Australian Shoe Designer in Iceland

Ex-pat Aussie shoe designer Sruli Recht launches new line for 2008

Australian Shoe Designer in Iceland


November 16th, 2007

Sruli Recht has launched his first collection of Sruli Recht Shoes for 2008.

The full collection will be presented at Bread & Butter 16- 18 of January with the KDU
Fira de Barcelona in Barcelona, then in Paris, Berlin and Tokyo.

From marketing a pair of his shoes ‘for throat-cutting thieves’ to moving to Iceland, the actions of ex-Melbourne fashion designer, Sruli Recht are what make the man.

Reykjavík, Iceland is an unusual place to find ex-Melbourne designer, Sruli Recht. But after leaving the London studio of Alexander McQueen, he was keen to track down composer Ben Frost.

“This man’s sound is like the sonic resonance of my design. I found the environment such an amazing change from London, the warmth of the people, the great water, breathable air and a physical landscape that caught me by surprise.

I felt grounded, here, for the first time in my life.” says Sruli, who has been on a steady incline since graduating in fashion from RMIT University in 2002.
