How did NEOUS come about?
I spent a lot of time in the marketplace in my job at Harper’s Bazaar and really wanted to create a product with a unique, minimalist design aesthetic, made in Italy and using the highest-quality leathers at an accessible price point, which, at that time, didn’t really exist.
What’s your mission for the brand?
In a world of fast fashion, we design our shoes to transcend trends. We want NEOUS to embody timeless, carefully considered and crafted footwear that is designed to last. Our collections are minimalist, pared-back and considered.
Who inspires your designs?
Friends, travel, art, culture… and I’m always drawing inspiration from the radical design principles of the Bauhaus school.
