Taking centre-stage in iconic children’s shoe brand Start-rite shoes’ AW12 collection is a unique range by Mylenne Klass. The Start-rite by Myleene Klass AW12 collaboration combines traditional Start-rite styles with a twist of colour, fashion and added personal detail from the celebrity mum of two. The result is a collection of classic designs reinvented, all taking their names from some of the classical musician’s favourite operas.
Speaking about her work with Start-rite Myleene said: ‘Working with Start-rite felt like a really natural collaboration, and gave me a chance to combine my love of shoes and fashion with my insights as a mother. The range has been inspired by having my own children and experiencing the compromise many parents face in finding well fitted yet stylish shoes that we both love.’
In line with the long standing shoe brand’s key proposition of providing quality, fitted footwear, the Start-rite by Myleene styles come in whole and half sizes and multi-width fittings. Each shoe is beautifully packaged in a specially designed black and gold box and is lovingly wrapped in specially branded tissue paper.
Carmen is Myleene’s first walking shoe for girls. In bright poppy red and glitter gold this design aims to make little girls’ parents even more excited about taking their first steps. Complete with Myleene’s signature girls’ leopard print lining, and pretty heart detailing Carmen is a stunning first shoe for a first walker. Available in red patent and gold leather sizes S2 to S5 ½ EFG RRP £34.
For older girls La Boheme is a gorgeous classic Mary Jane style, available in poppy red and striking gold and complete with the collection’s eye catching leopard print lining. Myleene’s daughter Ava is already a big fan! Available in red patent and gold leather sizes S6 to L1½ EFG RRP £44.
