Chloe-Harper-Fall-2016-Leather-Lace-Up-Boot

Chloé Harper ankle boot | 3″ / 75mm heel | available at Barneys, Matches, Farfetch and Browns Fashion for $1125.00

The dark yet sassy Gothic Glam trend is coming back this Fall season. On the runways we are seeing lacquered sky-high chunky platforms, chokers, leather jackets paired with fishnets and negligee dresses/skirts. Harper gives us a punk-gothic vibe with smooth black leather, a lace-up ribbon ankle tie, inner side zipper and stacked block heel. If you’re feeling a sassy-yet-gloomy kind of way pair these boots with a signature leather jacket, fishnet tights and velvet choker.

Chloé tasseled suede sandal | 4.1″ / 100mm heel | available in black suede at Shoescribe and in beige suede at Net-A-Porter for $750.00

Fringe remains key for Spring 2016, and Chloé’s suede sandals are a chic way to work the look. These sandals embrace the label’s insouciant ’70s spirit with tassel trimmed cross-over wrap around front straps that are both flattering and supportive. With a comfortable covered 100mm stiletto heel you can pair these heels with casual denim or pretty floral dresses. Made in Italy, half sizes are available.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Anthony-Vaccarello

Anthony Vaccarello is a brand designed around the idea of a confident and sensual woman who knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. The line is characterized by microscopic minis, excessive leather, and lots of cleavage. For all of Vaccarello’s verve and sass, the shoes are fairly classic and definitely the apparel’s subtle counterpart. Black, cherry red, and shining silver – the double strap pointed-toe pumps will assuredly show off your legs and complement any mini-hemline you rock.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Dries-Van-Noten

If we were to describe the Fall 2014 line in a nutshell, it’d be Technicolor pirate meets Velvet Goldmine. From color blocked suede to luscious booties in metallic-laced snakeskin topped with a golden mirrored heel, just when you think that Dries Van Noten has reached the peak of gorgeous designs, he outdoes himself again. We’re in love with the ankle booties, but the t-strap thick heeled pump is also utterly jaw dropping. Who would have thought that silver-toned calf hair could look so futuristic and lux?

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Rochas

Rochas’ vibe in recent years has been ‘50s and ‘60s housewives with a sassy, outspoken twist – usually involving ornate embroidery and punchy colors. The heels (with straps or without, because variety is the spice of life) are incredibly embellished and not in a subtle kinda way. Literally dripping with bead and rhinestone embellishments, the pumps offer a not-so-classic-take on a traditional and practical silhouette. We love the way they’re styled with slightly conservative neo-conservative clothing, as it allows the bejeweled shoes to really shine.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Vionnet

It’s been a rocky road bringing the iconic brand Vionnet into the modern day, but designer Goga Ashkenazi has been tirelessly reinventing the bias cut to bring Vionnet back into the limelight. The result? Vibrant color combinations and stunning draping. However, things get a little more muddled where the footwear is concerned. While the calf hair booties are unique and the calf hair pump with geometric heel is phenomenally inventive, the furry multi-colored sandals are definitely too bizarre for everyday use.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Balmain

Oliver Rousteing’s latest Balmain offering is a blend of worldly streetstyle, voluptuous silhouettes, and Masai-inspired embroidery – without ever leaving that sensation of Parisian cool. It isn’t surprising that we’re seeing such bold footwear from Balmain; in recent memory, the brand has been devoted to making a high sartorial impact in the coolest way possible (Rihanna’s had a wonderful effect on the young Balmain designer in that way). Rousteing complemented the “safari chic” collection with olive, black, and gold intricately woven footwear that we’ll all be channeling come cooler weather. Those knotted leather sandal booties might actually be what our dreams are made of!

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Lanvin

Alber Elbaz’s Lanvin is all about making a woman feel like the most beautiful and the most enticing creature in the world, leading his line to be one of the most decadent season after season. Slipping on one of his designs transports you to a fantasy of Old Hollywood glamour with modern day power; this time around, the shoes did not escape that exquisite treatment. Thickly heeled, satin-covered, and exotically skinned (we spy with our little eyes alligator, snake, and stingray – oh my!), they’re over the top in a way that would make Marlene Dietrich keel over in ecstasy.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Isabel-Marant

The ankle booties that stole Isabel Marant’s show were typical Parisian cool. Strappy and fitted in neutral-to-military colors, just looking at them filled you with a sense of sass and empowerment. While we love the combination of olive green and grey, the show stoppers were the designs that were primarily designed in fur with leather cross straps binding everything together. They were sheer excess in a way that is right up the alley of Beyonce or Rihanna – in fact, we’re sure both the bombastic icons will be snapped wearing them.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Christian-Dior

Christian Dior, much like other Parisian designers, are having a ‘90s influence. No, we’re not talking about Spice Girls’ level platform heels – Raf’s ‘90s inspiration revolves around colorful sneakers and molded rubber. Where his sneaker interpretation deviates from the literal (we’re looking at you, Chanel), is that he still includes a pointed toe pump in the design. High-contrast and unique, these shoes will be editorial hits and Anna Dello Russo favorites.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Céline

If Céline’s line is any indication, flatforms are going to have a moment in fall. While we’re not completely sold on the clunky silhouette, the gorgeous use of patent leather and neutrally colored ombre fade make us warm up to the designs more than we thought possible. Besides, who doesn’t love comfort? A flat shoe on a platform provides the additional height without the ankle strain.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Chloé

As per usual, Chloé’s line of shoes are clean, sleek, modernist goodness wrapped in stunning suede, supple leather, and intriguing fur. We love the mixture of different textures on every design, if only because she takes simple ideas (black and navy, quilted leather) and elevates them to a plateau of high fashion. The complementary palette of eggplant, sage, navy, and cream make the designs stand out even more; the neutrality means that you will be able to wear these shoes practically anywhere, all winter long. When the heeled boots look this amazing, who could blame you?

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Givenchy

The shoes are simply sensational in their open-toed and strappy sandaled goodness. From the exquisite color palette (burnished reds and oranges, stark whites, hints of mint, and streaks of snakeskin) to the perfectly unique silhouette that is edgy without being bizarre, Givenchy’s shoes are firmly cemented as some of the most covetable heels of the season. If this is Tisci’s glamour, we can’t be more thankful for the lack of sweatshirts.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Stella-McCartney

We watch Stella McCartney’s shows for her neo-prep sensibilities, the kind that make you quirk your head to the side and think “wow, I never thought of styling a blazer like that.” Similarly daring, Stella’s shoes for this season are not for the faint of heart – the multi-tone flatforms are one part loafer and three parts gutsy. Ranging from neutral to star printed, they match her aesthetic of modernist with an attitude.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Elie-Saab

When Elie Saab presents his collections, we’re always expected stunning gowns and perfect, modern opulence. This time around, the footwear is strappy and dramatic, perfectly inter-weaving leather and suede. What has our heart pounding is the luscious color palette; the gorgeous purple perfectly balances the vibrant teal, further tied together with hints of black and beige. Swoon. If these shoes don’t scream sensual sophistication, we don’t know what heels do! We predict that these shoes will be mainstays on the red carpet and we can’t wait to see who rocks them.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Saint-Laurent

If there’s one thing that’s certain about Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent, it’s that the collections are made for partying. Miniskirts, sequins, and enough fur to make an Old Hollywood starlet blush, they practically drip with Los Angeles essence; they scream “I’m a cool girl.” Why would the shoes be any different? Coming in primarily three styles, the strappy Mary Janes, London-style ankle bootie, and the sleek knee-high boots are knock-your-socks-off fabulous. Sure, you could go for the black patent leather or sleek chestnut suede variety, but we can’t stop looking at the glitter infused, rhinestone studded, and striped variations. Silver leather knee-high boots that walked straight out of a 1960s science fiction movie? Uh, yesPlease and thank you.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Chanel

It wouldn’t be a Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel collection without a heaping helping of absurdity and Chanel’s supermarket chic collection is filled with just that. How absurd is absurd? Well, let’s just say we haven’t seen so many gym-ready Chanel shoes in…well, ever. That’s right: the Chanel shoes of the season are exclusively sneakers, taking a cue from the last haute couture collection where kneepads and fannypacks were standard fare. The collection was rife with multi-tweed sneakers that came in ankle and knee-high variety, perfect for those who like their style to have a dose of novelty.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Valentino

It’s no surprise that Valentino’s FW14 footwear offerings are sensational – their shoes have been ruling the streetstyle blogs for a few seasons now. This collection, they’ve embraced Italian Pop art by use of rich red hues, mod shapes, moody blues, and a stunning mosaic print. Alternating the styles between knee-high boots, a stellar ankle bootie, and a lovely strappy pump, we predict that these shoes will be everywhere come September.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Alexander-McQueen

This is the first collection from Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen that we’re seeing large undertones of dark and gothic romanticism that truly feel like they were taken out of Alexander McQueen’s diary. Keeping with the brand’s London roots (nevermind that it shows in Paris), the footwear collection was comprised entirely of hiking boots with a stuffy Victorian twist. Imbued with ruffles, and embellished with fur, the booties were on the masculine side of decadent but decadent nonetheless. Some of the most intriguing? The knee-high eyelet lace ups; only the most courageous would rock those.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Louis-Vuitton

Nicolas Ghesquière’s premier collection for Louis Vuitton was a smash hit and filled with pieces you want to buy and wear to shreds. The footwear did not escape the lush treatment, designed in combinations of black, beige, and cognac leather – a select few were even adorned with a gold LV medallion. We love the curved heel that pervaded the shoes, but our hearts are set on the two-tone mid-calf boot with superfluous straps.

Credit: Vogue
Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2014-Miu-Miu

Miu Miu’s collection was all about girlish, stick-to-your-teeth sugary charm. Pastels were rampant, the bags were perfect, and the shoes? Well, the shoes were just charming. Candy colored satin booties and metallic paisley brocade pumps were all fitted with a playful screw-like pin heel. If the hardware motif is not up your alley, the transparent waterproof boots are sure to make the impact you’re looking for.
