Emily Lamb Shoes – The Next Step
Last Friday night saw the launch of a new and exciting collection from Emily Lamb, one of Scotland’s most promising young designers, and her glorious shoes. I can tell you with a sincere heart, it certainly does not disappoint. Emily Lamb makes the kind of shoes that women drool over – made from the most beautifully soft, supple kid suede, buttery nappa leather, glossy patents and delicate grosgrain ribbon, they ooze style and sophistication and have the priceless power of making you feel a million bucks. We all want a pair.
The Corinthian Collection was launched at the Corinthian Club in Glasgow and is housed there in the Boutique bar to be browsed alongside a cocktail – in my opinion, how all shopping should be enjoyed. Emily describes these splendid new heels as, “inspired by the building itself, taking inspiration from the building’s extraordinary architecture and the sumptuous, award-winning design of its spaces – from bars, clubs, restaurant, meetings rooms, gaming room and The Boutique Bar. It encapsulates the classic, timeless style for which The Corinthian Club is justly renowned.” There are ten styles in total, from five ranges -Casino, Brasserie, Bootleg, Boutique and Club. All are to die for, but hold a gun to her head and Emily’s favourite? Brasserie 1, my favourite? Bootleg 2. Someone get me a pair. Please.
Now, not only does Emily make fabulous footwear but she has character and integrity to boot. A long standing friend of Mabel, we have seen her go from strength to strength over recent years, starting new ventures with passion and vigor and seeing them triumph, playing her crucial role in seeing a blossoming fashion industry cemented in Scotland. Emily is a founding member of Design Collective Scotland – a collaboration of Scottish designers whose mission it is to build a stage for young designers here in their homeland so that creative talent can be nurtured and show-cased in our own cities and go on to thrive. The Design Collective Shop (at 86 Dumbarton Road) provides a platform and opportunity for young designers to sell their work, launch new collections and learn from one another. The shop also has a creative space in which designers are able to work as well as teach classes, an opportunity that I know many are immensely thankful for. Emily herself is going to be starting her own shoe design and making course imminently– what an amazing opportunity to learn from the best! Emily – you’re a legend.
