Our roving trend spotter Montana Valich put us onto a dynamic duo from Sydney making it big in LA, with their eye catching footwear label Mara & Mine. Tamara Ingham (Tamie) a stylist, and Jasmine Yarbrough, a model, have let their feet do the talking and launched themselves into the world of shoe design.
Taking inspiration from the well shod locals and holiday makers scooting around Italy’s Amalfi Coast, Tamie and Jasmine have created a line of fashion forward shoes that take you from day to night – within a blink of an eye.
Having scoured the world for design inspiration and luxurious, high quality materials, the entire range is made using fabrics and materials sourced from Italy and Spain. Mara & Mine have also developed their own leathers and handcrafted jewellery all in downtown LA where they oversee the local production.
We love Mara & Mine shoes for their feminine yet functional appeal, their oh so distinctive link (skeleton toes anyone?) and the best thing of all – they are flat, which suits busy working girls perfectly!
Our favourite is the Jadey which is embellished with two hand crafted silver buckles that sit on the side of the ankle, and with suede detail around the edge of the shoe – instant rock chic. $320
