Designer Shoes: Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent Loulou Spring 2018 Wood Leather Sandal

Saint Laurent Loulou sandal | 3″ / 95mm heel | available at Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Matches and Barneys.

Loulou is inspired by Loulou de la Falaise, who was first introduced to Saint Laurent in 1968. She encouraged his playful sense of imagination which he used to create many of the label’s coveted accessories. Made in Italy from smooth leather, the Loulou sandal has slim straps outlined in black edges, a square toe and slender 95mm block heel. We would pair them with our favorite denim pieces to help draw out the rustic aesthetic they bring. Try these pieces from R13, JBrand and Current/Elliot.

Saint Laurent Anja Spring 2018 d'Orsay Pump

Saint Laurent Anja d’Orsay pump | 4″ / 105mm heel | available at Net-A-Porter and Farfetch.

These Saint Laurent pumps are named after Anja Rubik who is a Polish model, muse and friend to Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello. Anja pumps feature sand colored soft suede tipped in black at the toe. The d’Orsay style creates a modern yet classy vibe perfect for the office or evening wear. They also feature an adjustable buckled ankle strap and stiletto 150mm heel. We would create an business-chic look with these Anja pumps featuring cropped dark denim, a basic white tee and sleek black blazer.

Saint Laurent Lily boot | 4″ / 95mm heel | available in brown suede at Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, LuisaViaRoma, Nordstrom and Forward by Elyse Walker plus in black suede at MyTheresa for $1595.00

Bring out your bohemian vibes this winter with these new Saint Laurent Lily boots. Designed to hit just below the knee, these boots are made with soft suede and lined with smooth leather. Layers of long fringe tiers cascade diagonally across for a Western-inspired finish. Pair these Lily boots with our favorite Zimmerman embroidered silk georgette midi-dress, a wide-brim hat and some Chan Luu jewels.

Even more obvious than the painted cork trend, denim footwear is impossible to overlook this spring. From shoe maestro Blahnik to pacesetter , the industry brings us a playful spin on the classic jean twill.

From pumps to sandals, platforms to stilettos – each designer created a unique styles inspired by the blue Americana staple. Not only is denim is a reliable fabric perfect for everyday wear but it’s also an interestingly stylish shoe textile.

I particularly love Gianvito Rossi’s take, adding several denim designs to his spring collection which features a dark wash exaggerated with frayed patches. Both Fendi and Christian Louboutin combined a lighter shade with tropical floral printed leather. Jimmy Choo carries the most amount of denim styles this season adding a sleek contrasting black leather trim to several styles.

This season many footwear designers and brands, from Nicholas Kirkwood to Valentino, retired the celeb-favorite pin thin stiletto opting for the return of a chunky, block heel. This trendy shape is 70s infused with a hint of modern bohemian glamour that would make Bianca Jagger proud.

We pulled 10 fabulous examples of this trend now at retail…I guess the question is: will you be swapping your skinny summer-ready stilettos for this blocky silhouette?
