London-based Red by Wolves recently launched its third season of fresh footwear for fab fashionistas and fashionistos. Made by hand using traditional English techniques, German-born designer Lena Lipp creates a signature mix of sexy heels and stylishly unisex shoes and boots. Formally trained at Cordwainers, a shoe-making school in London, her distinct aesthetic was further honed during stints at Jonathan Kelsey, Alexander McQueen, and bespoke shoe maker Paul Thomas. These are everything you love about Loubies & Pierre Hardy - killer style with a hefty dose of edgy je ne sais quoi - minus the inflated, marketing-driven prices and label overexposure.
