“I wanted the shapes of the shoes to be modern as well as impactful on the foot; to achieve this, we played with the idea of mixing textures, polished calfskin, patent leather and hardware,” said Han Chong, Self-Portrait’s creative director. “We have continued the balance of masculine and feminine, while proposing a bolder and sensual attitude.”

“Collaborating with and supporting relevant designers like Self-Portrait remains an important tradition for Robert Clergerie,” added Roland Mouret, Robert Clergerie’s creative director.
