If I had a kiln – oh, and a lot more free time than parenting normally allows, this is the type of metalwork as art-to-wear that I would love to be able to eventually produce.

Yes, I realize that Pantone released this press release months ago. But, mid-winter didn’t really feel like the right time to find the best examples of shoes in their 2011 ‘color of the year’.
The color in question: Honeysuckle.
Which, for those of us less picky about our nomenclature is a bright, vibrant, retro-80′s-trending, PINK!
Okay, I’ve mentioned before that I am not tall. So, I’m short – perhaps on the tall side of short, but definitely shorter than most men or women I come across. Which is what it is – no big deal. I’ve actually found that since I look folks in the eye when I speak with them, that most of them (When asked; I’ve only tested this with people I’ve met more than once.) think that I’m taller than Iactually am and react with disbelief when they find out that my height is under 5′-3″.
I am intrigued by the Camilla Skovgaard London A9007 ankle boot with the wrap-around ankle detail.
At first glance, they reminded me of the Balenciaga 2006 harness boots that were so popular (thanks in large part to Mary Kate Olson) – which spawned the wildly popular Sam Edelman ‘Zoe’ – a silhouette that has become a staple for that shoe brand, including a recent, studded variation.
Robert Clergerie turns 76 today. Born in Paris in 1934, he started as a manager in the Charles Jourdan factory in the 1970s, then worked his way up to designer. His first women’s line debuted in 1981 with a pair of menswear oxfords. He later designed pumps with parallelogram heels that were copied enough that the shape was referred to as the Clergerie heel. He then introduced a steel high heel which is thought to be the pioneer of the spike heel. The factory is still in France and Mr. Clergerie is still in France.
Until working on this post, I had never really paid attention to Clergerie shoes. Now, I am quite intrigued with them. (more…)
