Sock’n'roll

Socks with sandals are my new fashion obsession. We’ve all been told pastels, metalics, pointed shoes and heat to toe prints are taking the limelight this spring, but I think it’s the socks’ turn to become every fashion savvy girl’s best friend.

Overlooked for seasons and practiced only by the true fashionistas (think Eleonora Carisi and Chloe Sevigny). socks sported with sandals are gaining increased public acceptance, despite their former reputation of fashion faux-pas. Catwalk stars as well as street chic garments, the socks and sandals trend is taking the world by storm. Either worn in a monochrome ensemble (as seen on Burberry show) or in a contrasting colour combination, they are practical as well as chic.

Try it yourself, go bold, go patterned, go neon, go sequined, go preppy and go lacy -  I say sock’n'roll ladies!

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!
