London based shoe designer and winner of the British Fashion Councils NewGen Award Liam Fahy releases his luxury Spring/Summer 2014 collection entitled "Summer Rain" at London and Paris Fashion Week.
Anthony Minghella’s adaptation of the Talented Mr Ripley, the Côte d'Azur, Victorian iron fencing and 1950’s Police uniforms are just some of the inspirations behind the collection that features espadrilles wedges, rocking clogs, lazered sandals, canvas booties, paisley prints and umbrellas for the typical English summer. Each one of Liam’s limited edition shoes are painstakingly inscribed with a signature nickel detailing on the sole, taking as much time to finish as the entire upper of a normal shoe and making each product a testament to Italian craftsmanship
“My favourite piece is the Fleur Sandal. It’s based on old Victorian iron stair rails with strong black silhouettes and natural curves. On the foot it really comes to life as brings out the contrast and natural proportions” - Liam Fahy
