My new shoe fetish – Camilla Skovgaard

I am experiencing a scary fascination towards the fierce almost alien-like heels of Camilla Skovgaard, the Danish designer everyone talks about. She’s been awarded the Accesory Designer of the Year Award at the Danish Fashion Awards this year and for all the right reasons.

 There is something incredibly organic about these shoes, they look as if they are about to walk by themselves. Her signature sole reminds me of tanks and weaponery, I can’t help thinking of Ellen Ripley from the Alien films.  Sigourney Weaver could definitely rock these heels!

They are the kind of shoes that demand respect or else and yet incredibly feminine. Amazing creativity and craftmanship!

Exciting new jewelery designer: Zelia Horsely

Irecently came across Zelia Horsley’s jewelery while browsing a brochure from London Jewellery Week. As expected, not many designs stood out for me – I am quite difficult to please when it comes to jewellery, I have a tendency to dismiss pieces that do not break some kind of rules and yet obey the rule of estethics – but when I saw Zelia’s chain collar, I knew I’d stepped over a gold mine.

I decided to find out more about this exciting designer.

And what I found was to take my breath away. In all her unique pieces, Zelia manages to create a happy marriage between industrial and finesse, between bondage and femininity, between the ego and the alter ego. There is a dominatrix and a Lolita in each and every piece and every single one of them has a story to tell. I have a feeling Zelia has found a way to talking to the woman of today, the woman who increasingly needs to be all in one.
