Kurt Geiger x Matthew Williamson Orion Sandals, $195
These sandals feature a bespoke bohemian Ikat print with Velcro straps and branded rubber patches
“I set to work on a print which I felt would embody the bohemian spirit of the region. I took the well-known Mallorcan Ikat design as my starting point and then layered on hand-painted florals native to the area,” he explained further. “Rebecca worked the print onto products she felt right for Spring Summer 2023 collection and would work best to showcase the pattern.”
“We are both drawn to the bohemian spirit of the village and its people and wanted to express this in the accessories collection,” Williamson shared with Footwear News. “Color has been at the centre of both our brands and remains a key aspect [of] everything we create. In our own separate ways, I think we both want to offer uplifting and joyful pieces.”
