Fancying Footwear?

February 3, 2009
Look no further than these three stellar collections, unspeakably different from one other and all the better for it. Also, I really must confess to ye Irish readers that I can’t actually use the recent heft of snowfall as an excuse for lusting after new shoes since those I already own seem to insulate sufficiently. However, life’s simply too short for excuses.
And so. On to the shoes. Common Projects is a footwear label I’ve not heard much about. Luckily, intrigue and mystery are two of my favourite phenomena! Oki-ni has kindly informed me, however, that these highly desirable kicks (stunning in their simplicity) are the fruits of industrial designer Prathan Poopat’s and graphic designer Flavio Girolami’s labour. What’s more, each shoe is branded on the heel with a gold propriety size and serial number.

Secondly, there’s Rachel Comey‘s collection for AW09, which features luxuriously soft (no I don’t know for sure but, hell, they look it) suedes and leathers in a tasteful-kind-of-shiny blue as well as deeper tones like chocolate brown and ash grey.

To conclude. I previously proclaimed the wonders of edgy London crowd Red by Wolves and shan’t reiterate my gushing praise since all of the beautifully captured clobber is to be witnessed on their site.
