Each shoe is unique thanks to this, and thanks to the use of materials – vegetable tanned leather, cork, rubber, bamboo shank give the footwear the coveted natural aesthetic that would blend in perfectly with The Greenwich Hotel’s Vervoordt-designed penthouse suite, with its muted, close-to-nature tones. Even if you were to take these shoes off, there’s more wabi sabi to be found in Shibui, the Spa at The Greenwich, which boasts five treatment rooms and an Onsen, a traditional Japanese soaking bath. Shibui means ‘a subtle and unobtrusive approach’, and this peaceful retreat, made of 250-year-old-barn of Japanese dark barn timber, certainly does the trick.
