Beyond The Lita - My Jeffrey Campbell Wishlist!

Leopard print Lita, £120

At a recent bloggers’ event I clocked the gorgeous Emma Waldron in a pair of studded Litas that I’ve not been able to get out of my head ever since. So I hold her entirely to blame for my creeping around the internet, drooling over pictures of Jeffrey Campbell footwear.

I know I'm late to the party - his distinctive designs have inspired a million blog posts (check out Rosemary's here) - I guess this makes it a million and one!


Martini Spike Black Leather Shoes, £105

But as much as I admire them I don’t think Litas are for me –a general lack of balance and co-ordination mean I’d pose a very real danger to myself and those around me in a heel that high.  Plus, look, goddammit, I like my shoes to be comfy.

Benched Brogue, Cream and Black, £135


Wedges, flats and block heels are much more my style –and happily, Campbell also offers a range of designs that are very wearable, while retaining his signature quirky edge.
Tier Stud Leopard Print Sandals, £95

The designs featured here all caught my eye on the Cruise website – I love this luxury Scottish store and have just discovered their online boutique. This could be dangerous…

What do you think, anything floating your boat?

Thanks for the shout-out! I loved those benched brogues but have it on good authority they are really uncomfortable. Phew! I own a pair of rather nondescript Jeffrey Campbells, green suede ankle boots, as I'm still too wimpy to try out the Litas. Maybe I should give it another go ...

It´s really art, isn´t it?!

These are gorgeous - I can see why you would drool ! I would fall over and kill myself in these though - I have come to realise that I have no balance what so ever.

I have a pair of Topshop boots very similar to Litas so I couldn't justify buying a pair ever! They are such an investment though- they are still cool after the longest time. I think the trick with JCs is that most of the footwear is really chunky and has a slimming effect on your legs- plus usually pretty comfy because of the platform. Bit of a genius!

Emma Henderson said...

They are really quite reasonably priced too, I think, which adds to the appeal xo

Sarah Lanagan said...

I love the look of them but wouldn't wear them really, great for shoots though! You should have a look up here on Meath St... now those are some mad shoes haha!

Jeffrey Campbell is a man after my heart...he really supports the vertically challenged.

Emma said...

jeffrey campbell's are really works of art for your feet! I don't think I would even attempt to walk in a pair of litas, at 5'9" in flats I would feel like a giant! I love the flats though!

Oh, I love that leopard print sandal!

ElsaD said...

Well, I applaud his vision and creative approach...I'd certainly go with the Martini flats. As Joanne said, I would be scared of falling from up there! ;) XOXO

As per my recent comment, Lita doesn't do it for me;) but I got a pair of studded JC loafers recently and I could just look at them all day long:)
