In the words of Hot Chocolate, “oh, you sexy thing.”
For his latest appearance at New York Fashion Week, German ready-to-wear designer Marcel Ostertag sent a sizzling series of shoes down the runway that channeled a fun-filled 1970s vibe.
The collection was a collaboration with German footwear brand Tamaris, best known for its affordable fashion-comfort styles. And while we couldn’t verify the comfort level in those catwalk shoes, they definitely delivered on fashion — and affordability. According to the brands, the Marcel Ostertag x Tamaris collection will retail for $60 to $180.
Ostertag told FN that the price tag was a major factor in the partnership:
“In working with Tamaris on the collaboration, I wanted to allow every woman who loves fashion to experience an exclusive shoe design that was affordable and fashionable, “ he said. “Like my collection for spring ’18, the inspiration was ’70s disco and all the colorful vibes of the era. All women can wear these feminine shoes every day for a great night out or a simple day at the office.”
The spring ’18 Marcel Ostertag x Tamaris line is actually the brands’ second collection together. The first one debuted for fall ’17 and included nine styles, but this latest offering for spring consists of a whopping 25 different shoes.
Some of the standouts that appeared on the runway included a multi-colored loafer with a clear block heel, glittery ankle boots and T-straps and towering platform sandals.
