Tuck into Camilla Elphick's seductive spread of new season footwear
London’s rising footwear star Camilla Elphick fêted her Autumn/Winter 2017 collection with a grand party at L’Escargot during London Fashion Week, coined a Surreal Shoe Soiree.
Salvador Dalí's iconic cookbook, Les Dîners de Gala, informed the collection of surrealist and epicurean details, including feline prints, bejewelled butterfly wings and swimming fish, set amongst gleaming patent leather and rich velvet. Elphick’s signature PEZ heels were also updated with a crystal-eyed surrealist lobster embellished on the heel.
Shoes were laid out on a banquet table, nestled amid cake, jelly, candlesticks and champagne. Not even the eye-catching, edible centrepiece however could take away from the resplendent footwear. Our favourite? A pair of sandals with a leather applique female swimmer, diving down the shoe.
