You may have heard about the new designer shoe floor at Barney’s–men’s and women’s designer shoes on the same floor for the first time in Madison Avenue history! Or something like that. Barney’s has been heavily promoting this new shoe floor with a lovely marketing campaign called “Perfect Pairs,” complete with a “Perfect Pairs: Love Letters” campaign on the Barney’s blog and proceeds from pricey shoe sales going to the Human Rights Campaign and its Americans for Marriage Equality Program. It’s actually quite adorable. And admirable.
What’s also adorable–but possibly not as admirable–is Barneys’ new Perfect Pairs logo, shown above. Linear illustration, two shoes back to back, a classic man’s shoe, a classic woman’s pump, set directly above a line of text, the choice of words.
And what’s this, above? This is the at least two-year-old logo of The Perfect Pairing–a street style Tumblr created by a New Yorker with an eye for fabulous footwear. Linear illustration, two shoes back to back, a classic man’s shoe, a classic woman’s pump, set directly above a line of text, the choice of words. Maybe it’s pure coincidence?
