Haven’t you heard? Seven is the spot to shop and be seen shopping at in New York. Like one of my favorite boutiques in Williamsburg, Oak, Seven is full of experimental, interesting pieces hand selected by the buyer from a world of strange indie designers.
Personally, I’m not one for graphic tees as the largest statement of your outfit, and shredded pieces that look like they came out of a fabric dumpster usually bore me, but I think for fashionable guys this place is a goldmine. Also, designers are doing amazing things with cotton and fleece these days.
But back to the shoes. Seven is your go-to spot for hip Nicholas Kirkwood shoes. Call ahead to see if they have the ones you want in stock.
Yes, they have the suede python slingback of celebrity fame, for $995.
My favorite is the satin pearl platform slingback for $1050.
Also super love on-able, though fairly unaffordable: the suede python ankleboot for $1395.
Hello stunning! The starburst suede ankleboot for $1650.
Last night in New York was that always-delightful high point of every fashionista’s calendar o’ chic: the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. This year’s theme (in conjunction with the Costume Institute’s major annual exhibition of the same title)? The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion.
While last year’s Superhero show only produced a few interesting footwear choices, this year, there were beautiful shoes galore!
This may well be the year of Nicholas Kirkwood. It certainly was on the carpet last night. In my opinion, the most interesting designs were his, and they were on the feet of some of the top models in the industry.
Here’s Jessica Stam in the S9051B.
And here’s Karolina Kurkova so considerately displaying the S9049A for us.
Check out the official site for stockists near you and a peek at the GORGEOUS, uber-glam styles for the spring/summer 09 line.
While Kirkwood was my favorite on the carpet, there were plenty more style statements made through shoes.
Louboutins were everywhere… of course!
I’m not sure I’m feeling the giant bow look (seen here on Ivanka Trump with her Bow T pumps, which you can find at Joseph here), but I’ll tell you I do love her dress.
The so-called hourglass heels from Louis Vuitton that Twinkletoes wrote about so amusingly during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year were EVERYWHERE last night! And I do mean everywhere.
Madonna wore a crazed thigh-high boot version.
Posh went with the ankle straps.
And Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester took the cake for Walking Disaster in the covered ankle bow-tie version. I hasten to add that the shoes are BY FAR the best part of this outfit, and that Walking Disaster status is earned by that horrible piece of—I hate to even call it fashion—fabric she has covered herself in that is an awful combination of rejected upholstery, spangles, and some American Apparel red lamé leggings. XOXO? I think not.
But we can’t end on such a hideous note, can we? No no. I wouldn’t do that to you.
So instead, I will end with a beautiful shoe that I totally covet. It’s Roger Vivier’s origami-inspired Kyte in a beautiful ivory/gold combination that matches Marisa’s dress perfectly. Mwah!
All in all, a beautiful batch of shoes full of interesting heels and toes and uppers and materials. It’s going to be a fun season, folks. Can’t wait for it to unroll.

It’s no mystery that metallics mysteriously come into fashion every Spring. Each year, the fashion magazine report, with breathless admiration, how “New!” and “Exciting!” this ground-breaking trend is. Whatever people; we’re on to you. We knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make metallics any less fun. In the spirit of fun Spring trends, here are some of the fancier metallic footwear that is (or will soon be) available.
Marc Jacob Heart Heel, approx $638 (converted from British Pounds).
A more practical version is the Marc Jacobs Heart Ballerina, approx $475 (converted from Euros)
Nicholas Kirkwood Black and Gold Sandals, approx $787 (converted from GBP)
Remember these from Phillip Lim’s Spring collaboration with Christian Louboutin (we wrote about it!)? Well now you can get your own pair. Britney Spears already got hers (in the red, heeled version). She’s got them on in her video for “If You Seek Amy.” The people dressing her are really working hard these days. Check out the Christian Louboutin “Adona” Sandal, $1265 at Saks.
CL also shows us what would happen if a disco ball was reimagined as a shoe. The Very Galaxy Platform Pump is available at Saks for $1295.
Brian Atwood gives us a cool Gold Wedge Sandal ($1870, but only available on request).
Prada has a Christmas wrapping type lace up sandal.
Pierre Hardy gives us geometric sandals in both silver and gold. Available on www.pierrehardy.com.
And let’s not forget the shoes we saw on the runway at NY Fashion week 2009. These suckers won’t be available for a good long while and are oficial part of “Fall,” but designers this season seemed a bit confused about what is constitutes Spring and Fall, so bring them on.
I remember when I saw this armored gold bootie at the Karen Walker shoe, I nearly fell out of my seat. It’s even more gorgeous in person than it is in photos.
And Costello Tagliapietra’s models rocked the runway in these and these:
Johnathan Saunders shone when he showed these:
Before we dive into London fashion week, I thought it might be fun to have a look at some of the more interesting shoes seen on NY Fashion Week Spring 2009. And since the Emmys is this weekend, I thought it might be fun to dish out some shoe awards while I was at it.
Quite possibly, this is the Most Accessoried Accessory seen on the runways. Following in the footsteps of shoe designers Blahnik and Louboutin (remember these fierce shoes?) who have produced shoes for Rodarte, Nicholas Kirkwood designed these very decked out shoes. They are so ostentatious, can you imagine the stares you’d get if you wore these on a night out with the gals? I can also imagine them appearing in a rap video shortly.
Apparently, though, Nicholas Kirkwood’s heels for Rodarte aren’t very walkable. They have have gained notoriety for receiving the Most Likely to Fall in these Shoes, because well, it actually happened (near minute 7:00). The model, Abbey Lee, seems to have escaped injury this time.
Most Ill-Fitting shoes goes to Matthew Willliamson. The pinky toe and the right middle toe are just clinging on to the platform for dear life.
Finally, my Favorite Shoe from NY were by Marc Jacobs. Normally, I am not a fan of ankle straps, but these are too delicious and I want them in all the prints – weave, red glitter, silver, leather, etc. I’m a fan of the dainty teardrop-ish heel (hopefully they are easy to walk in though) and the tongue-like curvature at the heel.
