I am a sophomore studying Fashion Merchandising and hope to minor in entrepreneurship and/or economics. I am from New Jersey, I say BAYgels and WARDer and I am proud of it. However, unlike Snooks, my style is casual, classic, with a whimsical, romantic twist. I love good food, traveling, DIY projects, music and (surprise)… fashion. I look forward to sharing my thoughts, lessons and inspirations with you. So here it goes!
As much as I hate to see summer time end, I am glad to be back in Kent and away from the Jersey Shore crew that inhabited my home state over three years ago. While I got to spend a week down at the shore, most of my time was spent in the hustle and bustle of New York City for a Public Relations internship with Plomo, an up and coming contemporary shoe brand.
For all of you fashionistas who create trends, investing in a pair of Plomos is a must. The shoes are chic, daring and truly unique. The designers Keltse and Galia gain their creativeness from traveling, food, people and even books they read. While I did not get to spend much time with Galia because she lives in Mexico, Keltse is the epitome of artsy chic. The girl can pull off any outfit and her gaze holds a twinkle that only true artists possess.
The Spring 2012 Collection was inspired by the French Riviera and the Southern Italian Coast. The shoes capture elements of the beach with cork and wooden platforms. Lavender fields, Van Gogh’s paintings and Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon are shown through the pale pallet the designers decided on. Inspiration for strappy oxfords in soft gray and beige leathers came from the Pope’s Palace, stone walls and Avignon’s broken bridge. The end result – romantic, mysterious footwear that leaves you asking for more.
For Fall 2013, the girls capture the culture of Merida, Mexico in their shoes. From intricate architecture surrounded by tropical jungles to the local people called yucatecos, Merida was full of inspiration. Loafers, oxfords, and fringed boots in natural and dark earth tones complete the upcoming collection. While a bulk of the line displays a men-inspired look, curvy-silhouettes and pointed toes add a feminine touch.
You can find Plomo Shoes online at these sites: solestruck, piperlime and isaay. The shoes are also in several boutiques such as Calypso and Lulu Brandt. Plomo hopes to start selling directly to their buyers in the spring.
