2017 Best Designer, Shoes

Milicent Armstrong, Artemis Design Co.

Very few people look at a rug and see a great pair of shoes. Milicent Armstrong is one of them. Made from intricate, colorful kilims sourced from Turkish bazaars, her smoking slippers and loafers are casual enough for a weekend stroll and fancy enough for a groomsman.
