Hide Your Face, Show Your Feet

>> There are few shoe designers that I post about where I'm using lookbook images.  Most of the time, it's flat pack shots that leave the imagination of onlookers to do the work and envision the rest of the ensemble to go with the shoes.  Kron by Kron Kron however do like to take it a step further with their candy pick n' mix shoes that have had me in a flurry ever since I saw them on sweet Saga's inspiring blog.  Now that I have a pair in my possession, I'm even more intrigued by what Kron by Kron Kron will do next given that my feet and my spirits stand to benefit from their shoe visions.  Saga has once again brought KronKron shoes to life with this extensive shoot of their new collection that was done in Iceland a while back.  Whilst my own imagination is perfectly capable of coming up with an outfit that befits KronKron's shoes, these images do provide stunning image fodder for the brain.  Everything from the setting, the attitude conveyed by the models and especially the styling does much to define what Kron by KronKron shoes are all about and gives me a lot of insight into how the shoe designers Hugr√∫n √Årnad√≥ttir and Magni √ûorsteinsson see their own shoes.  What with the shoes being quite often conceived as 'sweet' or 'cute', Saga and the designers' direction with these images pushes the shoes into a different context. 

On a more practical note, their e-store has been rejigged and I think is much-improved, allowing you to carefully make your Kron by KronKron selection.  Bewarned, their other wares of Tsumori Chisato, Peter Jensen, Marjan Pejoski, Tata Naka and Yazbukey etc etc may distract you, but let's be honest, it's CLEARLY all about the KronKron feet…

  1. Yummmy! 🙂 I dream of owning a pair.
    Also I’ve extended the deadline for the Acts of Random Kindness giveaway til Monday morning if you still want to enter. I’d love to hear what you do the more random the better! 🙂

  2. I’m so on the verge of purchase. These images have the actual styling I had in mind for: a black dress (or some girly black layers, sheers and stuff) for top, some colorful hosiery, and BANG, Kronkron shoes. Now I even have the exact pair in mind. I don’t even consider them expensive, they are so detailed.
    BTW, are they comfortable?

  3. Wow I love this post! My sister and I are from Iceland and I didn’t know too much about KronKron shoes. I have been enlightened! The collection is so beautiful. We are also very inspired by Saga’s blog and yours of course. <3

  4. They are beautiful. I see them through a shopping window every day when I walk in Laugavegur, Reykjavik…dreaming of one day having a pair!
    Thank you for your inspiring blog!
