What’s at the end of the rainbow? It’s not a pot of gold. It’s something better: Kotur! Inspired by the art and design attitudes of the 1950s, Fiona Kotur looked to the Robert Indiana’s sign paintings and Memphis’ Lansky Brothers, the famed tailors who fashioned Elvis’ signature look. The result is a plethora of candy-coated colors that are enough make Rainbow Brite jealous (if you don’t know who Rainbow Brite is, you might be too young to read this site), and plenty of kaleidoscopic, pearlescent eye candy that’s enough to transfix until the next spring season. Not to mention some iconic symbols of Americana, like the eagle, with a perfectly bejeweled makeover.
While the elements of bright hue, sparkly glitter, and colorblocked panels (as seen on the flirty shoes) are purely capricious, these treats aren’t just for little kids. These box clutches are all about frolicsome fun imparted with a decidedly grown-up sense of polish, thanks to the carefully placed acrylic, Deco-meets-modern patterns. Next spring is going to be a colorful one! Merrick with eagle embellishment ($950), Merrick with perspex swirl ($950), and Levin ($795) to be available in spring. Kotur’s Fall ’14 collection is available now on NET-A-PORTER.
