Miss Crabb and Mi Piaci's new collaboration straight out of Heaven

They are the kind of off-kilter, haute-camp heels you could imagine Dolly Parton or Lil’ Kim strutting around in — a peep-toe mule called Heaven. And, you’d expect nothing less from a designer as irreverent as Kristine Crabb.

The shoe, created in collaboration with Mi Piaci (whose past designer partnerships include Hailwood), made its debut in patent red and pink as part of a capsule collection at the Miss Crabb’s raucous off-site show during New Zealand Fashion Week last year. This week, a second instalment of the popular, sell-out heel is available in three new colours: earthy terracotta pink, zesty lemon and lilac.

The update is supported by a new campaign photographed by Lula Cucchiara and styled by expat New York-based stylist Thistle Brown, who’s lent his creative eye to the likes of cult label Maryam Nassir Zadeh and magazines Marfa Journal and Wonderland.

“Working with Thistle and Lula captured the feeling of the collaboration and the sense of luxury and fun times shared by both Miss Crabb and Mi Piaci,” explains Kristine about the partnership.
