Shoe Colours Inspired By Everyday Stationery Items
If there was any doubt just how much love there is for some of the essential pieces of stationery we all use on a regular basis, the news that footwear designs are even being inspired by the colour shade of such items confirms the fact.
That’s because here at the Post Office Shop we’ve come across a footwear company that provides a colour-matching service for shoes, which enables women to select their chosen colour swatch by taking inspiration from everyday items – including stationery!
Shoe colours inspired by stationery
Certainly appropriate as shoes to wear to work in the office, we learn that a customer has requested a pair of heels in a post-it notes inspired shade of yellow. And another customer has apparently also requested shoes in a forest-green shade inspired by colouring crayons.
Beans means shoes!
As well as these stationery favourites, British footwear label, the Rainbow Club, has also had shade requests inspired by Chanel’s ‘Rouge Noir’ nail polish, the same bright yellow as Selfridges department store bag and even a Heinz Baked Bean orange!
Stationery impacting on the world of fashion
When it comes to crayons, this isn’t the first time that this classic stationery accessory has inspired designer fashion. A blooming clever use of crayons has also recently seen a famous department store in New York feature crayon-inspired outfits that have made it all the way to the display window’s of Bloomingdale’s Manhattan-based store on 59th Street.
There is little doubt that stationery is creating quite a stir in the world of fashion right now with brands like Montblanc, Smythson and Moleskine crossing over into fashion accessories to widen the appeal of their products.
And more brands may well follow suit making the transition from mere stationery brands to position themselves as fashion accessories, so watch this space!
