Designer Shoes: Versace

by:zenzhu
Our tour of the fashion capitals of the world continues. Next stop? Milan! Let’s take a closer look at our favorite Italian exports –nope, not the best-tasting pizza or the creamiest gelato there is –but shoes, of course! Whet your sartorial appetite with these shoes that are just, bellisima.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Dolce-Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana
Disney Princess wannabee? Dolce & Gabanna’s whimsical heels will make your fairy tale dreams come true. Metallic t-strap pumps were embellished with glitter, multicolored flowers and furry pompoms. PVC pumps were reminiscent of Cinderella’s glass slippers –you’d never want to leave a shoe behind, that’s for sure –midnight curfew or not.

Furry footwear also tickled the Ferragamo runway. Fur trim adorned the ankle strap on an otherwise classic, muted satin sandal. Toe caps of block-heeled pumps also got the furry treatment, giving the chic footwear the cozy touch of bathroom slippers. Zigzag-patterned lizard skin and suede booties and knee-highs were also playful and edgy additions to the flirty footwear collection.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Dsquared2

Stilettos stole the show with its super ornate embellishments –tassels, cord lacing, beadwork, badges, ruffles, belts, straps and buckles were the perfect details to match the military mood of the edgy Victorian coats and Sargent jackets.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Prada
Prada
The Prada woman for fall is a traveller who treks, hikes and explores in style. Her nomadic footwear consists of lace-ups with wedge heels, multicolored laces and nautical detailing. Her Prada pilgrimage will continue with glossy patents and color-blocked leathers, adorned with golden buckles.

Now you can wear a pair of snakeskin platform boots for almost everyday of the week. The go-go boots came in a plethora of colors –black, gold, purple, blue and green –all snag-worthy for the glam-rock chicks out there.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fendi

Cropped and over-the-knee boots weren’t shy of details –the leg covering footwear were heavily dressed up in ruffled leather, scaling, garters and tapered heels. These beauties had an eye-catching color palette too, from cotton candy hues to super bold shades that would light up the streets in the fall.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fausto-Puglisi

With Madonna mash-ups playing the background, you can definitely expect a show that is equal parts sexy, rebellious and edgy. Stomp-worthy combat boots were bedecked with studs and colorblocked with blue or green covering. Cowboy boots were studded and buckled –super sexy when paired with short skirts. Then there’s that pair of metallic gladiator boots that are extremely feminine, fierce and totally hot!

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Gucci

Alessandro Michele described his dreamy collection as an ode to, as he said, “some of my passions” –the Seventies, The Renaissance and Street Style were celebrated through platform wedges paired with lustrous hosiery. Horse-bit loafers got a fun makeover and were spruced up with a pointed toe and block heels, while your classic round-toe Mary Janes turned into entrancing accessories with its optical illusion print.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Versace

It was a kitten heel parade. Leather ankle booties, got the modest-heel treatment, while pointy pumps already came with zipped up socks for a cosy touch. Ankle strap pumps got a little bit more height and color too. Our favorite? The fluorescent yellow capped stilettos with coral ankle straps.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Marni

Consuelo Castiglioni obviously likes to experiment with conceptual forms. Pointy pumps in high-shine neutrals featured wooden wedges with gold trimming –the shoes were like wearable pieces of furniture. Tall boots were also given added lift by wooden orbs, while other pumps were elegantly accented with curved, swirly-shaped wooden heels.

About the author: Zenzhu is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. He thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more). 

Milan Fashion Week is basically synonymous with stellar, gorgeous, and innovated shoes. Season after season, we can rely on them to amp up the footwear game with unexpected influences and executions. Spring 2014 was no exception, as each show seemed to have shoes that screamed “buy me, buy me!” as they were strut down the catwalk. Without further ado, here is your Milan Fashion Week footwear recap:

Emilio PucciEmilio Pucci-Spring-2014-Shoes

To celebrate his growing rapport with hip hop and R&B icons like Ciara, Rita Ora, and Rihanna, Peter Dundas’ latest Emilio Pucci collection is a heady combination of streetwise sportiness and opulent elegance. Perforated leather and SCUBA-inspired shaping goes head-to-head with ornate Masai embroidery in sporty lace-up booties, resulting in a shoe collection that is equal parts unique and energetic.

Emilio Pucci-Spring-2014-ShoesStyle.com

Roberto CavalliRoberto Cavalli-Spring-2014-Shoes

Thin and strappy was the name of the footwear game on Roberto Cavalli’s catwalk. Dazzling sandals were fitted with meticulously braided and knotted leather straps and laces of varying lengths, sitting overtop a sturdy stacked heel. Additionally, the muted and neutral color palette of the shoes make these gorgeous soles perfectly fit for most flouncy and flirty spring outfits.

Roberto Cavalli-Spring-2014-ShoesStyle.com

VersaceVersace-Spring-2014-Shoes

When we think of Versace, we usually think of a punk-infused, revealing glamor. Even at their most studded and patent leathered, Versace shoes tend to be edgy and sleek. This season, Donatella did a 180° twist from what we normally expect, presenting us a shoe collection centered on a clunky-soled sandal with silver-tone buckles situated on elastic straps piped with leather. We can’t say whether or we like this direction from their design team, but judging how celebrities are already wearing the designs out and about – Lady Gaga was spotted in a lavender pair – we’re sure this will be a commercial success.

Versace-Spring-2014-ShoesStyle.com

BlumarineBlumarine-Spring-2014-Shoes

Anna Molinari’s latest Blumarine collection was all about balancing the desire to be innocent and the urge to be a provocateur. On one hand, the sandals were dainty, polite, and sweet – perfect for picaresque picnics with friends, or a mid-morning brunch with family; the slight platform was as far as the edge went. The other hand? Dramatically strapped snakeskin booties, embellished with near-gaudy gems and with a dramatically pointed toe. The duality of the collection makes it commercially viable, a pair for every personality type.

Blumarine-Spring-2014-ShoesVogue.com

EtroEtro-Spring-2014-ShoesVogue.com

This spring collection was all about revisiting the Etro archives, so it isn’t surprising that the shoes spotted on the runway evoke a classic, timeless feel to them. Etro’s signature patterned fabrics, which we have come to know and love, could be spotted the embellished straps of sandals and delicate pumps. Metallic finishes brought them into the modern era, but the line still maintained a ‘70s party allure.

GucciGucci-Spring-2014-Shoes

Like Versace and Emilio Pucci, Gucci’s line was heavily inspired by sports. While it isn’t quite as literal as Pucci, we saw three different styles on the runway – ribbon slashed heels, cut-out pumps, and strappy sandal-booties – with differing variations of python, leather, and suede. The illustrations of Erté and the era of Art Nouveau were the inspirations of the collection and we can see that showing through with the pops of marigold, merlot, mid-tone purple, and forest green. Our only problem with collection is that it felt very autumnal and heavy for a spring collection.

Gucci-Spring-2014-ShoesVogue.com

PradaPrada-Spring-2014-Shoes

Season after season, Prada creates shoes that blogging fashionistas fawn over. Miuccia Prada is a designer that revels in the ugly, loves taking risks, and is a regular in the world of art-fashion. The high rubber sporty heels of this collection were typical of what we expect – mashed-up themes, vibrant primary colors, thick straps, oddball color blocking, and massive rhinestones bejeweled onto every available surface. They’re bizarre and they’re statement making, just how we like our Prada lines.

Prada-Spring-2014-ShoesVogue.com

FendiFendi-Spring-2014-Shoes

If Kaiser Karl’s last Fendi line didn’t reignite your love of the architectural aspects of fashion, we’re not sure what to tell you – the shoes presented on the runway were nothing short of stellar. Set upon industrial caged “double heels,” delicate interlocking straps of metallic, patent, and lizard leather were offset by an ingenious use of semi-sheer PVC and gemstones. In his apparel, he layered organza to create unique and stunning motifs; in his shoes, he used thin PVC to replicate the effect, creating an image of varying opacity. When he wasn’t doing that, he was using the vivid colored plastic to mold dramatic angles and pyramidal crevices. There was a whimsical and modern air to Fendi this season, Karl Lagerfeld has reassured us again that he is a visionary.

Dolce & GabbanaDolce & Gabbana-Spring-2014-Shoes

On the spring 2014 runways, it was business as usual for iconic Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana. Those who grow tired of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s use of Sicilian culture and Italian iconography in their collections don’t understand that those ties to the Mediterranean are so ingrained within their brand’s DNA that to not include the images would not be Dolce & Gabbana. It’s a gaudy overabundance that we have come to expect, a sort of literal inspiration – like the rhinestone embellished gladiator sandal, the platform pump set upon an ionic column, the wedge studded with Roman coins – that makes us smile. It’s an artisanal workmanship that turns away from the phrase “less is more,” opting for embroidery, embellishment, and vivid colors.

Dolce-&-Gabbana-Spring-2014-ShoesStyle.com

CoSTUME NATIONALCoSTUME NATIONAL-Spring-2014-ShoesElle.com

As if to balance the theme of overabundance in Milan this season, Costume National went for soles that were strikingly minimalistic. To match the deconstructed tailoring of the collection, the footwear feels distinctly practical with a unique edge. There is something in the dramatic point of the closed-toe, the exaggerated slope of the foot, and the color finishes – mostly monochromatic, but we can’t get enough of the woodgrain-inspired pattern on some of the shoes – that make this a unique and downright cool shoe collection.

Jil SanderJil-Sander-Spring-2014-ShoesVogue.com

Jil Sander’s footwear collection was among the more classically inspired from Milan Fashion Week, with focus primarily on breathing new life into the classic oxford. How? Well, with a massively chunky wooden platform heel, of course. The flats on the runway were also not-quite-flat, elevated by an inch or two of platform (flatforms, we like to call them) that drew attention to the added height with the use of dichromatic color blocking. Dove grey, stark white, black, and taupe were the stars of the color palette.

Salvatore FerragamoSalvatore-Ferragamo-Spring-2014-Shoes

For their spring collection, Salvatore Ferragamo stayed within a muted and soft color palette. Save for the occasional use of black, this season was about an earthy-toned romanticism based in neutral snake skins and soft beiges. Boxy shapes and square toes were innovated by tiny eyelets and nailhead studs skattered along the snakeskin, internal metal plating, external seaming along the ridges, and unique, double-take worthy flared heels. We even love the exaggeration of the edges with the large buckles, it’s a high fashion pilgrim look that we can’t wait to spot on savvy style stars.

Versace-Spring-2013-Sandal-Rihanna

Rihanna was spotted wearing Versace sandals while out in London. These heels are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring white leather straps, gold-tone metal Medusa medallion studs, buckled ankle-strap and 95mm heel. Miley Cyrus also wore them last month. They’re available in black at Shopbop and Versace.

She left her hotel dressed in all white and accessorized with a Fleet Ilya classic tan leather visor and Zanzan Erzulie sunglasses. Rihanna piled on the gold jewelry including a Gianni Versace Vintage Medusa bracelet, Balenciaga giant stud leather bracelet, vintage Chanel giant revolver dangle earrings and Fallon Classique Spike ring.

There are several new shoes at Moda Operandi worth mentioning! I first wrote about all of these styles in my London and Milan Fashion Week posts.

The Nicholas Kirkwood for Peter Pilotto shoes, as usual, received lots of attention during London Fashion Week. There’s so much going on and yet everything works beautifully together.

I have mixed feeling about the Versace shoes. I was excited when I saw the lace-up booties on the runway however I’m not crazy about the side stitching, it reminds me of an ice-skater + caveman shoe.

Matthew Williamson debuted a new signature footwear line to celebrate the brand’s 15 anniversary. The platform sandals feature heavy embellishment and sculpted, wavy platforms.

As I started to look at the detailed photos, I wasn’t really excited by the patent leather cage designs sandals. However, towards the end of the show, there were a couple beautiful ankle-strap sandals. Most of them feature the signature metal horsebit and one design featured an oversized buckle.

What do you think, futuristic cuteness or alien trashy? This footwear collection features geisha-inspired flatforms, metallic socks, appliqué flowers, pink satin and modern bows. The platform sandal pictured in the middle right above this text is cute however I can’t see past the black socks. It would be very nice in the pink satin/metallic silver combination.

These are certainly interesting to look at but thankfully, Prada’s off-runway shoes are the platform sandals & wedges we actually purchase :).

There were two different types of platform cut-out wedges seen on the Spring 2013 runway. One variation was made of stingray and leather edging, the other featured skinny leather straps across the toe and ankle with a wooden platform.

You can find Scervino’s shoes on discount at Yoox and they carry similar platform sandals in suede.

I caught the show on live stream and it opened with the tall black leather gladiator boots featuring a pointed-toe and pvc insert. We then saw the pointed-toe pumps featuring gold rectangles on the straps. The next styles had gold fringe with gold metal detail which matched several of the outfits. The last shoes to hit the runway were the lace-up platforms in nude, orange and navy, these were my favorite. 

The designs were beautiful however I’m over the PVC! Well not completely, (I would wear these) but I refuse to purchase/wear the styles that will suffocate my feet…no one wants to wear a foggy shoe!

I also watched the live stream for this show and the these sky-high platform wedges were a perfect complement to the sheer embroidered long pants and dresses in this Japanese-inspired collection. Several shoes featured an intricately carved wedge with knotted skinny leather straps and others had a metallic gold textured wedge with satin straps. My favorite design is the white leather sandal with the pet dragon, I love how his body wraps around the wedge.

I’m ready for a Sicilian holiday! There were predominately kitten heels and flats walking the runway however the few wedges we saw still made a statement. They were all very bright and featured crochet & raffia uppers with either a sculpted, hand painted wedge or wicker embellishment.

I really loved Cavalli’s python ankle-strap sandals. They have a platform set atop a gold or silver pointed-toe with a metal strip attached to the ankle-strap and a metallic stiletto heel. My favorite design is the pale lime sandal.

The fashion show featured sky-high platform sandals made of metallic leather and python with buckled straps that wrap around the shoe. Another design had a completely embellished upper with a metallic silver leather platform and peep-toe. The shoes are nice however I’m still thinking about Cavalli’s designs…

The obvious standout shoes were the over-the-knee sandal boots. They’re beautiful however would you wear these for spring/summer (more for editorial, no?)? The other shoes in the collection were as equally nice featuring a lace-up ankle wrap with a chunky heel and pointed-toe. 

Now on to Paris!

Lea Michele wore Versace grey suede platform pumps to the Atelier Versace Fall 2012 fashion show in Paris. These pumps are from the Fall 2012 collection featuring a metallic platform and stiletto heel. You can find a similar pump in leopard online at FarFetch.

Lea is wearing a beautiful Versace Spring 2012 orange and grey dress. Elizabeth Banks and Jessica Alba were also at the show wearing the same pumps however Lea’s seem to be a size too big. Why is this so common for her? Check out more shoes spotted on Lea.
