Cleo B is a favourite of ours. Each season the designer, Cleo Barbour, draws us in with her penchant for details. Magicland, her fourth collection, features inspiration from the fantastical side of life and delves deep into the blissfulness of fairy tales.
On the evening of Cleo B's S/S '11 launch, and at her Belgravia flagship store in London, we were greeted by a gold painted angel, a monochrome clown, pom-pom clip-ons, and Cleo's handmade nazars, which added to the whimsical feeling of the night. The colour palette of lilacs, pistachio, taupes, and peaches only added to the romanticism of the collection, which are all great shades for summer.
I loved the different heel heights: from cute suede flats topped with ribbons and gold baubles, striking suede and patent leather mid-level heels with metallic accents, to the downright seductive pumps she calls Flamingo with its Spanish-inspired roped details, and the signature Cleo B wedge, that now come in the curvaceous shoe boot, that are topped in handmade Swarovski crystal droplets — there is a style to satisfy a multitude of shoe lovers. Below are some favourites and a glimpse into a fun-filled event (see more photos here). Be sure to visit Cleo B to see more from the collection, and indulge before they're all gone!
