PESSO: Handcrafted Footwear & Bags

CATHI TREVOR

I’m not a huge lover of cold weather as I prefer sunshiny days with time spent swimming in the sea, however, there’s one huge yay factor when it comes to winter, layering up with coats, scarves and boots! I’m currently obsessing over my latest PESSO boots; here’s why I love this local brand now available online:

CATHI TREVOR PESSO BOOTS

“A lot of what we design is based on successes from the previous season. As we are a brand focused on “slow, honest fashion” our range tries to always stay true to this ethos. So we will take what we see trending and “Pessonize” it – make it more relevant to the everyday women without losing the integrity and values of the brand” – Lou Holding, PESSO owner and buyer

My current two faves are these brown ankle boots with zip side detail and my latest black ankle boots

I’m on my feet for most of the day, dressing and styling models, so footwear is important to me, for comfort and of course to look good too. Shoes really make a huge difference in one’s ‘tired factor’ and for that reason I keep a pair of sneakers in the studio incase I’ve opted on wearing heels, which aren’t the most practical to run around in, (but who doesn’t love a pair of heels to make one feel fabulous?) I’ve been really spoilt being sent some lovelies from PESSO and experiencing no blisters or chafing, just a pleasure of wearing super comfortable fabulous shoes!

PESSO leather boots, shoes and bags are now available online shop here and in Step Ahead and Shoe Connection countrywide. I was sent a voucher to shop online where the entire shopping experience was effortless, (the hardest part was deciding which pair of boots to choose!) which arrived within two days!

Ankle boots are huge this season and can be worn with just about everything including dresses, skirts, jeans, jumpsuits and pants; pop on a pair of stockings (fishnet on trend) or socks (colourful or glittery) to finish off your look.

“When we heard about the Fashion Revolution, we knew instantly that its was a movement we wanted to be involved in. It aligns perfectly with our philosophy about quality, production and the manufacturing process PESSO.”

The Fashion Revolution is about transparency in the fashion industry implying openness, communication and accountability across the supply chain. Ensuring that no-one and nothing is exploited in the process of creating quality products. Consumers have become much more aware of sustainability and have a conscience about what they buy asking #whomademyclothes and #whomademyshoes
