Habbot’s balanced winter collection

Published:  March 4, 2014

With Annie Abbott at the wheel, Habbot shoes are a perfect combination of grounded and whimsy, much like the equilibrium struck between its Australian design and its Italian manufacture. This balanced quality has been captured in its new art direction by Melbourne studio, Ortolan, who rebranded Habbot in 2011. Using still life imagery, the leather shoes are arranged on handmade props—teased with gravity and shadow play— and treated with that contrary counterbalance, as both precious items and robust creations.
