I’ve loved picking up fashion from the continent since I was a kid (I had a fine collection of fluorescent bracelets from French markets when I was 11 that was the envy of all my school friends) so I was thrilled to stumble across French brand Anne Thomas recently. What I love about buying abroad is that you’re so unlikely to ever see anyone else wearing the same thing when you get home, and Anne Thomas isn’t currently stocked in the UK (though it will be stocked in KJ’s Laundry in Marylebone in the summer – #winning).

There are no heels in this collection at all, just lovely flats. All are slightly unusual but in a totally wearable way. My boots are a wallabee-style in soft, sturdy leather with a bouncy rubber sole. As far as comfort goes, these are an absolute dream. Anne herself was originally known as a ceramics designer before she branched out into jewellery and accessories, and I think this shows in her attention to detail like the asymmetric zip on the Boston boots below.

Although they’re quite hard to get hold of at the moment, you can buy online at placedestendances.com who ship to the UK, or if you happen to be in Paris pop into Galeries Lafayatte who also stock the brand (for a full list of stockists, click here). It’s well worth the effort I reckon – these are the sorts of shoes people will stop you in the street and ask you about!
