I had a little wander around Covent Garden yesterday; I have a penchant for gawking at the street performers, especially the guy that dresses up as a dog in a kennel (I’m that simple). But I did have a quick dash into the Kurt Geiger store and was, quite honestly, amazed.
If you have ever been to this branch, you will know how it deceives you in to believing it’s about triple its actual size (the place is COVERED in mirrors) and its grand centre piece is a chandelier made from shoes (shoe chandelier, if you will). It all adds to the fun of browsing through Kurt Geiger’s AW11 range of fierce boots and animal print horse hair slip ons (trust me, dalmatian will be everywhere net season, thank you Topshop Unique). Obviously, I racked up about a couple of grands worth of new swag mentally. Feel free to judge my choices:
Now, it is no secret that Mr. G is expanding into the accessories market, and with the launch of the first AW11 campaign entitled ‘Everything but the dress’ being set to hit stores nationwide on the 6th Sept (2 days before our #fashiontweetup! – read all about it here) it’s a no-brainer that Vogue are heavily supporting the venture. And having kicked off their advertising juggernaut with a spread featuring the disgustingly gorgeous Anja Rubik, it looks like this winter Santa’s going to be shopping a hell of a lot more at KG.
