Do edgy and pretty shoes sound like an oxy moron to you? I never thought a pair could contain both qualities in equal measure, but Camilla Skovgaard – who is known for using opposing elements, like “fluidity and severity,” and having an appeal towards the “intelligent fashionista” – proves the combination is anything but impossible.
Her uncommon way with the wedge sandal gains new life in brightly colored form. A beautiful shade of aqua takes the “edge” off strong lines and tough geometry. The shape and straps read hard and avant-garde, but that swimming-pool blue is a simply a brilliantly pretty hue. This is my kind of funky – palatable and appealing. Intelligent design, indeed!
