The Shoe Review

J o a n n e    S t o k e r

I'm absolutely loving Joanne Stokers 1964 Collection. Inspired by the 60’s she has hit the nail on the head with the designs in this collection. I love animal print on shoes and this has featured and influenced a few of the designs, so of course my favourite shoe in this collection is the herringbone print Brigitte pump.  Though she may be an under the radar new talent to watch out for in commercial respects, she has made some major steps (no pun intended) in the footwear industry since graduating from Cordwainers in 2009. From graduating she fell right into the hands of Jimmy Choo where she was mentored, to designing with Matthew Williamson and Dune.

Stokers 1964 collection is a homage to the 60’s - Think monochrome, geometric, Mary Quant, bold patterns and colours and you’ll get the theme of Stokers inspiration for this collection. Thinking about all those factors would probably get you into a spin and feeling like some of the stoners with daisy chains from that era but I think Stoker has intertwined the essence of the 60’s with a modern day twist perfectly in this collection. So keep your eyes peeled - Stoker will be one to look out for in the very near future.
