To say Lenny Kravitz has his creative fingers in a lot of different pies is an understatement. And now he is adding shoe designer to the list. Lenny has been brought on by TOMS Shoes to design a new line for them!
“The thing a lot of people don’t know about Lenny isn’t just his amazing personal taste in fashion and style, but he also designs wallpaper and furniture, and he sees a bigger picture,” Mycoskie says.
His greatest contribution to the collection is adding prints, Mycoskie says, including one decorated “Let Love Rule,” from his song.
Kravitz says the basic Toms look — fabric shoes that aren’t frilly or overly structured — fits his wardrobe, even if “they remind me a little of the shoes my mom would wear in the ’70s.”
He stocks pairs for guests to wear in his homes, where he has a “no street shoe” rule. “No shoes in my house,” he explains. “I like to lay around the floors, and I have nice floor coverings and shags and sheepskins, and I don’t like bringing in things from the outside.”
Kravitz says he aims to create a general vibe, through his clothes, decorating and broader lifestyle choices, to be comfortable, creative, engaging and inviting. And he has no problem looking for the same from passers-by.
“I love people watching. I love observing what people do and how they express themselves,” he says. “It’s inspiring to see what people do and how they twist things to make themselves unique, even if it’s something you would never do.”
