The Shoe Game: Ana Locking’s shoe stance

Photobucket

For spring Ana Locking took to the human body, and literally turned it inside out, a eye popping color blocking theme, full of abstract beauty, and applied it to prints, dresses, and shoes. Her latest titled ‘Stance’ for her fall 2011 collection is about taking a “standpoint, the correct one for yourself, within the countless voices, lives and circumstances that make up each of us.”

In this case the blocks of colours, the strong contrasts, the geometric shapes all represent, to Locking, the contrasts and conflicts in each of us. The fact that no-one has just a single identity. And even if we identify with a particular look on the outside consistently, those contrasts and conflicts still exist. As Locking herself says, “visual identity is nothing without the support of feeling and thought.” On a more superficial note, Ana Locking’s fall 2011 / 2012 shoe collection is edgy and bold yet brightly optimistic in it’s colour palette – with the architectural nail-like heel she’s known for.
