Jeffrey Campbell is not known for his subtlety. The LA-based shoe designer's best-selling styles are super-high and chunky, done in a range of colors and materials (we've seen them covered in fur and spikes). Australian label Black Milk is similarly attention-grabbing, with brightly-printed leggings, dresses, bodysuits, skirts and swimwear. In what seems like a natural marriage, the two labels have come together on a capsule collection of vertiginous shoes for online retailer Solestruck.
The collection, which went live on Solestruck yesterday for pre-order, features three Black Milk prints—the spacey-looking "Rainbow Galaxy," the graphic "Bone Machine," and the comic strip-like "Sick of Men"—on iconic Campbell styles like the Lita and the Back Off. Prices range from $189.95 to $249.95 and according to the Times, Solestruck has ordered an "abundance" of the shoes to keep up with both brands' rabid fan bases.
