The talented painter and designer Penelope Chilvers brought the Spanish riding boot to England. Her first comprehensive collection was to launch at Paris Fashion Week in 2002. The collection has since grown to include iconic styles. Penelope Chilvers offers a collection of boots that are the epitome of luxury. Inspired by traditional Spanish riding boots, Penelope set out to design the perfect equestrian boot.
Penelope was the designer who finally got Kate out of her famous LK Bennett heels and into a pair of tasseled Spanish riding boots. The Penelope Chilvers Long Tassel Boots remain a firm favorite in the collection today. They have also famously been worn by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, who continues to wear her boots.
According to top shoe designer Penelope Chilvers, whose fans include the Duchess of Cambridge, Cate Blanchett, Elle Macpherson, and Claudia Schiffer: flat shoes can look far better. Combining contemporary, fashion-led design with enduring style and traditional craftsmanship, Penelope Chilvers produces timeless, made-to-last pieces that work seamlessly with each season’s trends.
