There is nothing basic and normal at Escape.
That is the battle cry of the stylists and buyers for the ultra-lux boutique at The Cove, and they prove their point, beautifully, with the exclusive and one-of-a-kind Chrissie Morris shoes they carry. Just how exclusive are they? Well, Morris, a British designer who learned her trade in Italy and has a cult following among only the most tuned-in fashionistas and fashion editors, creates custom-designed, fabulous wares for Escape and Escape alone. Check out the selection and you’ll feel like you’re at Fashion Week in Milano.
Why are they such a hit? Morris’ shoes marry the old-school idea of craftsmanship with progressive styling and a daring mix of colors, textures and textiles. That’s why Chrissie Morris is “The collection that everyone is talking about,” according to (tres chic) Grazia UK.
Morris’ shoes are hand-crafted, womanly and amazing. We guarantee that if you wear a pair, you will be the only one in the party with them on. First thing’s first – she adores height. If you’re looking for flats, keep walking. Morris’ creations are sky-high and glamorous – put them on and you’ll strut like you’re on a catwalk. And they’re actually comfortable! Must be the meticulous construction. For spring 2012, Morris adores wedges, stilettos and platforms in python skins of all colors and combinations. Bravo – we’re totally in step with her vision. Her “Dorothy Shoe”, the centerpiece of her new collection for Escape, pairs a retro platform with bold stripes. Fierce, we think, is the proper word to describe them. This is high-fashion at its finest. So have some fun. When’s the last time you wore a work of art? Morris’ shoes make it easy to dress to thrill.
