I was wondering what our dear tough cookie, the modern day version of the heroines I shared with you in the past two days, would wear on their feet, so solidly planted on the ground… and stumbled on an accessories brand which is based in Barcelona: Mus & Roew. A band of young creatives have joined forces to create a collection of shoes and bags that are useful, elegant and resistant as well as colorful and fashionable.
Good looking, aren’t they? Just the type of comfortable shoe a modern day heroine needs to conduct her daily business, whiteout having to forsake her good looks!
Mus & Roew came up with their name whilst doing research into the history of Barcelona’s leather manufacturers, and discovered the story of a Scottish craftsman who settled here in the 19th century together with his two pet dogs, Mus and Roew. He was known to be of humble character and would generously share his knowledge, and so the trio were a welcome sight among the leather artisans in Ciutat Vella.
Today Mus & Roew shoes are a welcome sight on the feet of any discerning tough cookie (and of course also the sweeter, gentler cookies – I wouldn’t want to discriminate!) and their bags and rucksacks look great on any arm or back…
