MOSCHINO and Kartell have joined forces to create a new collection of plastic ballet shoes. Following the success of the Mademoiselle chairs, designed by Philippe Starck, the design company Kartell and Moschino are set to launch a new range for spring/summer 2010- 11.
"The synergy between Kartell and Moschino is rooted in the creative and experimental identity of the two Italian brands, which has led them to work together on projects that extend from design to fashion and vice versa," said Rossella Jardini, Moschino's creative director. "The BowWow shoes are a result of this reciprocal influence and are both a design object and an accessible, fun fashion accessory."
Constructed entirely from interwoven plastic, the lightweight BowWow shoes come presented with the iconic Moschino bow. The designs are 100 per cent recyclable and available in a range of colours including peach, red, green and blue.
The collection is due to land in stores in January 2011.
