The shoe that defined a generation of footwear fashion during the decade of love, and stood in line at Studio 54, is debuting at the gallery at Buffalo Exchange Colorado. The gallery will transform into a righteous Sixties Biba-inspired Kork-Ease POP Boutique featuring our iconic Kork-Ease platform shoe, as well as styles from our fall 2014 collection.
Local artisans, Fin Art and Justin Schmidt, have descended upon Buffalo Exchange Colorado at 51 Broadway in Denver to transform the gallery into a modern-day interpretation of Biba – the famous Abingdon Road London boutique known for revolutionizing the fashion landscape of the early 1960’s.
It was during the 60’s the platform shoe came into style – the independent youth culture was defining its own sense of fashion derived from street culture, and from free-spirited artists, musicians and designers. It was the simplicity, comfort and organic look of Kork-Ease designs that epitomized the earthly, natural outlook and the optimistic spirit embraced by the youth culture. During the 70’s, the platform cork wedge revolutionized the disco-chic era – it would become forever be synonymous with the era.
Let’s continue the story – celebrate with us at the Mod Party on November 15 in the Broadway store gallery as we revel in over 60 years of Kork-Ease. Dress fab and come ready for an outta sight party!
The Kork-Ease POP Boutique at Buffalo Exchange Colorado opens November 1, 2014.
