We’ve been long time fans of Ce Ce Chin and her progressive line of women’s footwear, 80%20. For Spring, she was inspired by the casual glamour of the 1970’s – think the ladies of leisure on Fantasy Island and The Love Boat. Many of the styles feature cork platforms so they’re chic but still very wearable and comfortable. Another big theme in the collection is “cut outs” – whether it’s peekaboo toes or a glimpse of an ankle in a high boot, 80%20 gives you the unexpected in a fresh, young way. Cut outs were also featured in intricate latice-type work in ankle boots – very cute! The color palette is perfect for spring and evokes the sunshine, flowers and fruits of the season. From a lemon yellow, melon-y orange, and an Iris purple, the colors are complemented by brown and black leather. It’s wonderful to see how the line has progressed and you can listen to the lovely Ce Ce tell you about the collection and the inspiration here:
