Courtenay Sohatee, International Retail Manager Wholesale Franchise and Nadia Colville, Wholesale Account Manager, showed us the Summer Collection of Kurt Geiger
Kurt Geiger unveils new Spring-Summer 2017 campaign featuring British supermodel, Edie Campbell.
The campaign shot in London, stars Edie as the heroine of Kurt Geiger’s fashion fairy-tale. When designing the new collection Rebecca Farrar-Hockley was inspired to look to the new year as a fresh start and see the world through rose coloured glasses and the lens of ‘love, magic and enchantment.’
“Excess is unapologetic in the form of crystal embellishment, exaggerated bows, an abundance of pearls and vintage-inspired hand sewn appliques. A tiny glitter bag in the shape of a heart can be worn as jewellery, with platform wedges so high your head will be in the clouds!” Rebecca Farrar-Hockley
Spring brings nature, which Rebecca chose to celebrate through pretty oriental prints, hand-sewn floral embellished appliques, whilst humming birds, eagles and swallow motifs adorn chain shoulder bags, backless slippers, luxe summer sliders and Kurt Geiger’s iconic fashion sneakers.
Fabrics are decadent with rich silk satin, Italian grosgrain, suede and soft calf leather. A pretty colour palette of English rose, rich berry, khaki and midnight blue clash against hot pinks and bright fuchsia. Blending casual with formal, the realms of day and eveningwear are distorted to create statement shoes designed to be cherished, but worn everyday.
“I had a lot of fun dressing up for this shoot and loved the statement pieces chosen by Rebecca. The collection is all about an element of surprise and an escape from the everyday – which seems to perfectly embody the new mood for Spring.” Edie Campbell
