Bag Addicts Anonymous x Repetto for Autumn/Winter 14



If you're following me on either Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or all three, you'd have noticed that I mentioned an upcoming collaboration with another designer brand, and along with that, I've also posted some behind-the-scenes teaser shots. Some of you have been guessing away at which brand I may possibly be collaborating with after last year's Gucci campaign, while those of you who know me personally have been guessing and bugging me to reveal the brand, but to no avail. Well, actually, one of you DID get it correct.




I'm usually camera-shy and seldom post photos of myself on the blog and social media platforms, but well, here I am! Today, I'm pleased to announce that Bag Addicts Anonymous has collaborated with Repetto on a social media campaign!  


Having opened its boutique at Pavilion KL during the fourth quarter of 2013, Repetto is a brand that is in its infancy in Malaysia. Yes, but only in Malaysia because its history goes way back to 1947! Founded by Rose Repetto, the French brand actually has its beginnings as a ballet shoes company that manufactures pointe shoes with a store on Rue de la Paix in Paris, near the Opera Garnier. The brand's clients include legendary ballet dancers such as Rudolf Nureyev, Serge Gainsbourg and Carolyn Carlson. It is a heritage that the brand has maintained till this day (which is why you'd notice that the pointe shoes and even dance attire are still sold at Repetto boutiques including the one in KL), despite venturing more recently into comfy fashionable ballerina flats that they are more commonly known for, that comes with an adjustable bow in front that you can tighten or loosen depending on the width of your foot. 





One of the new additions to the expanding Repetto ballerina flats line, is the introduction of the jelly version of the usual leather/suede/exotic leather variety of ballerina flats for Autumn/Winter 2014. What I love about jelly (well, rubber actually) is that it's rain-proof, or rather, weather-proof as I'd like to call it. Plus, they're more feminine then wellies now, aren't they? ;) Retailing for RM710, these jelly ballerinas are available in 3 colour combinations: Black with blood orange trims (as worn above), Black with pastel pink trims, and the more subdued black with black trims.

The Arty Cork collection (they're also available in Oxfords) is actually one of my favourites. I'd have snagged this for myself if it weren't for my in-between size. For Repetto, I'm usually a 40, but the 40 in this style was too small (they didn't have half-sizes for this one, boo hoo), while the 41 was too big.  And oh, did I mention that this Arty cork collection is limited to only 300 pairs worldwide, and for a Limited Edition, it retails at the same price as the other Repetto shoes!







In Spring/Summer 2014, Repetto introduced a sporty sneakers line and because of its popularity due to the sheer comfort of it - all of the brand's shoes are engineered with their dance DNA in mind, so they're really flexible, even for wedged sneakers like these, that usually appear more clunky - are also part of their Fall/Winter 2014 collection.  Although my day-to-day style is usually pretty feminine, I found myself instantly drawn to the wedge sneakers. In fact, these were the first pair I picked when I walked into the store. I mean, just look at the perforated coral patent leather that's combined with the charcoal grey leather and aubergine suede, topped with that metallic rose-gold strip combo on top. Well, okay, fine, maybe my love for colour-blocking had a lot to do with it, but I also secretly have had a thing for wedged sneakers ever since Isabel Marant introduced them to the fashion planet, but never really purchased any because I could never imagine how they'd fit with my existing wardrobe. And after wearing them for this shoot, it killed me just a little to part with them. I had trouble bidding adieu to the other shoes too, but I found the sneakers hardest to let go.

Could that smile get any wider! It's like unboxing a Repetto hamper at Christmas! Now, only if these were ALL mine. =P Wanted to ruffle the paper that lined the boxes a little with the shoes arranged more haphazardly but didn't want to ruin the paper and boxes! 

Special thanks to Repetto for selecting Bag Addicts Anonymous as one of your social media partners for this campaign!




Stay tuned and watch this space for another Repetto post, this time, on their Bags! ;D



Repetto is located at Level 3, Pavilion Mall KL, adjacent to BCBG Maxazria.
