Starheels and the Supers

July 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

Yesterday my blog post was dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld’s capsule collection inspired by Olympics and today I decided to stay on the topic and discuss brand new Kurt Geiger capsule collection that takes its inspiration from comic books and superheroes. Based on socially accepted stereotypes, fashion and comic books should not go together – fashion is for those who don’t eat carbs, never take off their heels and are never seen without perfectly blow dried hair while comic books are for the geeky types that play computer games and never leave their rooms. Yet in the postmodernist world of 21st century those stereotypes should be a long forgotten thing, at least that is what my experiences have shown as 4 years ago I used my laptop mainly to play World of Warcraft and now my primary usage of the same device is fashion blog writing. Even if we disregard the communities surrounding comic books and fashion, both are clearly art forms and hence have common ground for mutual inspiration. (I would love to see a comic book inspired by fashion – with super stylish superheroes maybe? Let me know if there is one!)

Now that the inspiration has been legitimised, let’s talk about the collection. Colourful, studded and badass – those three word say it all. Most of the designs are  not for fainthearted: you need to be able to walk in heels and do it well as wedges have narrow base and pumps come with supersize platforms, at the end of the day its all about risking lives with those superheroes, right? But just in case there is an option of flats that are just as colourful and studded without the instability of the uplift. Below are my favourites but you can choose from the whole range of styles and for most from a few colour combinations at KurtGeiger.com and in stores.
