When meeting a new person, it is common social practice to judge them by their actions, body language and overall deportment. Director/dancer/choreographer Celia Rowlson-Hall knows better: you should always judge them on their shoes.
In her newest offering after the wordless short film dance spectacular, Rowlson-Hall has made the film Goody! Two Shoes as an ode to the S/S 2012 footwear collection from Keller. Designed by Brooklyn-based Kelly Clark, Keller is a boutique fashion house creating clothing and footwear with a relaxed, subtle aesthetic. The onus is on the wearer to make it her own, and rather than be pushed around by short-lived trends and mass-produced garments.
If there was an award for Most Inventive Footwear Film, this would win it hands down. It celebrates one girl’s quest (well, one King Kong/Broadway performer/jungle animal’s quest) for the most lust-filled shoes she’s ever seen. Once again, Rowlson-Hall’s choreography is playful and clever. If only every fashion house didn’t take themselves so seriously and could have as much fun as this.
