bob and sofia...

Normally when you read about Kartell on KOS, I am gushing with praise about one of their creations. But today I'm wondering if Kartell have gone a little crazy. £182 for a pair of wellington boots! Even if they do look like loafers.

Look ahead to Fall/Winter 2016/17, the collaboration between Kartell and N°21 materializes in the form of a new addition to the collection: the “Bob” ankle boot presented in the colours of blue, black, army green, powder pink and burgundy. This product is the natural evolution of the famous N°21 loafer, fruit of Kartell’s advanced technology in plastic material processing and interpreted in a new sophisticated design.

You can get your paws on the Sofia for a little less. She starts at £101.

The Demi Sofia is an ankle boot based on the Sofia boot, with the same tapered foot, 5 cm wedge heel, side tabs and, naturally, the same soft plastic material, and opaque upper in contrast with the heel. Suitable for all day wear, Demi Sofia ankle boots work well with jeans, a mini-skirt and cigarette trousers. The Demi Sofia is also available in a Metal version.


Much as I admire the shiny lines, I couldn't justify paying that even on the rainiest of days...
