Charlotte Stone hasn’t skipped a beat after graduating from FIDM LA. Two weeks post graduation she was on a plane to Italy to make samples in Tuscany and the rest is history. Stepping out on her own under her self-named label, she is a unique talent. You need not 5 minutes scrolling her Tumbr to instantly understand the Charlotte Stone POV on the world; Sun kissed and beautifully soled. She is the ultimate intersection of impeccable craftsmanship, minimalism and fun. I mean her website is titled, “I’d rather be surfing”. Now that’s the kind of girl I can get behind!
Canadian born; yet another reason to love her, she’s always known she wanted to design shoes. Pulling inspiration from a library of well used and ever growing reference binders filled with magazine clippings, editorials and vintage inspiration, she knows she’s onto something when she starts to see her color combos and shapes over and over again in the world around her. I know she’s onto something because when I go to her site I have what I like to call, purchase paralysis. Meaning I want everything and don’t quite know where to start! Currently going on is her summer sample sale. Act quickly and enjoy!
