have many high pro­file clients which has helped a lot as well. This year marked our 60th year an­niver­sary and we have grown at a healthy and steady pace over the years which is im­por­tant. Our fo­cus is on qual­ity and keep­ing our ex­ist­ing clients happy, not about in­creas­ing sales.

Work­ing with Daniel Day Lewis on the set of the movie Phan­tom Thread...

This was a spec­tac­u­lar ex­pe­ri­ence and in­cred­i­ble. Daniel Day Lewis is a per­sonal friend of mine, so I was hon­oured to be in­cluded in such a won­der­ful film. One of the most amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences in my life.

My ex­otic hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions…

Ei­ther Ne­vis at St. Kitts, the Mal­dives or Har­bour Is­land. My favourite ho­tels…

Sandy Lane Ho­tel in Bar­ba­dos be­cause it is sim­ply lux­ury at the high­est lev­els. The staff, ser­vices, cli­mate & wa­ter are true par­adise for a va­ca­tion.

The Ritz Carl­ton in Tokyo is the most amaz­ing ho­tel for views, ser­vice and is one of the best city ho­tels in the world.

Ho­tel Le Sirenuse is a dream come true in Italy! Nes­tled among the patch­work of pas­tel-hued build­ings that line the ver­tig­i­nous coastal vil­lage of Posi­tano, this bou­tique ho­tel boasts – un­sur­pris­ingly – splen­did views from ev­ery which way. Whether you’re re­lax­ing in your room, decked out with the ex­quis­ite ce­ramic tiles for which the area is fa­mous, lounging by the cliffedge pool or feast­ing in the leafy La Sponda restau­rant, sweep­ing panora­mas of the Unesco-recog­nised Amalfi Coast never let you for­get you’re in Italy’s chicest sea­side spot.

My favourite city ...

Lon­don! It’s got ev­ery­thing for ev­ery­one, ex­cept year round sun. I think Lon­don has grown into the hub of the world.

My travel must-haves…

iphone, my briefcase & a good pair of shoes! It’s im­por­tant to have a rou­tine and items which make your lifestyle easy when you travel. I pack very well af­ter a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence.
