Marie believes that modern women should not have to compromise. Shoes should not be a matter of comfort or style.
Marie Laffont is a French designer and Parisian native whose hometown, with its teeming cultural diversity and unique dichotomy of old world glamour and modern cool, informs both her artistic vision and approach to life. With a background in haute couture and fine art, Marie Laffont’s education is one rooted in creativity. After studying at university under the renowned Pierre Hardy, she went on to work for fashion powerhouses Christian Louboutin and Sonia Rykiel. It was whilst working as a designer that she further delved into visual art and began producing pieces of her own; working across various mediums including sculpture, photography and painting, her work often evinced her interest in both worlds. Shoes, most notably, became a recurring theme, as for Marie, they lend themselves to her artistic and personal philosophy of presence and engagement. Shoes, like art, can transport the viewer or wearer, both physically and figuratively.
