Selfridges | Oz The Great & Powerful
Selfridges celebrate the release of Disney‘s ‘Oz The Great & Powerful’ with an exclusive footwear collection by Nicholas Kirkwood and exhibition of original costumes and props from the movie displayed in the Oxford Street store windows.
‘I’m delighted to be working with Disney on Oz The Great and Powerful. The characters from the film are as rich as the Land of Oz itself and I’ve had some great fun creating shoes to represent them. Each of the materials I have used are very much inspired by the characters.
The Wizard’s shoe has embroided silver on top of suede and reflects the power that his character so desires.Glinda’s character is whiter than white, almost angelic, so I wanted her shoe to reflect this. It has white lace infused with suede, a silver metallic pleated organza backing and then Swarovski crystals on the toe. It has a ladies shape but a very princess feel.
The dark and mysterious feel of Evanora’s character is what inspired me most for this design. She is incredibly complex so I choose various materials and textures including black lace and sequins to show this. The boot inspired by Theodora is deep in rouges and blacks and features perforated velvet with ruby sequins underneath, representing the potential darkness within.’ – Nicholas Kirkwood.
