Want conceptual fashion overflowing with pedantic exposition? Say hello to Austrian designer Isabelle Steger. Enough with the pretense though-these are quite simply fascinating pieces. Click to enlarge
And speaking of clog shoe: Rachel Comey Halla clog = ♥ ♥ ♥. A couple quick blog notes: I’m off this week due to the holiday so posting is going to be a bit spotty and not always done at the normal time.
Big thanks to the recent linkage from Cycnoches (we’ve been lj friends for a long time!), Woolgathering&Miscellany (irl and internet friends! ILU Grace), and Karey M. (LOVELY blog)
Those of you who have been following Pour Porter since its livejournal days, may remember me posting a few years back about footwear company Rosa Mosa the brainchild, or maybe more appropriately, the brainy child of Simone Springer and Yuji Mizobuchi. They were doing the clog boot and shoe long before its recent popularity. What makes Springer and Mizobuchi’s footwear so singular is that they follow no trends, and all of their shoes are handmade in Austria with a strong focus on high quality craftmanship. You can purchase some of their shoes on gravitypope. They have a nice blog that they’re fairly good at updating regularly. You can find a link to it via their website or in my blog roll list in the sidebar
I tried hard this week to come up with something that took me a bit out of my comfort zone, something playful and a little less me. While I probably wouldn’t have guts to wear this all together at the same time, I love the individual pieces and I’d certainly wear navy heels with navy tights! I do feel it’s quite similar in colour palette to my previous C&P posts so I’ve failed on that front. Unfortunately/Fortunately, once you’ve established your style it’s quite the challenge to push yourself beyond that. So this week was an attempt at stepping outside my usual -scout’s honor.
