I was recently introduced to a shoe brand called S.O.S Mark by coveted shoe designer Samantha Oriegien Swaby. The shoe brand holds true to the artisan tradition of manufacturing as the way forward for future generations.
Famous fashion designer Johnny Blue Eyes has also collaborated with S.O.S Mark, creating the ‘Golden Shoe’ which was snapped up by Beth Ditto of “The Gossip” and Lady Gaga, who, understandably, frequently wears the rest of the House of Blue collection as well.
S.O.S Mark shoes are hand crafted in Italy and made bespoke in the same manufacturing facilities that also produce Manolo Blahniks and Louboutians. They are available in Dubai at the Samsaara boutique at Souk Al Bahar.
