Karen Robertson, the product designer behind nature- inspired home accessories, Karen Robertson Collection, has a new company. Known for her use of seashells, sea fans, coral and other marine life on mirrors, boxes and obelisks, has focused her eye on fashion. Her new venture, Shoe Clips, gives your shoes many lives. Decorative clip- ons, like the Mink, shown above, give a pair of basic black flats that something extra. They are just like the flats Lanvin did a few seasons back. The mink detail is made from old recycled mink coats, so not to worry, it is repurposed fashion. They won't keep you warm, but they are charming!
