Get Your First Glimpse at the Upcoming Jeffrey Campbell X Karmaloop Collection!
Maybe I’m just becoming more and more desensitized to ridiculously high platforms, chunky heels, and spikes galore, but I’ve gradually evolved from being borderline afraid of Jeffrey Campbell creations to a full-fledged obsessive fan. From skull-embellished smoking loafers and spike-bedazzled Lita boots to strappy wedge sneakers even I could practically slam-dunk in, the edgy’s designers looks aren’t always practical, but they’re always exciting to look at. And when I found out he was joining forces with Karmaloop to create his first-ever capsule collection for the online store, I knew it would be something I wouldn’t want to miss… even if I didn’t have the guts to buy any of the styles myself! Due to hit e-shelves at the end of summer, the Paradigm Collection features the collaborative creations of Karmaloop shoe buyer Joe Farese and the JC team, and the result is a kooky, athletic-inspired mix of sporty space-age platforms, Gaga-inspired heel-less boots, and plenty of futuristic sneaker wedges, perfect for the “human alien” in all of us. Plus, it’s hard not to be stoked when the Phillip Mimms-designed lookbook is awesomely creepy-cool!
