Los Angeles, May 16 (IANS) Actress Kate Bosworth says she was surprised when items from her new footwear line began to fly off the shelves with some styles selling out in just a few hours.
Bosworth told fashion industry trade journal WWD of her debut collection, which she launched at Nordstrom here: “You hope people respond to it. But I didn’t have any expectations of it being that quick.”
Bosworth’s capsule collection, which she designed in collaboration with Matisse Footwear, features a range of star-encrusted boots to sporty flatform sandals, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The “Still Alice” actress, who sported the $379 ‘Dawn’ shoe during the launch, added that she loved trying out different fashion trends in her footwear as it isn’t as nerve-wracking as going for a top-to-toe look.
She said: “Sometimes I think people get a little nervous about wearing a full trend. But if you want to accessorise with a trend, I think it’s a little more palatable. If you were to wear the Kelly in the fawn suede, it gives a little bit of a Seventies flair for summer.”
Bosworth previously shared the inspiration behind the line and admitted she was keen to create a “transitional” collection that could take the wearer from day to night.
“I have always been attracted to fashion that is transitional wear, meaning, designs that carry a woman from season to season, from day to night. That was a significant part of the thought process for this collection. I wanted to think about footwear that is directional and also comfortable. I like my shoes to have a bit of personality,” she said.
