Stepping into Paradise: The Ocean Club’s Exclusive Footwear Collection

The Bahamas has long been synonymous with the allure of blue seas, white sands, and an extravagant lifestyle. Now, a new collection blends the magnificence of this Caribbean paradise with the world of luxury fashion. The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, in collaboration with the tastemaker par excellence, Whitney Robinson, is unveiling an exclusive collection of bespoke shoes for Stubbs & Wootton.

The Visionary at the Helm

Whitney Robinson, an illustrious figure straddling the worlds of luxury lifestyle and hospitality, brings his unique touch to this project. The former editor of ELLE Décor lends his eye for detail and elegance to this capsule collection, creating a visual representation of a vacation in The Ocean Club. His designs, each one reflecting a particular aspect of the resort, range from daytime fresh linen to a chic evening velvet.

Musing Over Memories

Robinson’s collection celebrates The Ocean Club’s illustrious 60-year history with designs that echo both the rich past and vibrant present of the Bahamian resort. His sand-coloured linen slipper, accented with turquoise trim, mirrors the resort’s pristine Paradise Island shoreline—an idyllic keepsake of sun-soaked beach strolls.

An Evening With Bond

The second design weaves in the resort’s connection to cinematic history—specifically, the filming of the James Bond blockbuster, Casino Royale. An elegant, jet-black evening velvet slipper, embroidered with the terms ‘shaken’ and ‘stirred’, playfully winks at the iconic Bond character and the resort’s famed Martini Bar.

Savoring the Spirit of the Resort

Thomas Fortune, Creative Director for Stubbs & Wootton, notes the extensive sources of inspiration at The Ocean Club, from the charming 12th-century Augustinian cloisters and meticulously-tended Versailles gardens to the idyllic white sand and turquoise ocean. Fortune commends Robinson for beautifully encapsulating this essence in the collection.

The Vanguard of Footwear Fashion

Stubbs & Wootton, launched in 1993, have been instrumental in the resurgence of the iconic slipper. With their hand-crafted, luxury slippers becoming the darling of celebrities, royals, and high-profile designers, the family-owned brand has etched its mark on the world of luxury fashion. This collaboration with The Ocean Club is a first-of-its-kind for the brand, and marks an intriguing intersection of two luxury lifestyle powerhouses.

An Exciting Endeavor

General Manager John Conway shared his delight at the collaboration, expressing his excitement for the launch of the resort’s first-ever, resort-inspired designer shoe collection. He praises Robinson for capturing the unique elements that make The Ocean Club an unforgettable resort.

Retaining Its Allure

The Ocean Club continues to enchant visitors with its secluded charm, breathtaking ocean views, exquisite Versailles-inspired gardens, and beachside restaurant, DUNE by Jean-Georges. As the sun sets, the colonial-style main house fills with jazz music and the clinking of Vesper Martinis—a scene of refined elegance that lingers long after guests leave.

The limited-edition capsule collection will retail for USD 650 per pair, available for purchase on Stubbs & Wootton’s website, as well as in-person at The Ocean Club.
