Preen was started in 1996 by real-life couple Thea Bragazzi and Justin Thornton. The influence for the label came from the design duo’s love of Victoriana, recycling, deconstruction and utilitarian clothing. Bragazzi and Thornton’s vision for a label started in a shop on Portobello Road and from that vision came a label that became a darling of the fashion world.
Fall 2015 marks the debut of Preen shoes and looking at these heels shows that the label still stays to their deconstructed recycled roots. My favorite shoes from the collection are pictured below:
