La Paire of Beautiful Shoes: Interview with Amy La
23 January, 2014
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amy La the designer behind up and coming shoe brand La Paire. Sydney born Amy is a very chic lady and this is reflected in her designs. I had the privilege of getting a sneak preview of her latest SS14 collection entitled Arabesque. This gorgeous capsule collection takes its inspiration from the colours and textures of Morocco, with subtle reflections of Moorish design and a palette redolent of the souks and markets of Marrakech. Amy set out to create a collection of fun, colourful and comfortable shoes that manage to be fresh and yet with a timeless element that will mean these shoes have a place in any well dressed woman’s wardrobe. I particularly love the turquoise and the red flower print sandals.
Amy formerly had a career as a cosmetics buyer working for prestigious department stores in Sydney and London. She was frustrated at not being able to find her perfect shoe and took the brave step of taking time out to retrain in shoe design and manufacture. Following your dream can be a daunting prospect, especially when you leave a successful career to set up your own brand, but I’m certain Amy has made the right choice,she is already selling on Atterly Road and as I predict La Paire is set to be playing with the big boys in no time!
Along with the beautiful sandals, Amy is expanding her range into ballet flats. I love them, as they are a little different featuring a pointed toe and showing just enough toe cleavage to give a subtle hint of sex appeal. These are super fun, flirty kittens, without the heel and I think they are going to be an absolute ‘must have’.
These are not throw-away fashion shoes, these are quality staples. They say luxury is in the detail and these shoes have it in abundance, beautiful soft leather and superbly finished, they really stand out from the masses. I’m looking forward to seeing more of La Paire shoes and watching the brand expand. Amy La is definitely a designer to keep your sights on for the future!
