June 17, 2011 - PRLog -- After "body art", it ‘shoes art’!

Does tattoo art fascinates you, but not enough to make you push the door of a shop body art? Do not worry: these designer accessories and ready-to-wear items have been high-lighted in recent years by offering collections with graphics directly inspired by the creations from the great names of the tattoo realm. Here is a small preview of the latest news amongst the brand underground.

At Iron Fist [http://www.spartoo.co.uk/Iron-Fist-b915.php], each shoe is illustrated through an explosion of colours, mixed with tattoo art, graffiti, manga comics or 70's. The brand draws its name from a famous comic hero Iron Fist. A melting pot of culture, influenced bystreetwear, punk and goth movements, is what Mike and Travis, the creators of the brand, offer in their collections. The result: mere test models have been elevated to true creative work of arts.

Born in 2004, in collaboration between Christian Audigier, a product terrible of the fashion underground, and Don Ed Hardy, the "godfather of tattoo, Ed Hardy embodies the concept of lifestyle accessories. All the strengths of its collections  are based on printed designs largely inspired  by artistic creations of star tattoo, body art graphics and illustrations. Speaking to fans of streetwear and strong character, Ed Hardy [http://www.spartoo.co.uk/Ed-Hardy-b601.php] appeals to people on five continents.

More than a pair of shoes: they’re an institution for any punk rocker who respects himself! Because who has not had their Creepers phase?! Made popular in the '50s with the rise of Teddy Boys or musical genres such as rockabilly, they appear as THE standard for rebellious attitude! Thick soles to gain height in extravagant concert grounds nearly 60 years after they first appeared, again and again Creepers is revolutionizing fashion. Revisited by TUK, [http://www.spartoo.co.uk/TUK-b277.php] they have retained their eccentric touch.
