"Everyone from Jarvis to Leonardo wears their shoes. But Northampton-based duo Jeffery-West believe in tradition rather than trends, old school club elegance with contemporary looks." - ARENA

The retrieval of a European craftsman tradition and a typically British atmosphere permeate the new collection designed by Jeffery~West; a collection where contemporary art becomes a source of suggestive inspiration. The English brand turns into experimentation and takes back to a theme so dear to Warhol: serial reproductions. This is why the original ankle-half-boots are characterised by sinuous and tapered lines as well as sequential prints of faces and icons (borrowed from pop art). Sober lines are also featued in the designs - fused with trendy connotations for the most traditional models, and developed with precious leathers; made even more precious by their decorative details and fretwork.
Jeffery-West are to be found in several important museum collections, those include: Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The National Boot and Shoe Museum, Northampton; The Museum of Costume, Bath, and The Royal Shakespeare Theatre Collection, Stratford-upon-Avon, as well as many other private collections across the globe. Jeffery-West footwear have also been featured in many films, to list a few: "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" (2002); "The Boat That Rocks" (2009); "Snatch" (2000); "Cuban Fury" (2014); "The Counselor" (2013); "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" (1998), Dom Hemingway" (2013); "The Equaliser" (2014), and the Bond film "Skyfall" (2012).
