For several seasons, collaborations between fashion houses (or designers) and ready-to-wear brands have been coming thick and fast, bringing exceptional creations to the high street at a lower than usual price. Fall should once again bring its share of affordable luxury designs, including this new collaboration between Crocs and Christopher Kane.
The Scottish fashion designer caused a surprising sensation in September 2016 when he revealed a series of Clogs – the iconic Crocs shoes – at his spring/summer 2017 catwalk show. Often considered functional rather than aesthetically pleasing, the moulded plastic shoes were turned into a genuine fashion accessory.
A few months later, Christopher Kane and Crocs returned with a new collection -- another limited edition -- inspired by the the designer's pre-fall 2017 collection fashion show. For this latest collab, the Clogs get a tiger-print finish and come embellished with various decorative items (an ostrich feather, floral Jibbitz accessories and the letter "K").
Several colors are available: Honey Tiger Clogs in honey yellow, Avocado Tiger Clogs in avocado green, Ochre Tiger Clogs in a deep red shade and Black Tiger Clogs. The new collection is available in selected stores and online for a limited period only, priced from $112.71.
Or, consider these functional yet stylish shoes for Singapore's hot weather.
