These pumps reflect the theme from the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2011 RTW collection of mother Earth, mostly evident in imagery of flowers and foliage. Taught be her predecessor, Sarah Burton inserts the theme in her pieces in a beautiful yet unexpected way. The flower at the heel of these pumps appear to grow out of the stem/stiletto heel invoking the sense that these shoes are wearable art, something Sarah has been doing sense she took over last year. Although the ‘wearable art’ accessories are more costly than the more traditional pieces, they are immensly popular and sell out every season.
These designer shoes are black silk/cotton blend with an open toe and flower detail at the heel. They have leather lining, sole and in-sole. The heel measures 5 inches with a 1.25 inch platform. Alexander McQueen shoes are made in Italy. $1,675 Available here.
