We are all hopeless romantics in some way as we have dreams and stories to tell. And why not be taken by a photograph or thought, and write our own stories? Countless have entered the world of a French House through their carré designs, or gone back through British history by having a trench coat on their shoulders. Nostalgic interpretations often end up better than the real thing, as evidenced by British dress as done by the Italians, and the value of craft in Japan.
Whether Duke or actress, Italy or France, Saville Row or designer, we all have our icons, and shoes we would love to fill.
