A good shoe collaboration never harms anyone…

The next big collaboration that we all expected was just announced: Mary Katrantzou has come together with the iconic French shoe label Repetto, to create a hypnotic collection. The Queen of graphic design creates a limited edition collection of four models of shoes. The collection was inspired by the Cendrillon ballet pump, created especially for Brigitte Bardot in the film And God Created Woman and the Zizi brogues made famous by Serge Gainsbourg. Mary Katrantzou uses her trademark graphics in a blend of black, white and pastel colors to breathe a new sensuous life into Repetto’s classic creations. The capsule collection features variations on two prints – a paint splatter/abstract tree scenario and a close up on one of Paris’ famous bridges. Like all good things happening in France, the collection will be available exclusively at Colette.
