Kurt Geiger Spring/Summer 2014 preview


For Kurt Geiger, spring/summer 2014 is a celebration of its signature spike heel; toasted with luxury leather bags and fantastic flats.

Whichever trend you embrace next s/s Kurt Geiger has a shoe to match your style. Not to mention the bags, which are a particular leap forward from the classic clutch-with-shoulder-strap we’re used to from Kurt Geiger. Next season the brand is offering totes, bucket bags and smart organiser bags… which I read the other day as ‘career bags’… a great description for the bag-I’d-use-at-the-office-bag…

Here are the stand out pieces (imho) from the Kurt Geiger S/S’14 preview showimageRed patent spike heel Kurt Geiger S/S14 shoe

Next spring will be the first season sine becoming a Kurt Geiger fan that I think the flats will run home with the ‘most-coveted’ prize.

Shoes & Swatches

Hey All,

I’m having a busy worky weekend. Deadlines looming and being too skint to go out to play = plenty of pressure, and I love a bit of pressure!

So while I was busy writing about non-fashion related things, my subconscious decided that it would rather think of other things. Like shoes (and ships and sealing wax?) and frivolous stuff like pretty colours. My last style post was an excess of black, as is the way of Northern Europeans in wintertime. (A grandly sweeping statement, yes… well it’s probably true.)

I love dark colours, Navy blue is a favourite but I’m finding myself moving towards maroon and chocolate-brown. I never really wear brown, except maybe the odd pair of shoes or a bag now and again, but I love the idea of maroon wool, and dark-brown leather teamed with light beige silks.

Rummaging through the Pantone archives (can you rummage on-line?) I made a mini palette of colours I’ll be wearing for the next while at least: Deep plum-browns and maroons, rich creams, rose-greys and antique pinks.

I also quite like the idea of a pale tangerine, these suede Carvela (Brown Thomas) block heel sandals are along the right lines and are the exact shape I EDIT: want have. No new spindly spike heels for me this season. Give me good, solid, could-almost-run-for-the-bus-in-these, heels.

I’d already bought these shoes from New Look and luckily they fit right into this new palette.

Seeing as I can’t actually dash out and buy a whole new wardrobe, I have to compromise. Like rediscovering my Revlon Nail Enamel in ‘Vixen 570’.

Because neither my nails are as fabulous as these nor my nail-painting as precise, I have borrowed this photo from Glitz Bliss here.

Then it’s just a matter of adding in some delicious cream pieces… My trusty Céline trousers perhaps…
Anyway, that’s me done for today, I think this post took about 12 hours to do…

More Inspiration: Jeffrey Campbell Look Book Love

Hey All,

I’ve researched like a nerd this week. Chained to the internet, looking for inspiration, I came across the AW10 collection / look book from Jeffrey Campbell. As amazing as some of the shoes inevitably are, the campaign imagery itself is awesome too.

Grimey – check; Graffiti – check; Tattoos – check; Hot shoes – duh… check!

I would very much like the fur/fringe/knee-high boots on the photo on the left please.

In the event that I fail to get the previously perved-on boots, the black lace-up/platform/mid-calf boots on the left, will suffice thanks.
