Stubbs & Wootton Fetes the Big 2-0

-------

Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Charlotte Olympia's slippers for Stubbs & Wootton

While riding what appears to be a never-waning wave of popularity, Stubbs & Wootton has gained fans near and far—East, that is—becoming a mainstay at the BLITZ concept space at Hong Kong’s Lane Crawford. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, the footwear brand, which is best known for its velvet slippers, enlisted a diverse range of collaborators to create personal styles. Former Japanese soccer star Hidetoshi Nakata designed his own version, as did Kenneth Jay Lane, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, and Olympia Le-Tan, among others.

Describing Stubbs as “timeless, classic, and chic at your feet,” new mom Roitfeld turned to her astrological sign—Scorpio—for her bespoke slipper, incorporating a golden scorpion and precious stitched heart. “[Scorpios] are tricky and stubborn, but we are extremely loyal and honest, and when we love, we love,” she says, noting that she hopes the designs will speak to fellow Scorpio women. Le-Tan—already a fan, with a few pairs in her closet—customized her designs with her insignia. She plans to wear her Stubbs kicks “at home, in my pajamas; with a sexy black dress and fishnet tights at night; and with jeans during the day.” The wares, which will be available at Lane Crawford and online from 10 a.m. tomorrow Hong Kong time or 10 p.m. tonight EDT, are truly limited editions—only eight pairs of each style have been produced. The shoes ship worldwide, and proceeds will be donated to the Hong Kong Children’s Cancer Foundation.
