CLEO B POP-UP SHOP

Having blogged about their very cute “Tricky” style in my Hot Summer Hot Footwear feature, I was invited to the Cleo B pop-up shop at Andaz Liverpool Street in London.

The Setting

Nestled in this glamorous hotel, Cleo B set up shop in an ex-Masonic temple: the perfect back-drop for a collection full of mystery and decadence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The brand were not only show-casing their fabulous new “Pixels” collection for Autumn/Winter 2013, but also had products from previous seasons for sale.

Previous Seasons

Check out these peep-shoe-boots:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…sleek but playful wedges…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…not forgetting a chic classic ballet pump, in black suede, pink nappa, & natural raffia…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…all with this adorable sole detail:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleo B’s footwear is made in Spain, from quality leathers and fabrics. Having visited similar factories myself, I am pleased that the fine skills of these Spanish shoe-makers are being utilised by new young brands.

These Tetris-inspired ballerinas cleverly piece together squares of metallic leathers, to give that 1980s computer-graphic look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This ornate bootie features a surprisingly complementary pairing of contrasting textures: purple suede and lizardskin

This elegant court shoe looks super-cute with a fur pom-pom shoe-clip…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and ultra sexy without…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and the shoe-clips come in loads of great colours…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and styles…

It was lovely meeting Cleo, Biz, and the team, and finding out a little bit more about this British brand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what’s next for Cleo B? Will they be opening a permanent store for our delectation? They said “no”, but Cleo told me about her exciting new plans for more fabulous shoe-clips, some affordable leather Oyster card holders, and of course more beautiful footwear.
