Sew Cute Rain Boots!

Sew Cute Rain Boots for Plueys

Surprise! My rain boots are finally being launched this week by Plueys! They’re called Sew Cute and feature my vintage buttons in a Moroccan-inspired colour scheme of cream, brown, rust and navy blue. Not my usual colours at all but I think they look very elegant, and will be perfect for the UK’s rainy Autumn and snowy Winter.

Sew Cute is a limited edition design and will be available  in a range of sizes from 3.5 to 9 (UK). The most exciting part for me is the signature lining, featuring my name! How amazing to know people will be walking around with my name on their shoes.

If you like what you see, they’ll be on sale from tomorrow from the Plueys web shop, and also from various stockists throughout the world. I may have a few pairs spare to add to my own shop too – I haven’t seen the boots in real life yet and can’t wait til mine arrive! Do you like them?
