CHAPTER 2 is created by shoe designers and makers Fay & Tom Murphy. Fay is the designer and artistic visionary for the brand, and Tom is the shoe maker. Both have over 15 years experience in their field within the footwear industry which has seen them working for luxury brands such as Dries Van Noten, Paul Smith and crafting beautiful hand made shoes for bespoke clients, catwalk collections and teaching shoemaking around the world.
While the styles in the collection are produced by small family factories in Italy all Made to Order and special limited edition styles are hand crafted by Tom in the family's footwear workshop in East Sussex, UK.
CHAPTER 2 source beautiful Italian leathers and natural materials to make investment pieces which are crafted mainly by hand which means slight variations will occur but this is all part of the charm. Most styles are created in small runs or limited editions and can only be found here.
CHAPTER 2 began in the summer of 2013 after the birth of Fay & Tom's second son, the 2nd chapter of their family. The brand combines an expertise in footwear with a love of contemporary design to create the most beautiful shoes for children. The first women's collection is due to launch in mid-September.
