A Walk-In Shoe Wardrobe and A ‘Magical Faraway Tree’…
Yesterday afternoon fashion media attended the Number One Shoes Spring Preview event. Not just any preview – we walked straight into a gigantic ‘walk-in shoe wardrobe’ setup (imagine Barbie’s shoe wardrobe in adult size). This is every girls dream right? Especially this girl – I own over 250 pairs of shoes and I tell you what, I could have done with this set-up for my collection!
With a strong monochrome theme and a focus on sports couture, we were greeted by a sea of striking black and white, stripes and zigzags, along with snedges-a-plenty (wedged sneakers definitely need their own name, and that name is snedges). Also featured – Urban Ethnic Fusion (a mash-up of prints), High Contrast (monochrome featuring pops of citrus colour), Road Trip (flat and heeled ankle boots) and Colour Me Crazy (a collection of soft saccharine shades of candy colours).
Once again the fabulous girls of Starseed PR created a ‘Number One Shoes Wonderland’, complete with ‘Magical Faraway Tree’. For those of you too young to know what this is – The Faraway Tree was a series of children’s stories by Enid Blyton. The stories take place in an enchanted forest in which a gigantic magical tree grows – the eponymous “Faraway Tree”. Media were invited to select their favourite pair of shoes from the Spring collection, write the name of the pair of shoes they wished to receive on a tag (I wished for snedges), then tie their tag onto the magical faraway tree! (well it was a magnolia tree situated in the middle of a ‘high tea’ setting, but it looked pretty darn magical). Cool right?
Here’s a few snaps from the day…
A majority of these shoes have hit stores already, however some will be arriving in-store from September.
Yes, I’m a shoe-aholic. No, I don’t need help!
