Custom Creation
One highly individualistic shoe surfaced on the runway at Veryta, a new Italian luxury fashion brand. Veryta’s creative director, Tanya Ling, explained that a “chick coming out of the egg” had inspired the unnamed pumps that she bought and then customized for her models. Veryta is part of the philanthropic Veryta Foundation, which was co-founded by Yves Saint Laurent Creative Director Stefano Pilati. The foundation will donate part of the profits from the line to poverty projects in India.

New Shoes
Lara Bohinc, the hip upscale London jeweler-turned-bag-and-belt-designer has added two footwear styles (retail prices begin at $600) to her accessories offering. The capsule collection will bow exclusively in Harvey Nichols in November.

Teaming Up
Savile Row-trained designer Jsen Wintle chose a suede wingtip and a classic driving moc from Harrys of London for his runway show. “He has the right tailored, smart, contemporary look for us,” said Harrys’ creative director, Kevin Martel. Next up for Harrys: its first retail franchise opening in December, a 253 sq-ft store in the 360 Mall in Kuwait City.
