THELMA aims to create uncomplicated essentials that fit the lifestyle of a woman who is quietly aware of who she is and what she likes.
She is a perfect mix of contradictory virtues: both serious and light, masculine and feminine. Sometimes she drinks green juice, sometimes she eats spaghetti bolognese.
She is decisive, a bit quirky, and at times, a tad rebellious.
She has a deep, unfailing sense of what works and she doesn't waste time trying things she knows will not.
She is very much herself.
Through a building blocks approach to womenswear, THELMA puts thoughtful twists on archetypal garments customarily found in menswear. Each piece is created with longevity and versatility in mind. Never over-designed or too-precious, THELMA makes items intended to be worn again and again, season after season.
It Starts at the Bottom...
Introducing the Thelma Penny Loafer, a.k.a. the Moneymaker. What loafer-wearing women share is not so much a 'look' as an attitude, a nonchalance, a subtleness. The woman in loafers is ready for anything, from catching the subway to late-night dancing and everything in between. She doesn't create the illusion of confidence, she simply is.
THELMA loafers are 100% Made in Italy and they are created with genuine leathers and handmade sewings on the coast of Italy, known for shoe craftsmanship and know-how.
THELMA was founded in 2016 by Amanda Greeley. Amanda currently lives and works in Charleston, SC.
