Fendi Shoes Fall 2011

OK. I totally get that designers need to change up their collections each season, so I can give Karl Lagerfeld a partial pass on this collection, but what about designing to flatter the female form? For the Fall 2011 RTW collection, Lagerfeld was inspired by the painter Dadaist: a buttoned-up-to-the-neck art teacher who was wild only with her art. Her style was strict but lived-in, and she wore Mary Janes with woolen tights bagged slightly at the knee. Translation: Dowdy, and thats what I think about the shoes in this collection.

The T-strap Mary Janes with the higher heel are decent, but I wouldn’t spend money on them. The chunky heel makes them schoolgirl-ish and awkward.  However, they are far better than the low, square heeled shoes that remind me of nurse Ratched.
