Love Art Wear Art SS11

As the madness of London Fashion Week draws to a close, we took on an invite to the launch of Nicole le Grange's new footwear label, Love Art Wear Art. We were treated to beautiful shoes swinging in bird cages, free champagne, fairy cakes and a dangerous zone in which to try on and buy shoes direct on the night.

Named Nika, the debut collection draws on influences from South African-born Nicole's travels, and especially her love of Nigerian Chris Ofili's artwork. She said herself he wanted to design a range that filled that gap between low-quality and ridiculously pricey, sourcing a Spanish family-owned supplier and only using natural materials of the highest quality.
It shows. These shoes are delicious. Plus, there are only fifty of each style being made, and each pair is numbered. And in case you were wondering, Nicole (below) had been on her feet in them for five hours when we met, and insisted we quote that they were still going strong.
If you're into her mix of print, eye-popping colour and sexy but stable wooden heels check out more here. Thanks a lot to Nicole for hosting a great night and being such a sweetheart to us. Yay to the Haribo-filled goodie bag at the end too.
