3. Walk on the wild side Cited as the ‘rock ‘n’ roll cobbler of the 1970s’, Terry de Havilland played a key part in London’s swinging fashion scene. His client list read like an international Who’s Who of the time, with everyone from Marianne Faithfull, Bianca Jagger, Cher and Bette Midler to David Bowie and Led Zeppelin wearing the designer’s flamboyant shoes. Even Jackie O ordered a pair of de Havilland’s sexy thigh-high boots. Since those glory days in the 1960s and 1970s he’s had more ups and downs than the Grand Old Duke of York, but now, after a six-decade-long career, the legendary footwear designer and his iconic shoes are finally back on top. High profile stars like Angelina Jolie, Helena Bonham Carter, Sienna Miller and Kate Moss have all rediscovered his genius. The designer’s latest venture is an exclusive and inspired collaboration with Liberty. Combining mind-blowing prints from the famous Liberty archive and the designer’s funky signature style, de Havilland says: “it’s a whole new chapter for me – bring it on.” Teal Totem Marky Wedge Sandals, £650, www.liberty.co.uk
