Edginess can be the perfect way to break style monotony this season and if shoes are your biggest style weakness, it pays to experiment with fun alternatives like the ones from the the spring/summer 2012 Heavy Machine shoe collection.
It takes quite a lot of courage to be different in any area but
the rewards of cultivating behaviours that make you stand out can
be extremely high. This is particularly true in fashion where
unique touches are highly valued and encouraged. Heavy Machine is a
brand that has chosen to stay away from style uniformity and dazzle
us with architectural vibes in every collection and the
spring/summer 2012 season is a wonderful expression of the brand's
The new season designs bring together two seemingly opposing concepts: retro vibes and futuristic aspects. Blending unexpected shapes, materials and colors, the brand adds uniqueness and statement value to the beautifully crafted designs. Forget torturing your feet in sandals with ultra thin heels in order to make a statement and opt for adorable chunky heels which blend style and functionality without compromising on design. Unexpected color punches prove a fabulous option for those who aren't necessarily keen on the whole color blocking trend yet like a few bold vibes.
The sources of inspiration are among the most diverse. Names
like Funny Tank, Spectral Visitor, Robot's Feet, Thumbelina,
Vintage Mango or Underground Cloud reveal the diversity of elements
that have come to influence the elements of designers or even the
conceptual approach. However, the most important source of
inspiration for the collection was children fairytales and
playgrounds which received a stylish makeover.
The difference in textures among the various designs is provided by the varied materials used like sheepskin, cow skin, patent leather or nappa leather. With the multitude of exciting cutouts, asymmetric vibes or unexpected color punches, determining the 'it' factor of the designs becomes extremely hard. However, it is the end result which ultimately matters and there are no doubts in anyone's mind that the brand has yet again managed to make us reconsider what the style boundaries should be when selecting a new pair of shoes this season.
