Beyonce recently posted Kathyrn Wilson’s shoes on Instagram.
Now the footwear designer has given us another reason to write about her with the release of a sparkling limited edition line of precious pumps designed especially for the BMW Polo Open, Clevedon on February 23, 2014.
Wilson’s Ponsardin heel, named in honour of Madame Clicquot Ponsardin, will be released in February. Each shoe has been decorated with gemstones so that they sparkle like a flute of Champagne, and the style comes in three colours – black, cobalt blue and Champagne of course. No doubt Wilson will be wearing a pair in the Veuve Clicquot marquee.
As for Beyonce, the singer snaffled the sample pair of the Kathryn Wilson ‘Karlya’ loafer (named after fashion stylist Karlya Smith) from Wilson’s soon-to-be-released winter 2014 collection on her recent visit to New Zealand.
Wilson names her shoes after friends, including her those in the fashion industry. MiNDFOOD’s associate editor Carolyn Enting had a shoe, the Enting brogue, named after her in 2007. The silver brogue is one of many shoes on display at exhibition 10-Year Retrospective – Kathryn Wilson currently on show at Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery, Auckland and free to view. But you better be in quick. The exhibition is in its final days and closes end of day on December 3.
