The buzz: British shoe designer Dan Sullivan’s outlandish designs have graced the feet of Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani and Fergie, to name just a few. And now his signature brand, Irregular Choice, hits Causeway Bay’s Fashion Walk with a flagship store as impressive as its outlets in London and New York. If you’re sick of boring black pumps, these creations will help you breathe life into your shoe collection.
The goods: The floor-to-ceiling shelves are bursting with sequins, feathers and floral designs. Irregular Choice is known for its quirky style, and explores unexpected techniques, from covering a pair of Mary Janes in wool to perching a giant fake flower precariously onto an ankle strap. Harajuku-inspired platforms sit alongside ballet pumps cut out of the Union Jack (a UK best-seller). And, better yet, there’s no need to raid your bank account to take home a pair of these daring designer heels. With prices starting at $800, this place is shoe heaven for both the budget-conscious and hard-working gals with some sass. Clothing and accessories are also available.
The décor: Think black and white harlequin tiles, colorful mermaid-print floors and white quilted ceilings. Altogether, an unashamedly, unapologetic, over-the-top shopping experience.
