Over the past couple of seasons, you may have noticed the eagle motif that has become intrinsic to the Kurt Geiger DNA. The eye-catching detail is inspired by a jewel-encrusted vintage eagle ring belonging to our Creative Director, Rebecca Farrar-Hockley. Symbolising courage, strength and wisdom, the Kurt Geiger eagle made its debut adorning our classic Kensington handbags, before (quite literally) spreading its wings to become the focal point of must-have footwear and Kurt Geiger’s debut jewellery collection.
Our first foray into the world of jewellery has resulted in a covetable selection of gold-tone and pearl embellished pieces. The eagle head takes centre stage as the focal point of a black velvet choker and statement cocktail rings. The collection is glamorous, edgy and super wearable, with the ladylike earrings and plainer rings being great everyday pieces (there’s also a gunmetal ring for those who prefer silver to gold). Dressier pieces include the aforementioned (and rather sexy) choker and on-trend pearl detail ring – perfect for finishing off all your party looks this winter. Costume jewellery was a big hit on the AW17 runways, with brands like Gucci presenting chunky metal and pearl pieces to offset everything from jewel tone dresses to athleisure-inspired designs.
On the shoe front, there are two key styles that showcase the KG eagle. Kurt Geiger London’s 'Soar' comes in classic black or an opulent floral print, and the eagle adorned platform style makes for on-point party feet fodder. Pair with black leather trousers and an oversized blazer for a modern spin on eighties glam or show off pins by teaming them with your favourite LBD. The eagle head can also be found adding something extra special to Dante, a classic black ankle boot (coming soon!). Ideal for perfecting off-duty cool with denim and a chunky knit.
Of course, the eagle’s spiritual home is front and centre on our best-selling Kurt Geiger London Kensington bags. For autumn/winter, not only can the motif be found on XXL versions of the iconic arm candy, you’ll also find it on our on-trend mini bags. To let the eagle take centre stage, team your bags with timeless heels – Carvela Kurt Geiger’s 'Alison' and 'Aruba' courts and 'Livia' and 'Lynora' loafers are the perfect pared back additions. See supermodel Lily Donaldson clutching the fuzzy pink micro number in this season’s campaign for inspo and look out for more eagle-adorned arm-candy landing later in the season.
