She complemented me on my last post and was not off the mark when she said that my blog runs along the same lines as her own asthetic. Celia Marco designs shoes that I could most definitly rock. Wearing them to gigs would make me feel cooler than the band. Marco's collections venture into the different realms of rock n' roll and her shoes embody characters of each era.
The 50's Hot Dog, Be-Bop-A-Lula and Aloha from Hawaii collections would have been worn by followers of Elvis, Chuck Berry and up and coming rocker of the fifites. These collections hold the spirit of good girls who are wide-eyed at the sight of rock stars and those just wanna dance against daddy's better wishes. 50's Hot Dog is composed of fun fabrics, crocheted and woven sandals and peeptoes. Be-Bop-A-Lula would have been worn by bebop jazz loving girls with its sassy patent, leather and suede designs. There are also foxy takes on the masculine cowboy boot with bright colors, tassels and laces up the back. I'm especially in love with the desperado-esque gold cowboys. My favorite collections ,Motorcity 5 and Unknown Pleasures, would be rock stars if they weren't shoes. Steel toe stilletto's, bright lace-up ankle boots in leather patent and suede make Motorcity 5 live up to its name. My favorites are the black stilletto's with a white cuff around the ankle with black buttons on the side and a gold chain hanging down the front. Her current collection, Unknown Pleasures, displays grown up mary janes, metallics and a variety of ankle and knee high boots with laces and buckles. Metallic and sude flats with studs and broaches put a new take on what has become a flat shoe phenomenon since last summer. I have no doubt that her designs will be worn by the likes of Sharon Foo, Alison Mossshart, Jennifer Herrema and many more rockers to come.
