The composer, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer and actor has turned his hand to design in real life too, and collaborating on a line of shoes for Toms.
The star got involved in designing the shoes with Toms founder Blake Mycoskie at the urging of his daughter, Zoe Kravita. She was wearing the brand’s signature slip-ons all the time.
She also explained the brand’s larger mission of donating a pair of shoes to someone in need for every pair sold. Once Kravitz and Mycoskie met they hit it off.
‘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, he revealed, including one decorated Let Love Rule, from his song.
‘If I’m in, I’m in it all the way,’ says Kravitz, adding that the basic Toms look – fabric shoes that aren’t overly structured – fits his wardrobe, even if ‘they remind me a little of the shoes my mom would wear in the ’70s.’
Lenny tells how he stocks pairs for guests to wear in his homes, where he has a ‘no street shoe’ rule.
