I first questioned the PVC trend which really took off with Christian Louboutin’s ‘Bis un Bout’ pump from the Spring ’12 collection. Since then, more & more designers, such as Gianvito Rossi, Rupert Sanderson and Stuart Weitzman, continue to embrace this material. When even the most classic shoe maestros, Manolo Blahnik, designs his own PVC cap-toe shoe you know it’s not just a fad but a true footwear trend here to stay.
One of Daniele Michetti’s signature design details is adding a cape-like bow attached to the back of the heel. The Thali pump is from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection featuring a black leather covered cap-toe, clear PVC sides, black leather insole, oversized bow in snakeskin with leather trim, gold-tone pyramid studs and black leather covered stiletto heel. Half sizes are available at LuisaViaRoma only.
