We hope you will get awesome inspirations from this lovely shoe brand, and hopefully one day choose to start your own online shoe brand as well!
Also, the whole Elska team is so humble despite all their amazing achievements!
Online fashion has always been a challenging industry, and we do respect Elska BOLDLY taking them a step forward towards what they passionately believe in, is just super inspiring to me. And yes, they walk their talk; what better ways to sell shoes are there by embodying all these positive life values? 🙂
So… we interviewed them; Read!
IG: Hello Elska! Thank you for your time!
El-ska: Not at all, thank you for having us!
IG: Tell us more about Elska. What’s Elska all about? 🙂
E: Elska represents Love & Unity in an Icelandic Term. We are an online shoe boutique, based in Singapore. Born of our founders’ love for luxe footwear and driven by a vision to unify style savants under one roof, we strive to deliver trendy accents that can elevate any outfit and constantly provide an exciting array of fashion items inspired by high street fashion.
Elska aims to be an International Online Fashion Destination for fearless fashionistas everywhere.
IG: Tell us more about the people in Elska?
E: We have a small and closely knit team working together hand in hand for Elska, each in-charge of different aspects of the company. We are closely bonded and working together has been a joy thus far.
We still have a pretty long way to go since Elska is still young and we always strive for the best. We all work towards the same goal and share the same ideas here at Elska, so weare excited to see what’s in store for us in the future. 🙂
IG: You really do have pretty and super comfortable shoes! I own two of them, and amazingly both are super high but I experience zero discomfort at all. Who does the choosing of the shoes and what criterias are the sourcing of shoes based on?
E: We believe every girl deserves to own a pair of good shoes. To feel comfortable in what you are wearing is really important and that’s what really makes a person too. That’s also what we look for when it comes to our designs. Quality, Design and comfort are very important factors which we emphasize on a lot.
IG: Your photoshoots are amazing!
E: Thank you for your kind words. 🙂 We’re glad you love them too. We get inspirations from almost everything. It can even come from simple conversations. We’re always excited to try something new, each time our design director has a new idea for a photoshoot, she will share it with us and we will brainstorm for more ideas to embellish the idea.
IG: Tell us more about your personal favorites.
E: We love every design. If we were to narrow down our favorites, it would definitely be the designs from our collection line, Wild & Wolf.
Bulletproof & Gunmetal are hot favourites for us.
Also, Hellbound, and Hush Hush!!
We love how these shoes can elevate an outfit. These designs are versatile on their own as well, suitable with different looks.
(IKIGUIDE Comments: Elska’s website and facebook page has this STYLEBOOK feature where they will usually recommend style co-ordinates with the shoes. It’s pretty cool! )
IG: What do you recommend every lady to look out for when choosing a pair of shoes?
E: The most important factor when looking for a pair of shoes is the fit of the shoes. The fit is very important, since you will be spending most of your time walking in that pair of shoes. We understand that this is the main concern of most when it comes to buying shoes therefore Elska at your Door is a special service & idea that we have came up with to address this shoe fitting concern.
IG: Your accessories are so edgy! Can you give us one example on how to pair El-ska accessories with shoes? 🙂
E: Thank you. We are really grateful for the overwhelming support and love we got when we first debuted our Accessories launch. Our top pick would be our One-of a Kind Clear Clutch, which is under our Handmade section.
This clear clutch has been specially handmade in house in our design studio specially for our fans. Pick this clear clutch up with a pair of shades, we’d say Seeker Shades, accessorize with some arm candies like our Glam Baroque Bangles and Rustic Angled Ring, teaming these with a Wild & Wolf pick, Gunmetal for a super versatile sharp and edgy look. 🙂
IG: Wow! Thank you for your time today!
E: No problem! Thank you for having us! 🙂
I really love their positivity.
All Elska shoes, by the way, come in really pretty and awesome boxes. 😉
