Paul Andrew designed footwear at Narciso Rodriguez, Alexander McQueen, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan before starting his own shoe line in 2012. In February 2019 he became creative director at Salvatore Ferragamo. Here, he lays out his thoughts on fashion, from logos to shoes and everything in between.
“Growing up my father was the Queen’s upholsterer at Windsor Castle so I grew up literally on the grounds of Windsor Castle, in amongst all that pomp and circumstance, all those incredible materials and fabrics, and an appreciation for craftsmanship and artisanship – never scrimping or cutting corners on making something.”
“I live in a white T-shirt and dark pants. Embarrassingly, that’s basically my uniform.”
“I find inspiration everywhere – modern art, architecture, furniture, travel, photography.”
