When the fashion team here at ShortList were awarded a preview peek at Kurt Geiger’s autumn collection, we fell for the ‘Kook’ tasselled loafer, which we believe has all the Ivy League charm of Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate.
However, while we rated both the polished black leather and burgundy suede versions, we believed there was also room for a softer, more retro continental hue.
Our suggestion was taken on board and Geiger has created 90 pairs exclusively for ShortList readers. They come in a buttery soft, fudge-coloured suede and are available from four of its top stores (Covent Garden, Liberty, Harrods and Selfridges nationwide) and online only. Made in Italy, the ‘Kook’ features a leather lining — complete with Kurt Geiger and ShortList branding — and top-grade suede upper.
