Kurt Geiger: Holiday’s Main Events Unwrapped


Kurt Geiger’s Rebecca Farrar-Hockley is London’s self-professed shoe queen, amassing a towering collection numbering in the triple digits. No one understands the necessity and desire for a finely crafted pair, or rather pairs, of shoes quite like Rebecca, which is why The Thread enlisted her help in finding the perfect shoes for surviving the holiday season and all its merrymaking events.

The Shoe: Kurt Geiger London ‘Cordelia’ Pump

The Event: “‘Cordelia’ is the perfect walk-wear stiletto for a day exploring London’s Covent Garden with my niece. Micro heels are the new flats and a good way to feel dressed up and still be able to walk and dance comfortably! Nude is the color of choice for a royal occasion, as we will end our day with a ballet at the Royal Opera House. The black gives this style the Kurt Geiger London edge.”

The Shoe: Kurt Geiger London ‘Belgravia’ Sandal in gold croc, a limited-edition style designed for the Golden Anniversary

The Event: “I always enjoy our annual Kurt Geiger parties in our design studio on Britton Street, and this year is rather special as we are celebrating 50 years since Kurt Geiger first opened in Britain’s fashion capital in 1963. Gold heels are a witty exclamation point to your outfit for a special occasion.”

Rebecca takes the ‘Britton’ pump for a stroll on Westminster Bridge.

The Shoe: Kurt Geiger London ‘Britton’ Pump

The Event: “Our signature stiletto ‘Britton’ is a tradition for New Year’s Eve, just like tuning in to Big Ben when the clock strikes 12. I am so obsessed with this shoe, I created a whole collection called the ‘B’ Series so that women could enjoy this style every day—from mini stilettos to boots, all with the signature metal pin heel. My favorite: scarlet!”

The Shoe: Kurt Geiger London ‘Ash’ Over-the-Knee Boot

The Event: “Kurt Geiger London ‘Ash’ over-the-knee boots are my winter warmers for the Winter Wonderland festival in Hyde Park.”

The Shoe: Kurt Geiger London Slip-On Sneaker

The Event: “We’ve designed gorgeous color-block styles that add a pop for fall’s festivities. I’ll be wearing comfortable trainers for casual days and Sunday roasts. These add a cool urban edge whilst out and about in the English countryside, as a long walk inevitably follows my family’s Sunday lunches!”

Let Kurt Geiger London help you arrive in style this holiday season!
