The best part of winter is by far the fashion! This season, I’m loving pairing black on black so I’ve gone with this look to show how I would wear the Betts Westfield Exclusive shoe, the ‘Palermo’ bootie. It works so well with the edgy shapes of the clothing and the jewellery, perfect for the Melbourne streets in winter…Kate Moss eat your heart out!
I spoke to the team from Betts to discuss how they interpret the Westfield Exclusive and what exciting new styles they have in store for AW14.
How would you style your Westfield Exclusive piece?
‘Palermo’ is inspired by one of the strongest looks on the catwalks this season – Pretty Punk. We would wear the ‘Palermo’ bootie with a floral slip dress and leather biker jacket, complete with a plaid shirt tied around the waist.
Where in the world would the Betts Westfield Exclusive bootie fit right in?
Right here in Australia, of course! Although our collections are inspired by the global catwalks and trends, we adapt each product to relate to our Betts customer. Whether it’s to the office or on a night out, the ‘Palermo’ will fit right in!
What else should we look out for in your AW14 collection?
For AW14 our overall concept is ‘Beautiful Rebels’ which sees punk and grunge influences mixed with more typically ‘pretty’ features such as lace and florals. One of the biggest looks from our collection is the block heeled boot, so look out for our favourite styles, ‘Dismiss’ and ‘Paramore’. With the resurgence of 90′s fashion, we’re noticing style icons like Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian rocking the mustard Timberland-inspired boot, so we’ll be picking up on this with our ‘Bronx’ style.
