ICON SBI: Bringing Back the 70s Vintage Style
Posted on January 21 2019
The 2018 FW rendition of the iconic ICON - STEINBACK INLAY (SBI) series, is inspired by the creative charm of Art Deco, and takes on a distinctly french characteristic. The collection's featuring of bold blue and burgundy tones, seeks to compliment the featured gold metal plated, french inspired tongue, which exudes a 70’s vintage retro style. This gives off a feeling of classic high-end boutique, in combination with trendy urban lifestyle.
The latest series is made of quality Aniline Leather, and retains Royal Elastics' classic ICON body design and signature elasticized closure system. This enables ultimate quality and comfort to be achieved simultaneously.
Another key feature of this series, is its false two-piece costume design, styled heel tab, which has been creatively positioned in a way that reflects the unique charm of urban aesthetics. The whitecap gray bodied version (pictured above), takes advantage of this double layered surface. to inject a splash of color, to an otherwise neutral palate. The inner layer is painted with a burgundy red and the outer, in Moroccan blue.
The burgundy red bodied version (pictured above), features a white surface for both layers, to create the opposite effect, of naturalizing the bright red toned body, thus creating a well balanced and aesthetically pleasing end product, which exudes effortless class and sophistication.
