Kat Maconie is the eponymous label of British shoe designer Kat Maconie. The London-based brand is known for its striking statement shoes in dazzling colors with architectural heels and maximalist details. Inspired by the artistic, eclectic spirit of the city, the designer creates high heels, sandals, sneakers, boots and slippers for women.
Kat Maconie studied at the London College of Fashion and founded her eponymous brand in 2009. She sees her shoe design as an art form, winning the Drapers Shoe Designer of the Year Award twice. Maconie has collaborated with fashion designers like Ashley Williams and Teatum Jones, and her outrageous designs have attracted avid fans around the world, including stars such as Taylor Swift and Rita Ora. Ten years after the brand’s launch, the designer opened her first store in London.
In recent years, Kat Maconie has taken a more sustainable approach to gradually reduce the environmental impact of its shoe production. All of the label’s shoes and accessories are made in family-owned factories in China, which provide a fair, caring and safe environment for workers, according to the company’s website. When choosing materials, more and more attention is paid to durability and how long the shoes will last. “We ensure that waste is minimized during the manufacturing process by reusing materials and trim where possible,” the brand said.
Kat Maconie shoes and accessories are now available at over 320 retailers worldwide. In addition to its own two stores in London and San Juan, Puerto Rico, the collections are sold internationally in boutiques and major department stores including Harvey Nichols in London, KaDeWe in Berlin and IT Hong Kong. For the SS22 fashion season, the label launched a jewelry collection for the first time.
