We Caught Up with Martell and Picked his Brain on all Things Shoe Related
1. What's the first thing you look for in a pair of shoes?
The first thing I look for in a pair of shoes is the style. I'm usually looking for something that stands out, something unique and interesting.
2. What's your favourite detail from the Base London XXI Collection?
My favourite detail would be the intricate brogue detailing on the Trench shoe. Its my favourite from the collection
3. How do you pair your socks with your shoes - where do you start?
When I get dressed I usually add my shoes and socks last and once my outfit is almost complete I make sure my shoes and socks do not match but correspond with the other accessories within the look.
4. Where do you start with outfit building?
I usually start with an outerwear piece or a shirt. I use this as a bass and then I work around the base to piece together the rest of the outfit.
5. What's the best piece of style advice you've ever been given?
Someone once told me to dress how I feel. and thats what I have been doing ever since. I think its a great that we can express ourselves through the way we dress.
6. What's the one accessory you can't leave the house without?
I’d have to say my trilby. Weather its classic, modern, wool felt, forfeit, or panama, I will not leave the house without it.
