THE L'AGENCE SHOE COLLECTION
The journey of a shoe from
a concept to its complete
form. The L’AGENCE Shoe
collection started as a sketch
on the desk of creative director,
Jeff Rudes, in his L.A. studio,
before taking flight
to Italy to take shape with the
industry’s most adept craftsmen.
After an arduous design process,
including selection of the perfect materials and hardware,
the premiere L’AGENCE
Shoe collection was actualized.
“Creating the footwear collection was a natural addition for L’AGENCE.”
- Jeff Rudes
The process, more than a year
in the making, with countless
samples, color and fabric
swatches, hardware alternatives,
and fit sessions, has come to
life in the form you see today.
The perfect shoe to pair with
the perfect fitting jean.
“The L’AGENCE woman is the embodiment of Los Angeles. She’s effortless,
nonchalant, and very much epitomizes California cool, but with the
distinct confidence and joie de vivre that Parisiennes are famous for.
This shoe collection is a direct reflection of her.” - Jeff Rudes
The initial collection consists of three silhouettes: Éloise is a classic pointed-toe
pump, Lolita is an effortless mule, and Amélie, a formal slipper. A fourth
style, Madeline, a pump-style Mary Jane, is slated to debut with the
Holiday 2020 ready-to-wear collection.
