Penelope Chilvers, you have my attention. I had no idea who the British footwear designer was until I caught sight of these palm tree embroidered loafers in my Instagram feed. I’ve never been that into loafers, but with soft velvet and gold thread these babies are slipper like and almost regal. The loafers aren’t for dudes, but they’re the kind of shoes I could see Richard Brandson wearing on board his private jet heading to Necker Island – his private island paradise in the British Virgin Islands.
Slip into island life in a bunch of different colours including camel, green, black and navy, or a bespoke purple pair I spied on Instagram. It’s only September, but I’m adding the black pair to my Christmas list early and you should do the same.
