Nicholas Kirkwood Display Ring Pops

Although not as risky as I’d like to go with such a great theme, I really enjoyed this window and store display done for Nicholas Kirkwood SS12′ by Robert Storey.  He used such simple, basic geometry, and yet I feel as though he made the shapes side-by-side look so complex, neat and well thought-out.  I also love the mismatching of colors between the stands, the plateaus and frames, beside the mismatching of colors of the heel and sole of the shoe, and those on the body of the shoe.  Hat tip to CreativeBloq blog for an awesome post.

Another thing I liked about this piece, other than the fact that its super fun and current, is that it kinda has something 80’s-revival about it, without being so obvious.  The whole pedestal thing for the shoes obviously has to be there in order to adequately display the product (fabulous shoes), but for anyone who has ever studied art, that pedestal implies pedestals used in traditional Greek and Roman art. For me, seeing those platforms done with that funky colored lucite is just such an unexpected 80’s throwback reference, that I’m not sure is actually intended…  But I love it.

Also, this display is totally reminiscent of Ring-Pops.

These Aint No Dancin Shoes

Ever get in a blog rut?  I definitely got into a big one with this post! I wanted to show you guys some amazing larger-than-life shoes, and somehow….. BLOG PHOTOSHOP RUT. Anyway, these definitely aint no dancin shoes – these shoes are made for walkin.  To and from fashion week.

I obviously love over-the-top shoe design. Shoes are such an awesome combination of art, industrial design, fashion and architecture, and I always love looking for each one of those components in a high-fashion shoe.  These are some designs from one of my favorite shoe brand, United Nude.

I hope these give you some eye nourishment.
