Paula Gerbase had a singular answer when asked what inspired her fall 2017 collection for John Lobb: water. She described it as an "unsung hero" that is central to everything the brand does. The label's founder hails from the British seaside town of Cornwall, while its workshops are located near a river in Northampton, England.
"It's so instrumental to the location of where all the shoemakers are, because they started to do the tanning near the river that runs through Northampton. Also, water is the one element that makes shoes really shine. When we start the finishing process, we intersperse water with wax," said Gerbase during the presentation of her fall 2017 range for the British footwear brand, which featured a video of falling water in the background and water-filled displays.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
