I ventured a little out from my personal style and wore this vintage monochrome outfit, inspired by these beautiful leather print loafters from Nelissa Hilman, a KL based shoe designer. I have a soft spot for leopard prints and this pair, printed on soft pony hair is hand sewn for that extra bit of durability. This pair is from her La Dolce Vita collection - they come in a variety of colors and fabrics, all with the signature toe cap and tassels. I love that Nelissa Hilman doesn't compromise comfort for style. These loafers comes with an inner sole cushion and sheep leather lining, making it extra comfortable to be standing around in even for an entire day, plus its square rounded toe design makes it suitable even for slightly wider feet like mine!
Nelissa has collaborated with several Malaysian fashion designers for their show collections with really beautiful results. Really impressive for someone who didn't even study to be a shoe or accessories designer! Check out her collaborations with Jonathan Liang, one of my personal favourite designers, and Tsyahmi and cut your feet some slack - get a pair of her flats *winks*
