Brian Atwood Talks Mandals and Melissa McCarthy

At his recent resort ’16 presentation, Brian Atwood remained coy about speculation that he might be advising friend Melissa McCarthy on her rumored footwear line. “Who knows? She asked me about some shoes, so we’ll see.”

But the globe-trotting designer was more than happy to share his top tips for the gents this mandal season. “A good pedicure is a must. Otherwise, it’s not cute. Use Twinkle Toes to help train your feet. And watch those toe hairs. Get them waxed or something — nobody wants to see that,” he deadpanned.


Next month, Atwood will jet off to vacation on Capri, and you can bet his feet will be in fine form for wearing a shoe collection that spans Saint Laurent to Tom Ford and more. La dolce vita, indeed.
