The shop is open again, Lisa is back from her holiday…
So everything is back to normal. Look at that new floor – it’s the old one!
I’ve no idea how the builders managed to make it so shiny.
Anyways, welcome back!
Some of you have probably noticed already, the shop is currently closed
for general refurbishment.
We hope to re-open again on Saturday 21st. If you have urgent requests,
you can still email us or call Lisa in the Conduit Street shop.
Next week we’ll have some Worlds End new arrivals ready for you.
It’s about time you meet Lisa in this blog.
Lisa is the heartbeat of 430 Kings Road and she’s the one who will help you with all special requests.
Whenever I go to the shop I’m overwhelmed by her looks and energy. You need to meet her yourself. Here she wears an Arabesque Dress.
The Rocking Horse Shoe was designed along with the collection “Mini Crini” in 1986.
This collection was inspired by the “Petrushka Ballet”, the clothes were supposed to create a childish and doll-like look. Vivienne wanted to design an elevated shoe, which at the same time is comfortable and easy to wear. That’s why it has the rounded front. “You rock along when you walk in them” (Vivienne).
For sure the form is connected to the “Rope Thong Sandal” which was designed 2 years earlier and was inspired by the traditional Japanese geisha shoe. Today we sell 6 versions of Rocking Horses:
Rocking Horse Ballerina – £375.00
