You may have never heard of shoe designer Michael Lewis, but you certainly know his work.
He’s designed shoes for the likes of Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, Tom Ford at Gucci, Christopher Bailey at Burberry and Kurt Geiger. Lewis was trained in ready-to-wear, and learned the craft of cobbling at Louis Vuitton.
Now, Lewis has been brought on by Tom Ford to consult on shoes for his women’s collection, which is likely to launch over the next year.
Lewis’ designs for his own collection are both ornate and graphic, so we’re excited to see what he comes up with to complement Ford’s sleek lines.
Additionally, WWD reports that Caroline Tixier, a women’s ready-to-wear designer at Givenchy, and Pablo Coppola, an accessories designer at Alexander McQueen, will also be consulting for Ford.
