Garcon-leather-boot-Gianvito-Rossi-Fall-2014It takes a lot of guts to go into the footwear industry when your father is a veritable accessories virtuoso. After all, those are big shoes to fill! However, Gianvito Rossi, son of Sergio Rossi, has taken the challenge in stride and paved a way for his own brand to be front and center in the luxury shoe market. Drawn to classic designs with a subtle, yet unmistakable edge, his collections are always the perfect mix of sophisticated and sexy. Unsurprisingly, his Fall 2014 collection embodies everything he thrives on, from elegant statement makers to staples that will never leave your wardrobe rotation.

Inspired by “the cowgirls of long ago”, the palette this time around is the epitome of autumnal comfort – for example, cream spliced with black, a warm tan that’s reminiscent of the best latte you’ve ever had, and a burgundy that is so rich, you can practically picture the rustling leaves it was inspired by.

The collection is brought to life through contrasting that myriad of hues; the way the tan contrasts against the delicate black shaping, and hints of metallic pumpkin transforms an ankle booty into a total game changer, making the shoes stunning and versatile. The touches of calf hair cow print woven into the collection? Seamless and never too much, ideal for a day at the office and a date with the girls afterwards.

In terms of silhouettes, we see a lot of our favorite Gianvito standbys including lace-up peep-toe pumps, thick buckled ankle straps and over-the-knee heeled boots in smooth as butter leather. However, it’s not all classic, wear-everywhere designs, because he’s included a few gotta-look-thrice options, namely the lace and suede thigh-high Rose boot that will make you instantaneously channel your inner Rihanna the moment you finish lacing them up. Wowza!

With every collection, it becomes clear that Gianvito is a designer on a mission to dress the fiercest women with his age-defying designs. With Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Emma Watson and Shailene Woodley a part of his esteemed clientele, it’s clear to see that he’s well on his way. We can’t wait to see what he does next!

Sophia-Webster-quote-Fall-2014When we think of Sophia Webster, we think of sass. Pure, unadulterated, and heartfelt sass; in fact, we’re pretty sure that if you looked up “feisty” in the sartorial dictionary, a pair of her thin-heeled ankle-strap sandals would be pictured. For her Pre-Fall and Fall 2014 collections, Sophia takes a morose theme (“Heartbreak Hotel”) and turns it into something utterly charming and vibrant. Who needs love when you can buy shoes?

The shoes themselves would be at home in Barbie’s Dreamhouse or on the toes of one of the many girl power popgroups of the ‘90s. Metallic houndstooth, fringe, gaudy faux jewels, and vivid colors were just the start of the Cher Horowitz Heartbreak influence, the saturated over-the-top theme is threaded through both the collections. Fur-embellished mules and sandals collide with laser-cut gladiator over-the-knee boots making for a host of statement making shoes that would turn heads in any scenario. No boyfriend? No problem! These darling heels are sure to add enough sweetness to your wardrobe for an eternity – or, at least, until next season.

Leopard prints, rounded stacked ball heels, and cartoonish embellishments (paisley, hearts, and flamingos!) add an innocent streak through the collection, rounded out by the deviously high stiletto points and edgy addition of vinyl. In terms of silhouettes, we can always count on her to release a balanced collection of thick-soled vintage-inspired designs with pinpoint stilettos – though this time, she also included a couple sneakers and flat-soled sandals. One thing we love about Sophia is her ability to incorporate popular trends into her shoes without them losing her je ne sais quoi. She’s readily embraced the sportswear trend of recent seasons but unlike other designers, the confectionary color of the rubber treads and lace-up styles feel fresh, unique, and playful.

This collection has been hailed as another golden star in Sophia Webster’s impressive catalogue. After scooping up the Emerging Accessories Designer at the British Fashion Awards and landing a Fashion Forward sponsorship, she has become a veritable fashion train that is on the fast track to British design royalty. We’re excited to see where she takes her candy colored fairytale world – if it’s anything like this collection, we know we’ll be head over heels (Heartbreak Hotel not needed!).

You can find select styles from both of these collection now on pre-order at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Zoey Deutch wore Alexander Wang Alla booties to the Marie Claire’s Fresh Faces party held in Hollywood. They’re from the Spring 2014 collection featuring black leather, open-toe and 110mm cut-out wedge. Alla is available at Shopbop, Forward by Elyse Walker and Alexander Wang.

The 19-year-old actress arrived in a red lattice-back apron dress with a square cut neck, open sides and spaghetti straps also by Alexander Wang.

Zoey complemented the eye-catching look with a sleek wrapped ponytail slicked back in a center part, sheer coral pink lip and onyx nails. She carried Charlotte Olympia Pandora spider perspex box clutch.

Giuseppe-Zanotti-Design-logoIt’s hard to believe that Giuseppe Zanotti’s twenty year road to success was not paved in stiletto-friendly golden cobblestones. He reminisced to WWD, “I started with stilettos that were superglam, superfeminine and sexy — and the business was a flop. For the first two or three seasons, it was a tragedy.” With the ink still damp on his LMVH partnership and an ever-growing fanbase, it’s hard to envision a fashion world bereft of his sleek and sexy footwear. It makes you want to go into your closet, pick up your favorite Zanotti stiletto – at least four inches high – and feel thankful that we live in an age of sass, verve, and sartorial savviness.

So, how does Giuseppe Zanotti celebrate twenty phenomenally successful years in fashion? Not with a tell-all book or autobiographical movie, but – as per our expectations from the Italian footwear maestro – with more shoes; a four part delightful capsule collection, to be precise. Taking inspiration from the past while looking to the future is innovative and clever, a way to pay homage to those who were with him at the start of his journey to new coming fans that can’t get enough of his trademark snake embellishments.

With the gorgeously glamorous Spring 2014 collection still fresh in our minds (and hearts, and dreams…you get the picture), we were wondering how those exotic and quintessential Zanotti themes would appear in an autumnal context. If we had any doubts that he still had it (we didn’t, this is hypothetical), they would have been swept away by golden snake-embossed leather slingback stilettos and gotta-look-twice red quilted leather moto heels.

Glitter, suede, and python-embossed leather – oh my! This collection is one to start budgeting for, carrying designs fit for every lifestyle and fashion twist. From the stunning geometric suede and rhinestone-embellished booty to the golden leafy filigree on an open-toed sandal; from the glittery flat boot to the crimson mule; just when you think Zanotti can’t top his last collection, he finds a way to make you lust after a pair of kitten heels. And, really, is that not real power? In addition to the flattering and statement making silhouettes, there is a plethora of dainty silver chains, buckles, calf hair, snake emblems, and gold plating to make sure that one look from onlookers will  have them keeling over in envy.

If these designs are any indication of the genius of Zanotti, we can only imagine the adept hand and skill used to craft his 40th anniversary. That’s just around the corner, right?

Tabitha-Simmons-butterfly-printed-shoeIt’s hard to sum up Tabitha Simmons in a nutshell. In her youth, she was a stellar fashion model that successfully transformed her career into a must-have stylist, styling runway shows, lookbooks, and editorials for massive names such as American Vogue, Rag & Bone, Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana. Her pleasant demeanor and behind-the-fashion-scene acumen sent her career on a sky-high trajectory but Tabitha didn’t stop there. Her voracious appetite to try new things and artistic eye led her to pick up another avenue in the fashion industry: shoe design. Naturally, she and her brand have flourished. With that in mind, if we were to accurately describe her in three words, it’d probably be: Fashion’s Wonder Woman.

Since starting her brand in 2009, Tabitha’s footwear has been widely and warmly accepted by the fashion industry. Her Spring 2014 collection is as strong and lush as we’ve come to expect from Tabitha’s aesthetic, which is to say: everything we could ever want and more. Unmistakably feminine, confidently daring, it’s hard to pick a favorite.

Tabitha-Simmons-striped-LB-sandalThe silhouettes range from sleek to quirky, strappy to minimalistic - giving plenty of options for any walk of life. We love how she’s not afraid to play around with heavier shapes and despite the season, even adding in a signature calf hair boot. Sugary sweet themes, such as thin baby blue stripes or candy colored glitter, are balanced out by the undoubtedly dramatic – we’re talking snakeskin, perforated eyelet leather, and crystal covered bows.

We particularly gravitate to the Bailey fully crystal embellished sandal and the handful of designs that are printed with colorful butterfly designs on woven silk. They’re the perfect blend of classic and sass which make for the ultimate statement shoe.

Though the heels are high and the impact is bold, Tabitha never designs without comfort in mind. She understands the daily routine of a woman on the go and knows the importance of wearability, no matter the style or height. After all, we find it hard to believe that Tabitha herself is in one place at one time for more than five minutes – why shouldn’t style travel alongside comfort? We can’t ask for a collection of shoes more perfect than hers.

Christian-Louboutin-Allenissima-black-patent-leatherWhen it comes to modern, iconic footwear – a brand that ceaselessly melds class and infectious sex appeal into every design, there is only one brand that (rightfully) springs to mind: Christian Louboutin. A designer so obsessed with his craft that he slept in his design studio for eight years while launching his career into stratospheric heights, it isn’t remotely surprising that he consistently delivers jaw dropping collections.

The Fall 2014 collection – the one we had a glorious, if fleeting, sneak peek of back in March – showcases Louboutin’s love of versatility, as well as his total adoration of fabulous, ankle-breaking heights.

Lovely floral prints, delicate laser cut filigree and strappy styles in both classic and rich suedes harken back to the iconic Louboutin image that grab celebrity ambassadors by the handful. Our favorite twist on the classic? Louboutin’s ingenious use of crackled metallic leather; we’d call it the new snakeskin, but judging from his pristine use of python in some of the other designs, we have to consider the gorgeous crackled metallic in a league all of its own.

One of the most notable silhouette additions comes from the dramatically corset-laced sculpted pumps, first seen on the Fall 2014 Marchesa runway. Initially inspired by ballet, the Conquilla lace-up concave wedges are one part kink and two parts “please get in my closet, now.” However, those aren’t the only soles to make a massive visual impact; for example, the Pigalle Follies Strass are crystal-studded masterpieces that we would possibly give up croissants for life in order to have. We also see candy-colored studs used elsewhere, both complementing metallic hues and floating atop of clear PVC.

Other gotta-look-twice features of the collection include lattice-like laser cut suede, oversized grommets accented with whipstitch trim and glitter infused sheer fishnet.

The brand that has forever cemented red-lacquered soles and Christian Louboutin’s legacy into the Fashion Dictionary (chicly sandwiched between Chloé and Coco Chanel) has done it yet again. Whether you’re a woman who gravitates to Louboutin’s classic and sleek designs, or if the mixed media AztecGalata, and Gortik designs are right up your edgy alley, this legendary designer has got you covered.

New York, London, Milan….over one hundred shows, countless outfits, and an incredible amount of shoes later, we’re finally in the crème de la crème of fashion week: Paris. The City of Lights and Enviable Fashion! Grab a croissant and a café au lait‎, because we’re going to show you the hottest soles to walk the runway from Paris Fashion Week.

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?

Credit: Elle
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.

Credit: Elle
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.

Credit: Elle
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.

Credit: Vogue
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.
