A tale actually worth spreading? That of The Office of Angela Scott.
This week the designer launches an online boutique full of Italian-crafted shoes with personae as colorful as their painted uppers and soles.
Mrs. and Mr. Smith (her, a proper heel; him, a flat oxford) are a traditional-looking pair — until you read into their flaming pink stripes.
Prim Miss Wright lace-ups and Mrs. Seymour saddle shoes tell a saucier saga than their traditional counterparts, and Mr. Oliver equestrian boots are finished in quirky canvas. (Here’s hoping the red, white, and blue Americana edition becomes a permanent fixture.)
Whatever she’s selling, we’re buying.
Available online at theofficeofangelascott.com, $350-$825.
