And we have another luxury goods designer with a moderate priced line. They seem to be coming out of the wood works! Not that I’m complaining…it means really cool designs are more accessible to more people, but it’s also a sign that the global economy isn’t getting better. 10 Crosby Derek Lam, by Derek Lam, are very similar in style to his signature line, so much so, I wonder if it’s just the price point that’s different. Well, that and the label. Speaking of the label, it’s quite a mouthful, 10 Crosby Derek Lam. I think he could have dropped a syllable or two in the name, but I’ll take it if it means I can get his wonderful designs for hundreds of dollars less. Black leather with nude colored suede, these ankle boots have a zippered closure at the front vamp and an open toe. They also have a […]
The spring 2013 shoe collection are starting to be released, and all I can say is “wow”. There are tons of amazing designs from the designers we know and love, as well as some fresh talent. These incredible shoes are clearly from one of the best, Camilla Skovgaard, and she further emphasizes her signature saw platform by extending it up the back of the wedge. The dramatic profile is enhanced by the curving inward wedge, almost giving it a heelless look, however with the gripping rubber sole, these shoes will be much easier to walk in. Black leather with a zip closure at the inner ankle, these designer shoes will make a big statement in any season. They have a rubber saw platform that prevents slipping and an open toe. The heel measures 5.9 inches with a 1.59 inch platform. $921 Available here.
It’s the season of the wedge, and among the best is an offering from Jimmy Choo. His colorful striped sandal will perk up any outfit, especially an otherwise simple look like the solid shorts and button down pictured below. Or you can take a different route and pair with a flowy summer dress. For a multi colored sandal, these shoes are very versatile thanks to the strappy and simple upper, so you can step out in style all summer long. Dark camel patent leather platform wedges with a braided suede laced wrap tie around the ankle, these designer shoes have tassels and gold-toned stud hardware at the ends. They have a rainbow-multi stitched leather and suede wedge cover and a tonal suede footbed. There is a leather upper, in-sole and rubber detailed leather sole. The heel measures 5 inches with a 2 inch platform. $1,095 Jimmy Choo shoes at mytheresa.com. [facebook_ilike]
Pop art on your shoes? It’s sensory overload in the best possible way! These statement shoes pay homage to the late street artist Keith Haring by using his famous print. This particular black and white drawing was one of his more famous and has been used by other artists like Madonna and the band U2. Even if you don’t know who Keith Haring was, these are fabulous, head turning shoes. Black and white Keith Haring printed leather platform pumps, these designer shoes have an almond toe and a contrasting dark pink triangular insert at the heel. They have a leather insole and matching printed sole. They have a 5.5 inch heel with a 1.75 inch platform. $1,525 Available here.
I absolutely love nude pumps, they go with everything and they’re extremely flattering to any figure. They elongate our legs, making us look thinner, and who doesn’t love that? A nude pump is a nude pump, though, and it’s hard to put a unique twist on the design without eliminating their versatility. However, Giuseppe Zanotti made a fantastic, distinctive design with an element that sets it apart from your traditional nude pump. The curved wedge is a trademark of the Zanotti Spring 2012 collection, and is the distinctive element on this shoe. This wedge shoe is eyecatching from the side, but also from the back with the contrasting black seam. But if drawing attention to your rear view is daunting, rest assured the 4.25 pitch in your arches will make your butt look perkier. Nude colored leather slingback pumps with a peep toe and curved wedge heel, these designer shoes are statement shoes […]
Giuseppe Zanotti clearly has no fear of overkill, nope, not with these ultra-blinged out wedge pumps. As someone who loves anything and everything shiny, I wholeheartedly agree. But these shoes are more than just blinged out. With Aurora Borealis crystals that change color in shades of pink and light green when they hit the light, they’re literally like strobe lights on your feet. These shoes are so attention grabbing I don’t even know what you would pair them with? A LDB seems too conservative and obviously anything casual like denim is out. I’m thinking a short hemline, for sure, but tailored shorts or a dress? What would you wear with these? Silver leather covered with AB crystals on a curved wedge heel, these designer shoes have a thin ankle strap and an open toe. They have leather lining, a slightly padded in sole for comfort and rubber insets on the sole to […]
