I am so pleased to unveil my first designs for the newly launched Keds Designer Collective. Using the freshest, newest patterns from Wooster & Prince’s best selling collections, I created a line of Keds that, to me, perfectly blends vintage surface design with this classic American icon.
We had such a great time interpreting which patterns from our studio would best give a wink towards the long history of Keds, the first of which were introduced in 1916. Our most nostalgic, old-world patterns just seemed to harmonize with these great sneaker styles. In fact, we had a tough time choosing between tapestries, chinoiseries, damasks … so many of them looked so darling.
I couldn’t wait to get my first samples. When they arrived to my door this week, I was so excited to try them on. Light as a feather, fresh as a daisy and totally comfy, these are the exact right springtime shoes to be wearing right now … for work, for gardening or for just kicking back on the hammock. You can see them all on my site within the Keds Designer Collective.
