British shoe designer Thomas Murphy is giving a new shine to an age-old metal: copper. Murphy, who launched his first collection last fall, uses the metal for the heels of his handmade shoes. Copper’s natural oxidation process weathers the shoes and gives them a chameleonlike quality, explains the designer.
“They change from virgin pink to oranges, reds, purples, blues and greens,” says Murphy, who has worked with designers Ann-Sofie Back and Robert Cary-Williams before going solo.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
