Newcomer shoe designer Camilla Skovgaard is tops on my watch-list of up and coming designers. What I like about her work is that each shoe is edgy, made of quality materials, and very unique. She takes boring, normal looking platforms, peep tose, or pumps and puts a ton of details (lace, skins, structure, etc) into her work. If you don’t believe me, take a look at the python sandals and striped peep-toe from Shopbop below.
I wasn’t surprised to learn from the official website that even though Skovgaard only launched her shoe collection in 2006 (prior to that she designed for the Skeikh’s wives and daughters), her shoe designs have already won her several accolades, the line is carried by top department stores like Saks, and celebrities have been seen with her designs.
This brings me to the latest shoe showdown. Vanessa Hudgens, Halle Berry, and Cindy Crawford were all seen wearing Camilla Skovgaard’s S8001 sandal, which is being sold in black for $549 at Endless or toffee at Shopbop for $385. It was difficult for me to decide which celebrity accessorized S8001 the best as all are so wonderfully dressed, including the amazingly youthful and healthy looking Cindy Crawford and yummy mommy Halle Berry, but my vote is going with Vanessa Hudgens today. Her choice of a sherbet colored dress with black belt really draw my attention to the shoes. Who do you think won Camilla Skovgaard’s S8001 shoe showdown?
