Whether you’re single, in a couple, or celebrating with friends, here are five ways we will celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Big screen escapism
Another world awaits when you book seats at your local independent cinema. Sit in on an art deco thriller for a spine-chilling evening or immerse yourself in the ethereal beauty of a live-screened ballet, staged at a national institution like the Royal Opera House.
What to wear: the Esme mule, our exclusive Valentine heels in fuchsia and red Satin; its sculpted curves and hallmark double straps meet at the point of a cut-out heart making it our most daringly romantic design to date.
A night amongst visionaries
If love is Art, see it up close: on a plinth, on canvas, or as an installation. Go after dark and you’ll find that certain galleries offer glasses of champagne whilst you browse. You may even have the chance to buy original artworks from upcoming talent – a unique memento of your Valentine’s Day visit.
What to wear: our exclusive Esme flat - an elegant slip-on with an exuberant red trim and cut-out heart at its centre. Its leather lining provides enduring comfort for time spent on your feet, making it a luxury Valentine's gift to yourself.
As a designer Valentine's gift for him, opt for the Luca. Beautifully simplistic, it’s a contemporary take on the classic black penny loafer and features our signature strap detailing. Made as a comfort-loving slip-on, it’s ideal for nights absorbed by design.
An epicurean masterclass
When food unifies both love and friendship, reserve space at a culinary masterclass. You’ll discover a multitude of courses online; ranging from lessons in haute cuisine hosted by your favourite celebrity chef, to private gourmet classes led by specialists who’ll come to teach in your own home.
What to wear: the Romy - our archetypal slip-on for relaxed rendezvous. It’s a sharply pointed loafer that boasts visual beguile. What’s more, its lightweight construction and soft leather-lining will provide you with plenty of comfort whilst prepping your Valentine’s feast.
Of course, if you prefer to cook in heels, our iconic Maureen pink stiletto in quilted fuchsia Satin wins. Defined by its sculpted curves and structural precision, we love it for its unashamedly bold style and silky-to-touch tactility.
Bespoke pottery making
Pinch, coil, and slab your way through Valentine’s Day at a pottery throwing class. Try your hand at the pottery wheel, learn how to prepare and shape your clay, and leave with a bespoke creation.
What to wear: The Iona. New for 2022, its organic heel and tonal duality in neon pink PVC and Patent is a celebration of the joy of colour.
An evening walk
You-and-me moments can be found in the simplest of activities. A walk in the park perhaps, or a guided tour that follows in the footsteps of legendary figures from musical, social and literary history.
What to wear: The Deon - a sneaker inspired by classic ‘60s silhouettes. Tailored to contour and shape the ankle, it’s designed to give day-long comfort thanks to its cushioned leather lining and durable rubber sole. Available in men and women’s styles including puff pink, red against white, and lead against white, discover a collection of enduring Valentine’s Day gifts for her, for him and for yourself.
