eye4style Interview - Faryl Robin Morse

I've been a big fan of Farylrobin's quirky but feminine footwear for years now. So, I'm thrilled to bring eye4style readers a quick, fun interview with designer Faryl Robin Morse.  Read on for the scoop on footwear for fall!

Can you sum up the Farylrobin aesthetic in 3 words or less? 

Fresh. Inspired. Bold.

What are your fave fall trends in shoes? How about your favorite shoe in the Farylrobin fall collection? 

This season for Farylrobin it’s all about rock-n-roll. Our collection was inspired by the era when American rock-n-roll really took root - during the time of Jimi Hendricks, Janis Joplin, and Joey Ramone. This fall’s collection meshes rock-n-roll edge with femininity and the Lucky boot and Silvia pump are our stand out styles this season. The Lucky, with its brass body jewelry gives this rockin’ motorcycle boot a fresh edge and I’ll be wearing the Silvia pump in Zebra all season long. It’s timeless and transcends style - it has a 1950’s housewife meets punk rock meets hip-hop glam appeal.

What's the biggest mistake that women make with their footwear? How can they correct it? 

I can’t stand seeing women wearing shoes that are clearly uncomfortable. Every shoe we design and produce has to fit 3 specific criteria: 

1) high-quality design – We are not willing to accept what has always been and are constantly searching for the newest materials and innovations so that we can match our design aesthetic with a high quality product that women lust for

2) pricing - when you turn over our shoe at the store to look at the price, you aren’t insulted by what you see and are pleasantly surprised

3) comfort – our shoes are made from the finest Italian leathers and are fit tested over and over for precision sizing and comfort. I truly believe that if a woman is on a date and it’s not going well, she has to comfortable enough in her shoes to walk home!

Last but not least...what's your favorite boutique in NYC and why? 

How can I pick just one? There are so many! Coclico on Mott Street (275 Mott) is a great store. They are very selective with their buying so you are only going to find the season’s best picks there. Anne, who is the buyer for the store, really takes the time with each customer that walks through the door. The boutique has a very downtown vibe with feminine appeal - just like Farylrobin!
