If you love a bit of theatrics in your footwear, the resort ’17 collaboration from Beau Coops and Romance Was Born will suit you to a T.
Unveiled as part of the Liberace-inspired Romance Was Born show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia last week, the 22-piece collection boasts opulent thigh high boots with exaggerated ruffle side paneling, slippers with soft fur lining and embellished metal tips as well as ankle boots and mules with a metallic or suede flared heel.
Carrie Cooper, founder and creative director of Beau Coops, was influenced by the exquisite gilded ceilings of the late 1800s in the Royal Palais in Paris – creating an eclectic collection of footwear, that while spectacularly colourful and undoubtedly OTT, “stays true” to the Beau Coops aesthetic.
“For me working with Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales is akin to taking a sip from Alice in Wonderland’s cup and falling down the rabbit hole,” says Carrie. “While still staying true to the Beau Coops aesthetic, the foundations have been beautifully and psychedelically dressed up in the Romance Was Born world. Beau Coops in Romance land.”
This is the second time Beau Coops and Romance Was Born have teamed up, and we’re hoping it won’t be the the last! The resort ’17 collection will be available in store and online at beaucoops.com from November and priced from approximately AU$499 – $699.
