After 15 years spent honing his craft at Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Narciso Rodriguez and Alexander McQueen, Paul Andrew launched his eponymous shoe collection for Spring 2013. Set on filling a perceived niche in the market, British-born, U.S.-based Andrew sought to create footwear that was in keeping with his own design aesthetic: it would be streamlined, elegant and sexy. A proponent of the simplified, single-sole silhouette, Andrew fuses the latest technology with old-world handcraftsmanship, fashioning ankle-strap sandals, high-heels pumps and thong sandals in Italy from supple leathers, exotic pythons and luxe haircalf.
