SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana are known for having delicate & intricate designs, of which the details become the most important parts.  These embellished sandals, complete with jewel-tone beads, yellow bananas, and forest green pompoms clearly represent their new jungle theme through each of the detailed elements, while the raffia-style heel and clasp adds a natural final touch.  They also have a similar pair in red and black.  Match them with a wicker bag, like this one by D&G here, and with a flowy, white sundress for the perfect summer look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dolce & Gabbana

I have to hand it to Dolce & Gabbana for their unbelievable detailed shoes, always on trend with the theme for their season’s collection.  Who could forget their wood & leather sandals or their African-inspired wedges?  And, of course, there’s no beating Italian shoes.  

Check out these Sicilian folklore pumps.  Their elegant and classic design brings out the amazing piece of art covering the shoe.  Wear these shoes with a white or cream pantsuit for work, or with a feminine A-line dress for play.

Funny side note on Dolce & Gabbana: When my wonderful parents came to visit me in New York, we walked down Madison Avenue.  As we were walking past the Dolce & Gabbana store, my dad said, “I know Dolce means ‘candy’ or ‘sweet’ in Spanish, so what does ‘Gabbana’ mean?”  So adorable.

Dolce & Gabbana had an African-culture themed show for Spring/Summer 2013, and even got into some troubles due to some calling the show racist (everyone loves a controversy).  I happen to think their collection was beautifully executed, and incorporated the beautiful details that paid homage to the various cultures around the world.  These shoes are the perfect example of this, with the look of hand-painted details, woven straps, and an Asian-inspired fan as the wedge.dolce and gabbana wedges
