About the Collection

“During Fashion Week, I had a shoe that looked like it was about to break but I still wore it even though I had back-to-back shows. Of course, it broke, so I had to hop from show to show on one shoe and a half!” Fortunately, IMG model Hanne Gaby took this problem into her own hands, teaming up with IMG NYC shoe designer Matt Bernson on a very limited edition 8 piece capsule collection of avant garde yet very wearable shoes. The attention to comfort and technical details speaks to Hanne’s hectic life on the run as one of the most in-demand models of our time. She has a grueling travel schedule and literally runs from one top designer runway show to another and then jets off to photoshoots for fashion’s top brands. Well-aligned with an off-duty model’s needs, the Matt Bernson core philosophy is style and comfort. The two shepherded the process, bringing years of experience and feel for what the customer will not only want, but what they will line up for. Available exclusively on mattbernson.com and in the designer’s Tribeca boutique at 20 Harrison Street starting on April 8th, 2015.
