SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Donald Robertson x Brian Atwood

What happens when two of your favorite people come together to create your favorite accessory?  A magical, epic trifecta of #shoepornthursday, of course!  Enter Donald ‘Drawbertson’ Robertson, creative director of Estée Lauder & who was also dubbed the “Andy Warhol of Instagram“.  Just take a look (if you have been hiding under a rock and haven’t yet) at his whimsical illustrations on Instragram (@DonaldDrawbertson)  and try not to smile (spoiler alert: it won’t work).  So naturally, when I noticed some of his art on the one and only Brian Atwood‘s heels, I got super giddy (’cause, duh).

Check these bad boys, known as “Gitte Lips“, out for yourself, available in three different styles.

First, the platform sandal style, which would look fabulous paired with wide-legged dark denim jeans and a tucked in white blouse.

Or, there’s the cage-inspired sandal design:

And finally, the very classic, closed-toe, high-enough-but-not-overtly-high, “I have an ankle-strap I’m so freaking adorable” pump:

Personally, I love the pump pictured first (which may or may not be because of a recent unhealthy chunky heel obsession).  What do you think of the collab?  Are you a Donald Robertson obsessee, like me?
