Female icons do not come in a more defined silhouette than Atalanta Weller’s muse for Autumn/Winter 2012: The equestrian.
Inspired by the elegance and sophistication of the European style and it’s leathers, the collection takes all the luxurious elements of the Equestrain; Weller then defies the convention by incorporating themes from the vast American deserts and the darkness of the lone ranger that result in the luxurious yet strong graphic elements in the collection.
The signature Atalanta Weller wedge triumphantly returns with tan and black leather woven straps, directly referencing the style of horse’s bridles, as well as Weller’s super high take on leather riding boots. The weaving continues throughout the collection and is put to use on the super chic 2.5 inch cigar heeled boot in black leather and glossy embossed snake prints.
Weller’s graphic style is firmly imprinted onto the collection through the new for 2012 raw stacked check board Cuban heel with, dark glossy snake, embossed on the classic court slipper with elongated toe and her vision of the short cowboy boot in graphic blacks and fresh whites.
Natural supple Italian leather in tan, black and white give an impression of the worn, but elegant leather associated with the equestrian world, mixed with the omnipresent dangers of the desert evoked through the glossy python embossed leather.
The label has an established following as the chic shoe staple of the urban woman’s wardrobe. Atalanta Weller counts Sienna Miller, Jesse J and Nicola Roberts amongst its fans. This season, Atalanta Weller has created show shoes with Womenswear designer Maria Grachvogel and up-and-coming designer Maarten Van Der Horst who is showing with Fashion East.
