For Spring/Summer 2011-12, Beau Coops designer Carrie Cooper has taken influence from the dark and gothic to create the ‘Anyone Left is Lost’ collection. Cooper was inspired by the tale of a 15th century Hungarian woman, known only as Elizabeth – she was the most prolific serial killer of her day, reportedly slaughtering over 600 virgins. Elizabeth would reportedly bathe in her victims blood in an effort to keep herself young. Although the context was dark, what Cooper took from the tale was the opulance and gothic-feel that came with the medieval culture.
The unique footwear collection sees the incorporation of metal work, and the use of super soft ostrich skin on some designs.
