Starting today that cutesy look will be available to actual children, because designer Charlotte Dellal shrank down her designs to fit on childrenas feet. The new childrenas collection is called aIncy,a from the Incy Wincy Spider nursery rhyme, which you might remember as starring an arachnid described as aitsy bitsya or aeensie weensie.a aI always thought Iad design little shoes for little people as soon as I had a girl,a Dellal toldA The Telegraph . aHowever with two boys now and a third child on the way I decided to finally launch aIncya regardless. Maybe Iall have a girl this time!a The Incy shoes are tiny versions of Dellalas grown-up shoes, but in this case that doesnat mean age-inappropriate high heels or fringed gold wedges, just an array of very cute flat shoes in leopard print, velvet with sparkly spider webs, dressy satin, and of course the famous kitty faces. The smaller shoes still have pretty high prices though, with the kitty face image source shoes ringing in at A195, or $300, on the Charlotte Olympia website . In addition to the Incy collection, thereas a mini aWincya line for babies, with either the cat face slippers or spider web slippers forA $116. <br>Source: http://www.thegloss.com/2013/08/12/fashion/shoes/charlotte-olympia-children/
The movement is known as experimental marketing or hacking of the physical world. Here are five examples of innovators taking the leap for the rest of us and standing out in the crowd. 1. With the help of iStrategyLabs, Redds Apple Ale launched an online and offline interactive experience by which participants could destroy targets at a bar with an apple launcher. Connecting a baseball launcher to a web-based app, users were able to aim the launcher and shoot at various targets, such as bottles of ale, a dunk tank, zombie cardboard cutouts and more, just like a video game, for a chance to win prizes over a two-week period. The hack garnered the attention of 200,000 to 300,000 people that without this type of integration would not have been able to participate. Corbett said this approach is about real-time connectivity at scale that bridges the online and offline world, but added that it is very difficult to do this well since there are no blue prints, best practices or roadmaps. <br>Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/toyota/2013/08/13/talking-shoes-and-other-innovations-hacking-the-physical-world/
Saint Laurent's Boat Shoes Are Good For Any Occasion, But Are They Really Worth $545?
JM http://t.co/y2AlyVPxf8 GQ Fashion (@GQFashion) July 11, 2013 I wanted to see what would make the fashion Gods at GQ recommend a seemingly ordinary, albeit expensive, boat shoe, so I reached out to the company to see what all the fuss was about. To the naked eye, it doesn't look much different from a Sperry or Sebago, but all that changes once you slip the shoe on. Saint Laurent (formerly Yves Saint Laurent) chose 100% calf-skin leather to craft the outside and inside of the shoe. This high-quality leather is then refined and tanned in France and Italy. It's also what separates the shoe from the rest of the pack, and allows them to mold seamlessly to the wearer's foot. After my second day of wear, I felt the innersole begin to slide and move around. <br>Source: http://www.sfgate.com/technology/businessinsider/article/Saint-Laurent-s-Boat-Shoes-Are-Good-For-Any-4726905.php
