The lux Monarch slipper by Herring Shoes

By Laura on September 19th, 2011

The slipper seems to be making a bit of a comeback this season, and one of our favourites has to be the Monarch shoe by Herring. We can’t help but imagine Hugh Hefner rocking these around his mansion; smoking jacket on, pipe in hand and bunnies on call. These shoes, as the name suggests is fit for royalty, from its velvet upper to the hand embroidered ‘Herring Crest.’

This beautiful house shoe has been hand made in the UK, and requires a certain style to really pull off…. In other words you can’t just throw these on with any old bathrobe. The quilted lining of the shoe ensures comfort and warmth, while the strong leather sole and heel ensures the slipper is hard wearing. We know they are meant to be worn inside… but we would almost be tempted to rock them outside too.

The Monarch shoe is available for £135 in 5 colourways including Navy, Purple, Green, Wine Red and Black velvet.

Victor Glemaud S/S 2008

Considering Victor Glemaud’s first collection was only Spring/Summer 2007, he’s garnered a remarkable amount of attention in a very short time. It’s no coincidence that he was a publicist before he moved into the fashion world, although he also worked as a design advisor for Paco Rabanne for a year before opening his own line in July 2006.

The sleepwear influence dominates Glemaud’s S/S 08 range with pyjama-like shirts, shoes that could be mistaken for slippers, layered cardigans and colourful smart shorts. The range is also designed with hot weather in mind – you’d be surprised at how many designers don’t do this – so the materials are light and airy. Stockists are pretty hard to find at the moment, especially ones that supply to the EU. For now, you’ll have to do with this interview on Glemaud’s essential items.

Eco Slipper from Po-Zu

By admin on December 19th, 2007

PozuslipperChristmas is a time of slippers. Not only are they inevitably going to be sitting under the majority of Christmas trees this season, they are also obligatory footwear for Christmas day, when it’s traditional to go for as long as possible without getting dressed. That’s what the festival was originally about, the whole birth of Christ thing only came when the Romans introduce Christianity to these shores. Fact.
Po-zu have created the ultimate slipper (£70). It really is the gift that keeps on giving. The slippers use no harmful chemical glues and are designed to be repairable so should last a while. When they are finally finished, they are 99% biodegradable, which is high by anyone’s estimation. Even the shoe box is degradable and can be planted in the earth where it will sprout seeds.
Ok, so they look a bit like Ugg(ly) boots but as slippers, I think they’re quite stylish.
