Pre-fall and Fall 2018 Inspiration: Okura

A recent trip to Japan inspired my Pre-fall and Fall 2018 Okura Collection with design elements that echo the country’s unique midcentury architecture, contemporary art and traditional crafts.

Clean-lined and minimalist, the Collection's shoes, sandals and booties are embellished with leather origami folds, Zen garden "stones," pleated fans, quilted obi belts and more.

Steamlined, geometric and modern, styles are feminine, forward-looking—and totally functional.
