Victoria Beckham’s show was full of clothes that look like Posh herself could show up wearing them somewhere, which I suppose is the mark of a successful celebrity designer. Her clothes are exactly what you’d buy if you wanted to dress like La Beckham… and weighed approximately 90 pounds.
I’m not hugely blown away by the clothes (though they’re relatively wearable–I’d take that dress on the left pretty quick), but I LOVE her massive use of spats!
The majority of her outfits were accompanied by this often overlooked shoe accessory. There were over-the-knee spats and snakeskin spats and zip-back spats and more. Here are a few shots.
Now if only spats could show up in stores come Spring 2012. I’ll keep my fingers (or, I guess, more properly, my toes) crossed for it.
Every year Footwear News presents their Achievement awards. I was fairly interested in who was recognized because a lot has happened this year in the footwear industry. Here are some of the recipients awarded on November 29th.
The Person of the Year was Christian Louboutin. In his interviews he comes off as a genuinely great guy.
It is amazing to think that a small but loyal group knew his shoes before 2004. When he opened a shop at 59 Horatio Street. It exposed him to a younger hip group who couldn’t get enough of his shoes. Now red soles show up on every red carpet. In 2010 he opened 11 shops and started his online boutique. Growth in 2010. Amazing.
Victoria Beckham and Brian Atwood collaborated to produce a classic Brian Atwood Maniac pump and an ankle strap pump in a rose-gold color which was worn by all the models on Victoria Beckham’s spring/summer 2010 runway.
Of the color, Victoria Beckham said “I got this new Rolex and I really love the color of (more…)

With the three major fall 2010 fashion events, New York, Milan and Paris, concluding, there were a few shoe trends that recurred in several collections. This is what we saw. Mad Men curves are in. Fur is in. Many of the big name fashion houses went with classic investment pieces that were timeless looking. Several of the lesser known houses had some beautiful and interesting pieces. Let’s look at some shoes – that’s why we are all here.
Pointy toe shoes are returning, so dust off your Guess “Carrie” shoes because we will be seeing more pointy toes in the future.
Valentino. There was a flat and a kitten heel also presented in this collection.
While stilettoes were seen, typically if the heel was high - especially boots -then it was a chunky heel. I love the stability chunky heels offer. Can you imagine tottering around in the above Vuitton shoes if the heel was pencil thin?
Erdem – love the print on these boots.
Not many wedges were seen, so I am guessing we will be seeing those phased out over the next couple of years.
Bottega Veneta featured this wedge on all the shoes.
Dries Van Noten. I LOVE this half wedge.
With the retro girly-fication of the styles no tough girl platforms were necessary.
Lanvin (Arguably the best line of the season.)
But lots of platforms were presented.
Christian Louboutin for Phillip Lim
Brian Atwood for Victoria Beckham.
There must have been 10 different colors of this shoe because Mrs. Beckham likes to match her shoes to her dress. These shoes are nice but nothing to hyper-ventilate over. Her dresses were nice, wearable, and pretty.
Over the knee boots will be around for a while. We saw over the knee boots in several presentations. Since this is the fall season, we should not be surprised.
Burberry Prorsum presented some of the season’s favorite boots.
Statement shoes were everywhere.
If you are a chiropractor, you NEED these shoes.
Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte
Chanel. Notice the ice heel.
Chanel’s show, in my opinion was one of the goofiest ideas I think I have ever seen. Uncle Karl shipped a glacier from Sweden to Paris, had it sculpted it for the runway, put it on a swimming pool type platform, then the models walked through about an inch of melting glacier water. He presented some beautiful suits, IF you could see past the heinous fake fur that accompanied these outfits. Global warming, glaciers melting, save the furry animals was the message of this show. Here’s the thing. 1) Lagerfield used more fur in Fendi than virtually any other collection, so why use cheap looking fake fur with Chanel. 2) The carbon footprint of this show was massive and the power it took to present this show could have powered a small country. (Here is where I usually go off on my global-warming-leadership-hypocrasy tirade, but I won’t because you came here to see shoes.)
OK, I rarely look at purses, but I WANT THIS PURSE.
Forgive me for this long post, but there were so many beautiful shoes, and even more beautiful outfits. I wanted to show them all to you but that isn’t possible.
