The Tale Behind The Name

When Emmy creates a new design to add to Emmy London, more often than not there is an interesting tale to be told behind the design.                                                                                    
Inspired by a plethora of sightings, desirable objects and people that Emmy has come across throughout her travels, each shoe is created and named from Emmy's rich and eclectic treasure trove of memories.                          


'Whilst at school on my French exchange trip, I made friends with a French girl from Air Sur L'adour, South-Western France. Esme was a softly-spoken, sweet girl who was obsessed with  London and like me, reading Vogue.

We immediately bonded over our love for fashion and beautiful shoes....



Inspiring the design of Esme, the memories that I have of my French alliance's feminine and delicate demeanour is defined within the Esme shoe's classic peep-toe silhouette. The signature Emmy London cut out detailing adds an essence of spontaneity and fun-seeking that I experienced whilst visiting Esme in France'. x

The Esme is available from Emmy London Bespoke in a palette of neutral, bridal appropriate hues as well as contemporary brights and classic tones of navy, black and chocolate- The perfect investment piece for adding a touch of directional elegance to that very important event.
