Blogging about the fashion scene in Singapore excites me. But if you haven’t noticed.. it has mostly been about clothes. Drapey garments. Maybe some accessories. Things that go on hangers and racks.
Luckily for us, Alice Soedirman and Cheryl Mok of Shito have not forgotten about dressing up our feet.
The year-old shoe label is all about sultry suede and leather confections that are as edgy as they are uncompromisingly feminine. What they want for their shoes is to empower the wearer, and I think I can safely say that they do a pretty damn fine job of that. The black tasselled wedge is a special collaboration with Max Tan, and I adore it. Man I think I mention the guy/his label a bit too much.
Their signature shape is a bulbous upturned toe-box with a centre-fold – somewhat strange in an almost animalistic manner at first, but somehow frames our feet so well. They are said to be pretty kind on the feet and wear comfortably too.
Styling them on a platter with cookies, strawberries and chocolate drizzle just make them all the more desirable, don’t you think? Even the simple ballet flats. I’d polish off the entire serving.
Shito has been retailing at Blackmarket, Ztamp, Antipodean and its own online store since its inception, and to my surprise, has also joined the new rotation of designers at Parco’s next Next fashion Incubator.
