I was lucky enough to bump into The Irish Times’s own Deirdre McQuillan after John Rocha (check out her coverage of day one here, incidentally) and we headed to Christopher Raeburn together before she ushered me into see Julian Hakes‘s shoe collection. I believe her words, when I said I had to go, were “no, no, you have to see these shoes!” And she was right.

His shoes look like handwriting – they are incredible pieces of art, which is no surprise as Hakes’s background is in architecture, so these shoes are seriously well thought out in terms of structure and balance. As we took a look at the collection, Sandra was busy trying them on, and they looked incredible on her. She declared that she “just couldn’t resist”. If I hadn’t been in a rush, I would’ve been right there with her!
