David Newton, who shot this shoe for me is a master of the accessory and so when I was dreaming up the kind of shoe Racheal would have worn in Blade Runner (the 1980’s Neo-noir Science Fiction movie) he was naturally the man I turned to.

The shoe had to have enough character to be chosen by a human clone possessed of arch glamour in a futuristic world where style is everything.  I called it in from Hermes and was delighted with the shot for it’s simplicity and bare beauty.  David does understatement very well.
