Talking Shoes

TALKING SHOES with Rachel Rachel Roy shoe designer Rachel Richards

How many pairs of shoes do you own and which pair is your favorite? I’ve never actually counted, but might be safe to say 70 pairs? My favorite? Hmmm… you do know that’s a next to impossible question to answer… but I did just get these white, Camilla Skovgaard wedges that I’m a bit obsessed about.

What inspires your designs? Anything and everything. I think “living” inspires me the most- walking around, observing things, traveling, seeing the way other people live. It’s all about the details.

 What city inspires you the most and why? I really enjoyed Istanbul when I went there…the sights, the sounds, the smells, the beauty of old traditional buildings mixed with run down shanty like areas and all the texture was amazing. On a more regular basis of getting inspired, I’d say Hong Kong and New York.

What are your favorite pieces from the RRR summer collection? I love the peep toe bootie “Quatie”- probably my most favorite. I also really like the studded sandal “Shera.”
