INSTANT CLASSICS: PENELOPE CHILVERS


Penelope Chilvers is a British luxury brand, based in West London specialised in women’s footwear and accessories. These are all made from the finest leather in small, family run artisan factories in Spain and Italy.




Her range of handmade leather boots, stylish and classic, are particularly well know and suitable for every season. In my opinion they are a bit expensive, but I'll leave it to you to decide: after all they are handmade and will last forever!



Here are my current favourite pieces:




Embossed Sandals - Turquoise/Chalk


Embossed Sandals in goat skin leather. Leather sole and upper and suede lined. Beautiful soft, comfortable fit.






Feria Tote in Nappa - Bitter Chocolate
Feria Tote in Bitter Chocolate with collage detail. Capacious, all seasons bag in soft nappa leather. Fully lined in marbled cotton canvas with secure inside zip pocket and magnetic clasp. A true Penelope Chilvers classic.








These are some old pieces; not sure they make them any more.
