If you weren’t at New York Fashion Week, then you might just be out of the footwear loop so let us recap what you NEED to know. Tsubo partnered up with emerging designer Timo Weiland to create a 7-piece capsule collection for their women’s Spring 2012 footwear line.
According to Tsubo Brand Manager, Jason Mora, “Timo Weiland has been on our radar for a long time. We were looking for an emerging designer with a similar aesthetic, who could incorporate his unique signature into our line, while still remaining true to Tsubo’s heritage. We’re very excited to debut our first collaborative collection with the Timo Weiland design house.”
Inspired by the romance between an Italian military commander and the daughter of an Italian seamstress during the 1930s, the collection features chunky demi-wedges and flatforms. Military theme — CHECK. Straps that look like club wristbands — CHECK. Wait, how are those ideas cohesive?!
We’ll look past the random wristband snap and continue to covet this collection. If Santa is listening, please add this to your IOU list because these babies won’t be released until January.
