Rising star Ella Balinska has been tapped to appear in Kurt Geiger’s new campaign.
The British actress is currently gearing up to begin promoting the Elizabeth Banks-directed reboot of the Charlie’s Angels franchise, in which she appears alongside Naomi Scott and Kristen Stewart.
But before Ella heads on the publicity trail, she has been selected by bosses at the U.K. footwear brand to be the face of the Characterful Style imagery for the fall/winter 2019 collection.
“Characterful style means bringing out the you, your personality and your essence,” the 22-year-old said in a statement, before adding that the campaign marks a full circle moment in her career, as she was once an employee for the company at the Selfridges department store in London. “I used to work in Kurt Geiger, it makes this so close to home and it makes it a campaign I’m really proud to be the face of because I know this company back to front. So, to be able to share that with the world, it’s a lot.”
In the accompanying video and still images, Ella models the new leather Bax boots, the Shoreditch purse, which features 1,500 pin studs, and the pristine white Lunar sneakers.
For the new line, Kurt Geiger creative director Rebecca Farrar-Hockley has also introduced the Bax flat and the Shoreditch tote handbag.
Meanwhile, label executives have tapped Razorlight frontman Johnny Borrell to show off the men’s collection, including the leather Cade Chelsea boot and the Ross Boot.
Of wearing boots, he simply commented, “On stage, you just don’t want to slip over.”
Items in Kurt Geiger’s fall/winter 2019 collection are priced from $181 – $279 (£149 – £229).
