| C | For Clear

Clear counterparts of objects is a trend identified with novelty, the future and 80’s kitsch. Clear plastic casings were used to showcase the technical if not colorful mechanical insides of everyday objects such as phones and clocks. Wonder Woman flew an ‘invisible’ jet that made her more superhuman and added to her superhero abilities.

The SSWTR S/S 2012 Clear collection includes clear versions of classic Slow and Steady Wins the Race bestsellers: shoes and sunglasses, as well as new pieces. A clear trenchcoat, clear tasseled loafers, and bags along with stand alone accessories that are clear interpretations of the familiar such as thin hoop earrings and tuxedo bowties to punctuate the collection with an certain wit.
