SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Vetements

Vetements, the ‘creative collective’ headed up by Demna Gvasalia, has applied its classic-meets-contemporary aesthetic to footwear. Think modern shapes and coloured details.

These baby blue boots are one of the standout pieces from Vetement’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.  They are created from a stretchy textile to look like a pair of socks, highlighting the athleisure trend that is everywhere this season.  The yellow and silver metal heel provides a cheeky contrast.  Wear them with a boxy dress or cropped silk pants to show off the design. VETEMENTS Sock ankle boots

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Givenchy

Oh, leather & lace, you never get old, do you?  Check out these perforated white leather mules by Givenchy.  With a 4 inch heel, these beauties would look amazing styled with a pair of oversized culottes or a flowing, below-the-knee A-line skirt.  Personally, I love the white, as it blends perfectly with the leather and lace combo, but the boot equivalent is available in black here, if that’s more your style.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Gucci

I recently stumbled across these gold Gucci “Marmont” pumps, and ever since, have been unable to stop imagining how perfectly they would look with an amazing pair of dress pants or a midi skirt…  Even peeking out of a pair of flared blue jeans for a put-together weekend look.

The chunky heel is sensible enough to walk around in all day without, well, dying, and the elegance of the gold signature Gucci logo is balanced out by the preppy fringe on the toe, making this a perfect choice for both the office, after-work cocktails, and pretty much everything in-between.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Aquazzura X Poppy Delevingne

Anytime great fashion designers collaborate with coveted style icons, the end result is amazing across the board.  This season, Aquazzura and Poppy Delevingne brought their fashion forces together to create a beautiful collection of sandals and boots inspired by the bohemian style of her wedding in Morocco.

One of my favorites from the collection are these Midnight sandals, created with nude suede and metallic leather.  They are embedded with astrological symbols and turquoise stones, which look incredible contrasted against the shimmery gold.

Style ’em with a pair of oversized silk shorts à la Poppy (do a Pinterest search for Poppy Delevingne’s style if you’re confused), or with a flowing midi skirt to amplify the free-spirited feel of these sandals.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Jimmy Choo x Moon Boot

Moon Boots were a little before my time.  So, maybe that’s why I don’t fully “get” these trendy boots, or perhaps they just need time to grow on me.  Then again, anything Jimmy Choo does I can pretty much get behind, and this collab with Moon Boots is no exception.  There is something slightly glamorous about them, as though reserved solely for beautiful, upscale winter resort destinations, such as Aspen, St. Moritz, or Banff.

Pair ’em with a cozy pair of equally fancy leggings and a matching silver coat, or with skinny jeans to balance out the look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Aleksander Siradekian

Aleksander Siradekian: The man, himself.

 

Aleksander Siradekian is a new shoe designer that’s managed to keep a low profile until now.  The brand’s signature heel is recognizable by a unicorn-like flowing fringe off the back of the heel.  Every year, the Russian designer’s beautiful, feminine heels are shown at Paris Fashion Week.  I recently stumbled across these red and black houndstooth stilettos, and am absolutely smitten.  Wear these to a holiday party with a LBD or with an A-line mini-skirt and tights.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Camilla Elphick

Funky statement heels are one of my favorite things in the whole wide world.  These Camilla Elphick PEZ heels are no exception.  Camilla, who designs feminine, yet playful shoes, has worked with all of the greats, from Nicholas Kirkwood, Sophia Webster, Donna Karan, Paul Andrew to Charlotte Olympia, although she’s only been around for 2 seasons.  The PEZ shoe she designed for her graduate shoe collection prompted her to launch her eponymous label in Spring/Summer 2015.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Chiara Ferragni

Chiara Ferragni (the blogger behind The Blonde Salad) is basically at Anna Dello Russo- street style status these days, and her shoes are undoubtedly equally fabulous.

Check out these sparkly gold loafers from her collection for ShoeScribe.  On one shoe, it says “I FEEL” and on the other, removable emoji’s can be applied depending on your mood.  Seriously, these are too darn cute for words.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Paul Andrew

All of this buzz about Paul Andrew‘s “comfortable” shoes has made me seriously eager to try out his stilettos, while visions of days where I walk miles and miles in heels, not thinking twice, run through my head…Sigh. 

Okay, okay, they’re probably not that magical, but I guarantee I’ve worn worse.  But, hey, since we’re on the subject, check out these bad boys from the man himself.  The classic closed-toe shape of these heels balance out the quirkiness of the decorative design.  Inspired by New York City, they are emblemed with key words that come to mind when thinking about city life, such as “Subway“, “Brooklyn“, “Taxi“, “Run“, and, my favorite, “Hustle”.

Paul Andrew, $795

Pair these heels with cropped denim trousers (bonus points if you fray the hems) and a crisp, white blouse for an urban chic look.
