Jerome-C-Roussea-Jude-embellished-peep-toe-bootieWhen you think of Jerome C. Rousseau’s collections, the mental images you conjure should be as vibrant as they are intriguing and as bizarre as they are gorgeous. Remember his Fall 2013 collection? Studs, color blocking, glitter, floral velvet, and bondage straps (sometimes all working simultaneously!) elevated his ultra-high heels to new, quirky heights. However, with new seasons come new inspirations, and we’re very excited to report that the Spring 2014 line from Monsieur Rousseau is a veritable Technicolor wonderland.

Whether you’re into cork-infused pumps, perforated suede, strappy snakeskin, or – yes, you’re reading this right – glittery python, Rousseau has your feet covered and all done with his signature architectural flair.

The crowning jewel of the collection is the embellished bootie – the base of which is his phenomenal Juda model in gorgeous green leather (the color is somewhere between minty mojito and saturated sage) with lemon yellow leather mesh. From the supple leather base, over 7000 beads are carefully hand-applied by Los Angeles artist Emily J. Snyder, including coral, freshwater pearls, and vintage Czech crystal. The booties mirror Emily Snyder’s aesthetic perfectly, with each vibrant clusters of beads combining to create a sole-ful rainbow that will never fail to grab attention.

If you want in on the beaded Juda fun but don’t want to wait 60-75 days for the custom application (or maybe you’re just afraid of a wayward snag hitting your beautiful new booties), the open-toed shoe also comes in a printed silk design complemented by metallic golden leather. Juda is one of Rousseau’s design staples and available in several other stellar designs, like woven leather, animal printed calf hair, and even a leather laser-cut rose motif.

As if the collection couldn’t get better, he has also released a line of clutches and handbags that mirror the themes of his shoes. It’s time to retire your well-worn clutch and invest in one of his statement making minaudières!
