>> Admittedly the title of this post belongs in Woman magazine or the like. I frankly don't care though because the sun is finally shining, I'm taking my suitcase (I'll be the Only Girl on the Campsite with a Minicase - people will point and laugh) down to Port Eliot today for three days of FORESTS, RIVERS and WORDS. Oh, and a bit of fash-action courtesy of the British Fashion Council. Therefore it's FUN Friday and this is the height of intelligence you'll get from me.
Of course "Fab" isn't the only word to describe Nicholas Kirkwood's burgeoning group of flats. Ever since S/S 10, he's worked in a butterfly sandal and a brogue, both of which I own, that do more than just fill a practical gap for flats. They deserve just as much swooning as his heels not least because they one feature that distinguishes them from other flats - the sculptural back heel shaped like a hexagonal prism. Fash Ed at Large got excited about them two years ago.
Kirkwood has continued to go forth with his flat styles and in his new resort collection for 2012, the butterfly sandal takes on a number of skins - neon pink and yellow lace, oyster mock-croc, retro polka dots and colour clashing snakeskin. The brogue style in silver and oyster/nude and the tasselled loafer that is a newer style of flat comes in cream and coral pink. All of this was definitely enough to detract me momentarily from Kirkwood's haughtier offerings.
Well... only for a moment. The star of the collection has to be this neon pink and yellow lace and it comes elevated like this...
