We've been keeping our eye on Marisa Spinella and Arielle Vavasseur, the duo behind L.A. shoe label Penelope and Coco, since late last year, when they were in full on marketing mode of their debut, boot-heavy Fall 2011 collection.
We knew immediately that the girls' star would rise fast: The premier collection of boots for AW10 was perfectly rugged and feminine, not to mention designed and handmade in L.A. For the Spring 2011 season, the ladies got downright creative, turning their SS11 lookbook into a catchy, French pop-inspired video chock full of the pair's handsome oxford collection.
Back then, Marisa alluded to the upcoming Fall 2011 collection: "For our next collection we're working on height — some heels, extreme wedges..." That day has arrived. Penelope and Coco's Fall 2011 collection,"The Collectibles," is chock full of towering heights, bright pops of blue, prints, and super-glam wedges, has been perfectly packaged into a spectacular Fall fashion film. You can shop the shoes too — all are available now for pre-order on the local label's site, with free shipping on all orders placed before July 1 with the code PREFALL.
Locally, you can shop the current collection at Diavolina.
