ECCO Spring Summer 2011

Boat Shoes. I feel like living grade 8 all over again.

I really enjoyed ECCO’s fall winter 2010 season but a lot of that was based around the boot. I wondered what the ECCO team would be up to this spring summer season.

Nautical was the theme and blue was a dominate colour.  I perfered the casual shoes to the sandals.  ECCO is following trends though and they’ve added clogs.

I’m not a clog person but I like the Swedish Hasbeens for some reason. The ECCO clogs are interesting because they’ve created a sole that flexes.  You can see it in the above photo, it’s the black area. They also introduced a line of bags at a lower price point.

Joke shoe

ECCO is bringing back their first breakthrough as a company, the Joke shoe from 1978 from a long hiatus. I was instantly reminded of a pair of Mag shoes I have. Mag must have taken some vintage inspiration.

I usually grip about getting paper based lookbooks. The ECCO one was well done. There are a lot of macro shots of the products which reminds me of my own style at times. I preferred the product shots to the editorial for the most part. They also produced a video for the season.

See the entire collection in the slideshow.
