What is your favourite shoe of the season?

Farah, block heeled low booties with a slanted wrist line.

Is there anything you’d like to see more of in shoe design?

Less short trends, more personality and quality in product, leathers and design.


How important is colour when it comes to accessorising?

It’s all up to the wearer. ATP always has black in different leathers as vegetable dyed vacchetta, suede or printed snake as a core offer but seasonal colours are a must to brighten up the total look. The person buying shoes or bags might want to think in the same way. In general, we believe in low-key, sophisticated colours.

What’s your favourite decade for fashion and art?

The 1930’s has always been interesting from a women’s fashion perspective and for the art.

Who is the ATP Atelier Muse?

Sidonie Gabrielle, Colette and Charlotte Gainsbourg


Top tip for walking in heels?

Practice and start with lower ones before moving to 5-inch stilettos. With that said, you can make it easier for yourself by investing in quality shoes that are well balanced.

What style star has the most covetable collection of heels?

Unfortunately, we have never seen her collection of heels but based on her looks in general and her acting in particularly it might be Swedish actress Alicia Vikander.

Most iconic shoe moment?

Anything made by Mr Yves Saint Laurent.
