Exploring Sports as a Metaphor for Life, Kurt Geiger Introduces the SS13 Collection
LONDON, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
'Good Sport' - Men's Collection SS13
The Kurt Geiger collection is about relaxing the rules of formal and casual dressing. A man's choice of shoes are integral to his game plan and the art of interesting contrast detail currently defining men's style. Flexible materials and the indulgent pleasure of real comfort come together in a more bravely styled and more boldly coloured collection for Spring Summer 2013.
'Inspired by the eclectic shoe game of London's stylish man about town, we worked with new textures, colour and camouflage for an inescapably conspicuous collection' -Creative Director, Rebecca Farrar-Hockley
GOOD OLD SOLES
Originally developed in the '60s the new Kurt Geiger London collection revives a handmade crepe like material Gomtech for summer soles with considered comfort and lightweight flexibility. True to the label's heritage of London design and Italian craftsmanship, each style is handmade in Italy and designed with an urban wearability. Refashioning the derby, two-tone oxford and a statement camouflage print loafer leave remnants of a safari adventure whilst about the urban jungle.
NEW SKINS, SNEAKER BEAST
The increasing sneaker collection draws numerous parallels between what it takes to be successful both in life and on the sports field. Skill, the application of camouflage and check prints. Confidence (crocodile textured silver sneakers aren't for the cowardly) and determination to inject glam rock into the everyday shoe wardrobe with metallic blue, gloss black, gold and iridescent high tops.
Always a highlight for the Kurt Geiger London Summer collection, sandals win in both arenas from the traditional woven and natural vacchetta leathers to new surfer styles and high gloss patent neon leathers. Available from £65 to £220
Kurt Geiger London Made to Order at Selfridges
November 2012 sees the introduction of the first Kurt Geiger London Made to Order service especially for the new men's shoe department at Selfridges. Handcrafted in Italy, the collection offers 5 styles from 2 statement formal options to 3 flare studded classics, giving customers the opportunity to become part of the design process with the choice of calf leather uppers, sole and defining details. Available from £240
KG Kurt Geiger
KG Kurt Geiger continues to explore new ground with the introduction of studded spikes to further classic styles including the chelsea boot, derbies, loafers and metallic oxfords. Spring's styles also champion both new sharper spikes and high-vis neon studs.
BOAT TO BROGUE WEDGES
Stark contrasts and layered soles define the label's boat shoes and brogues. Flashes of nautical flare sport new boldly blocked primary colours on a layered sharks tooth sole for a functional go faster spring to the boat shoe wedge. Highly polished brogues are mounted on a layered cleat wedge for a triumphant contrast of tradition with contemporary edge.
Casual and unstructured like a super soft suede sock. The progression of the best selling styles 'Bleeker'and 'Florio', the new suede derby 'Bale' and moccasin 'Kendall' are a response to the search for the ultimate in relaxed summer footwear.
