For the Christian Dior Fall 2010 Couture show, creative director John Galliano created a virtual garden on the runway. For the floral motif, models were transformed into pansies, daffodils, and other brilliantly colored flowers.
The shoes also took on an organic feel with heels made to look like intertwined stems and pastel-colored strappy sandals which looked like they would bloom at a moment’s notice. What are you thoughts on these shoes? Would Mother Nature have approved? (more…)
I was originally going to write about the Dsquared2 fall 2010 shoe pre-orders in a single post. But, I soon realized that trying to squeeze everything into one article would do a disservice to this year’s two main style silhouettes.
While both yesterday’s spine-heeled shoes and todays finger-bone stilettos are similar in theme, they each deserve their own moment in the spotlight.
Yesterday’s offerings were solid, heavy styles that exude an intriguing combination of power and goth style.
Today’s finger-bone shoes are a more elegant interpretation of the skeletal theme. Slender’ metallic-stiletto heels - in your choice of a toned-down, silver-heeled, ankle bootie or and evening sandal bedecked with blood-red rhinestones and sparkly gold heel.
Hell yes! But, I am an avowed lover of statement shoes. When it comes to the more dream-shoe price ranges, I want, I crave, I need drama.
These shoes deliver.
And yes, I’ll admit that I’m biased. Halloween has been my favorite holiday since forever.
We (very briefly) showed you these Dsquared spinal cord shoes wayyy back in March. Those of you who were intrigued by that visual snippet will be glad to know that not only have these Dsquared2 fall 2010 runway spine-shoes gone into production, but that they are available for pre-order now at Luisaviaroma for arrival no later than September 30, 2010. Styles currently available include a bandage sandal; a peep-toe, ankle-strap pump; a closed-toe ankle boot; and a taller-than-me wowzer pair of sky-high, thigh-high boots.
Prices range from $1275 – 1650.
*Note to Halloween lovers: ‘Arrival by September 30th’ means that these should be received in plenty of time for those wanting to wear the perfect Halloween statement shoe on October 31st. From the major buzz I have seen since these showed up recently for pre-sale - if you wait until fall to purchase these, you run a true risk that they’ll be long gone.
Have you seen, read, or heard about Mihai Albu’s architectural shoes? The styles are, for the most part, imaginative, extreme, crazy, wild, wearable-art pieces.
In other words: Statement Shoes.
Via the Mihai Albu website:
Okay. I know this first shoe isn’t really all that over-the-top or statement-y. But it is available for purchase online, so I thought I’d include it anyway. For the real show-stoppers, I thought I’d leave them as a surprise after the break.
Are you ready?
I know I did a Paris Week recap, but I wanted to show you Hermes. It is interesting that Jean Paul Gaultier can feature some of the most bizarre shoes and clothing for his own line, but his Hermes collection was completely wearable.
It had a 60′s Avengers look complete with furled umbrella, bowler hats and lots of leather. Love it.
I am a natural redhead who looks great in brown, tangerine and rust. When I saw this outfit I started making a mental list of how I could re-create this look for myself. It is smashing.
Here are the shoes Gaultier put with these outfits.
I saved the best for last. How gorgeous are these boots. I would wear these every day if I owned them.
