Pierre Hardy reads the signs
Pierre ‘Gladiator sandal’ Hardy likes his shoes nameless and with clear sculptural and geometric lines. Hardy responsible for the elasticated boots of last season understands the need for affordable chic for difficult times. He is now reaching a wider audience with his Design Editions footwear range for Gap. The new look for this season will be white and tan leather variants of Hardy’s Recession Shoe (£55 per pair). Hardy creates a shoe’s prototype in Paris and then sends it to Gap for approval, before its manufacture in Brazil.
