It 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!

It’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.
The 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.

When 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 Aztec, Galata, and Gortik designs are right up your edgy alley, this legendary designer has got you covered.
