BG Obsessed: Tabitha Simmons
Meet Tabitha Simmons Thursday, October 24
We’ve always had a bit of a girl crush on shoe designer / stylist extraordinaire Tabitha Simmons.
Not only does this fashion powerhouse design some of the most comfortable heels we’ve worn, her styles consistently combine her international lifestyle with a chic practicality. A busy, multi-tasking mother of two, Simmons designs with her own day in mind (styling for British Vogue, picking up her sons from school, designing shoes), envisioning a single pair of shoes worn throughout. And, while some verge on vertiginous, the majority of Simmons’ playful silhouettes are in fact styles that can be worn from morning until night.
Take, for instance, her update to the signature Bailey Buckle Sandal, a witchy point-toe banded spazzolato pump whose doubled ankle straps will keep you securely strapped in. This is a stiletto that easily shifts from conference room to cocktails. Looking for something more grounded? Try Simmons’ bi-color point-toe ballerina flat or triple-buckle boot. But it is in the recurring Bailey where Simmons leaves subtle hints of whimsy and playfulness — from leopard-prints or crystal-covered to a holographic green reminiscent of Batman’s Joker.
It’s obvious that Simmons is a great lover of shoes, and we certainly can’t wait to see how this love manifests in seasons to come.
Meet Tabitha Simmons this Thursday, October 24 from 2-4pm.
