Hastings, UK – Shoes with Terry de Havilland.

Projects in the past and current projects merging! A few years ago I was invited to the home of cobbler/ shoe maestro Terry de Havilland and his wife Lizzie – who lived in the seaside community of Hastings! The stories that were shared and the shoes – exquisite – daring and seductive! I had a few hours of photographing and was hoping to come back and visit Terry again for the World People Project. Sadly he passed away this year and so I thought I would share some of the images. The most iconic silhouette, the Margeaux, first made its appearance in the 1973 collection – a striking three-tiered wedge originally imagined in vivid multicolour snakeskin that perfectly captured the disco era.  His first store was called Cobblers to the World and his list of clients ranged from Bianca Jagger in the seventies to designing the Tomb Raider boots worn by Angelina Jolie.
