Take comfort and revved-up leopard and you have my look this week. Making shapes with this suede cut-worked clutch, leopard gets a new dimension with the declaration ‘Red is the New Black’. The fashion skater is so far removed from what we might once have naively referred to as a ‘trainer’; this style now represents a fairy tale in a shoe. From modest beginnings, once upon a time there was a sport shoe…. This season the skater comes with bows, embellishment and red leopard and you wear them with a clutch. *Scarlett

Pink AND red I hear you say? Yes and you know what? It works. There’s something about combining these two striking shades that looks quite sophisticated. Like navy and black, the key is to make it bold and decisive, so everyone knows you are making a deliberate choice to wear red and pink together. This colour combination says: I can see beyond the obvious…And it’s gorgeous. *Scarlett
Creative Director Rebecca Farrar-Hockley has declared ‘Red is the new Black’.
The Kurt Geiger Autumn Winter 14 campaign sees the return of the red-haired English rose in a fashion fairy tale that leads us into the forest. So make space in your shoe and accessory wardrobe for plenty of red and where our go to LBD is sure to be replaced with the LRD (little red dress), the Kurt Geiger design team have paid close attention to finding you a new LBB (little black boot) collection designed to wear with every shade of scarlet. Get ready for a season that turns heads. *Scarlett
I snapped this behind the scenes shot to remember these Kurt Geiger London ‘Dusty’ Go-Go boots (available from September) and to remember that red and pink make a perfect pair. Look out for how to pair red and pink on the blog this week!
Having broken its bare necessity shoe boundaries, the espadrille is getting hotter and hotter and this week I’m all about hot metal. We’ve worn sporty heels, we’re in love with fashion skaters and now we have metallic espadrilles to add to the sporty sexy mix. Glamorous and fit for purpose, you can’t beat silver with a touch of tribal print for the most relaxed take on summer sports. *Scarlett
