This week I went to the Nash and Brandon Rooms at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London for the Kurt Geiger press day to view the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. I literally cannot emphasise how amazing the collection is, and how much I cannot wait for it to hit the stores. Their best collection to date. Imagine a room with two hanging pieces, one hanging shoes that fall just above your head and the other hanging shoes a foot off the floor. Very artistic with the perfect gallery backdrop.
Three mirrors with quotes from Yves Saint Laurent, surrounded the room conveying his notable birds of paradise influence on the new collection.
'But at night I want women to be birds of paradise'- Yves Saint Laurent, Elle, 1977.
'I like dull colors by day, because I fine the light of Paris is ill-suited to bright colors' - Yves Saint Laurent, Elle, 1977
Think bold, tropical and bright colours - greens, yellows, pinks and blues, feather and flower embellishment. For this post there is not a lot I can say as the shoes say it all (see below) ...
