SS20: Pop Art
With a retrospective at the Tate Modern this year, Andy Warhol and his fellow pop-art colleagues are more relevant than ever. Challenging the 1960’s art world in a time of huge social and technological change, the pop-art movement feels just as relevant today. In this collection, Rupert was inspired by the bold use of colour often seen in the work of these artists.
Our signature pebble has been given a pop-art makeover. Reimagined as a ring pebble in colourful plexi-glass, this pebble evokes jewellery from the period. Leopard pony calfhair is matched with a bold red, while walnut is paired with an ochre yellow evoking a tortoiseshell finish, and platinum nappa is neutralised with a clear glass.
Meet Estate. A versatile sandal, she can be worn from beach-to-office-to-dinner. Estate features a timeless round toe and two straps sitting across the toes and the bridge of the foot. Combining the bold red with a leopard print pony calfhair, style this adaptable shoe with jeans or smart tailored trousers.
Another member of the pop-art family is Aruba, another versatile shoe. Sitting on a 60mm heel, the pebble sits across the peep toe. The ankle strap is secured with a simple cord bow which can be tied at the front of the foot, or wrapped around the ankle like a ballet shoe. Aruba is an undeniably easy sandal to wear, and at the mid heel height can be worn from dawn to dusk.
This playful pebble is also available on our classic shoe styles this season, such as Brenda (a sibling of Bedfa), and the mid heel continuity pump Nora.
