The theme of the line is the cult British Union Jack flag.  The shoes are bedazzled in John Richmond style, over the top, with mounds of glitter, rhinestones, studs and patches of different materials. Irreverent prints of lips on lips, mouths in red and black or blue alongside cartoon prints. Sequins is kept in monochrome fashion and adhered via a special techniques of silk-screen printing. Shimmering stars and multicolored skulls are stylized with glitter and rhinestones  and pointed studs.
