80/20

  • Meet Ce Ce Chin of 80/20

    When we launched Ashbury Skies, we searched the market for shoe lines that we thought would resonate with our indie shoe community. When I stumbled upon 80/20 at the Las Vegas shoe show, I knew our brands would have good chemistry. Ce Ce has an edgy, indie feel in her designs. She works magic with hidden platforms. The pitches and angles of her wedges scream attitude but at the same time, they are the shoes you turn to when you need to walk all day.

    Thanks Ce Ce for agreeing to answer a few questions for us!

     

    My collection is inspired by:

    New York City living.  Since we don’t drive cars here, I see the shoes as our chosen mode of transportation.  What shoe is going to take me from here to there?

     

    When I design, the girl I have in mind is:

    Zoey Deschanel in The New Girl

     

    In life I am most inspired by:

    Those who follow their passions and life beyond reason.

     

    At the moment, I am obsessed with:

    Angora sweaters, I am dying for this one from Siwy

    The best advice I have ever got is:

    Live with Your Heart, Believe in yourself

     

    I can’t live without:

    Swimming in the Ocean- I’m planning a trip to LA next weekend and jumping into the Pacific is a priority.  I need a baptism like this at least every couple months.

     

    Fav on my play list right now is:

    The new Feist!

     

    If I could go back in time and bring back one trend it would be:

    Leotards and wrap around skirts- very 70s MILF fashion.

     

    On Friday nights I:

    Love winding down with a yoga class and then having a lovely dinner with friends.

     

    Redbull or Coffee person?

    Americano Coffee in the am with Half and Half- yum….

    If you couldn’t design shoes and you could have any other job, what would it be?

    The Kip, by 80/20

  • Neon shoes

    Jill Saunders SS11'Kip' Bootie by 8020

    Jil Sander SS11

    I have to say, I LOVE neon! It is fresh, new and frankly no one has this in their closet from last year. Wearing it head to toe is tricky, but the Kip by 80%20 embraces this trend in a very wearable way.  Wrapping the base of the wedge with neon was a stroke of genius by Ce Ce Chin founder and designer of 80%20. Our site is live and kicking so don’t be afraid to drop these puppies into your cart and support indie shoe designers.
