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:
