From sturdy flats to fanciful treats, my spirits have been somewhat exalted because a) I'm currently in New Forest retreating into massage and pony-land at Limewood Hotel and b) I've just clapped my eyes onto Saga Sigurdardottir's images for one of my shoe-faves Kron Kron's S/S 10 collection. The combination of my surroundings and seeing shoes nestled amongst twigs, flora and fauna almost makes me want to leap into the woods with my own paltry footwear and start taking semi-creative shots. Except I'm neither as talented as Saga nor am I as sultry as any of the models in these shots. Most importantly, nor am I in possession of any of these Kron Kron treats that are also enticingly on sale online. In fact, there are plenty of components missing that renders my impulses ever so ridiculous.
Aptly vivid make-up that also has that fuzzy 60s-70s quality (where eyelashes are heavy and lips are stained..), bed hair that curls or balloons in volume, perfectly matched styling with plenty of lingerie nuances that never overshadows the shoes, freshly cut blooms and natural ivy as well as a swan or two. Then there are the shoes… Kron Kron have such a defined aesthetic that their colour combinations are now recongisable a mile away to me (and perhaps to you too?). Their mixing and matching of colours of course varies from season to season maintaining that element of surprise. The shapes are also tweaked just a little so that details such as slingback wedge shape, a triple bow detailing and perforated suede all of a sudden look like dramatic changes in the scheme of Kron Kron's shoe quest. I say quest but I'm guessing that designers Hugr√∫n √Årnad√≥ttir and Magni √ûorsteinsson are pretty satisfied with their shoe methodology and in this case, I wouldn't even ask for an ounce of change. Just keeeeep on Kron-ing (and take Saga along with you of course…)
