When Chloe’s good friend and fellow designer Morgan Curtis, of Morgan Lane, married Thomas Mahl this summer, there was no question that she would create a pair of shoes for the occasion.
Chloe traveled to Casares, Spain, for three days of wedding celebrations, and it was the second evening, the rehearsal dinner, for which she contributed to the bride’s look.
“The rehearsal dinner was a Spanish smart-casual theme at the Finca Cortesin Beach Club,” Morgan told Vogue. “We had Flamenco dancers and Spanish guitar and served a huge pot of paella.”
Morgan’s look that night had a “Hollywood glam with Spanish flair” theme, and Chloe created a bespoke pair of her signature Narcissus sandals in cream silk for the occasion. The heels were then painted with flowers and cherubs, as well as the wedding date and Morgan’s initials by illustrator Regina Yazdi.
The shoes were worn with a dress designed by Morgan and her mother, designer Jill Stuart. “It was cream silk with long ivory fringe that hung from the shoulders and at the end of the silk waist tie,” Morgan explained. “The fit was inspired by 1930s lingerie.”
The dress fell to just above the ankle, allowing for the custom sandals to become a focal point of the overall look.
Hair stylist Jessica Gillin from Serge Normant, styled Morgan’s hair, and her younger sister Sophie did her makeup. “My hair was made into a big perfect wave with a side part and I wore antique gold snake earrings,” Morgan said.
