For some reason, I’m rubbish on roller skates but can blade perfectly fine. So I’m thinking the Nokia Skate Almighty events that are going on in London, Birmingham and Manchester aren’t really for me but I’m sort of loving these campaign images though and I’m tempted to trek it to the London outdoor rink just to see whether people got inspired by Alice Dellal and bothered to dress up for the roller disco occasion. The shots feature Alice Dellal climbing over Big Ben, Tower Bridge etc and more importantly, the skates she is wearing are part of a set of five roller skate designs that Preen have done especially for the event. Apparently the skates are available to buy from the Preen shop at ¬£120 a pop. I’m not at all tempted seeing as they’d serve no purpose other than sitting pretty in the corner of my room making me look like I’m some sort of cool hardcore roller skater when clearly I’m not. Interesting that Preen have participated though and it does give ideas about creating similar spats (which is what they have done to pop over the skates…) for shoes as opposed to skates.
