Nasiba sandal | 4″/ 100mm heel | available in black suede at Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth AvenueShopbop and Matches and in black velvet at MyTheresa for $895.00

These Nasiba sandals are sophisticated and chic, a perfect accessory for date night! Crafted from cashmere suede, these sandals have knotted straps with layered side panels. Nasiba also has a exposed back zip and covered 100mm stiletto heel. We’re thinking a scarlet red or a classic LBD will compliment these heels.

Fashion month may have officially wrapped up, but we still aren’t ready to double-air-kiss goodbye the shoes we spied on the Paris catwalks. So grab a box of macarons and enjoy our little runway recap of the most stylish shoes that dazzled in the City of Light.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Balmain
Balmain
Oliver Rouesting successfully showed how the female lines and curves can be celebrated even while completely covered up. Legs gained extra mileage with stretch suede boots that seemingly went on forever. The stilettos boots paired with opaque tights highlighted the sexy female form, without the skin doing a peek-a-boo act.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Lanvin
Lanvin
Matching the shiny brocade jackets, lacy tops and elegant evening gowns were chic and cool lace-up ankle booties with sneaker-like gold lace holes, pumps with chunky criss-cross straps and flat boots with button and snap details at the back shaft.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Christian-Dior
Christian Dior
It was a great display of modern aesthetics on the Dior runway. Lace-up, pointed-toe boots got multiple treatments –croc and snakeskin with cut-out details make for awesome work-to-play shoes. Their ankle heel counterparts are just as fab with its laces and side strap combo. The color and print blocking action, mixing reptile prints with neutrals, make these stunning shoes a staple in your mixing and matching pursuits.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Isabel-Marant
Isabel Marant
For club kids who always just want to have fun. Zebra-striped pixie booties were adorned with studs and the buckled flats were worn with matching socks for an overall boot effect that screams, 80s.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Balenciaga
Balenciaga
Your oversized ski jacket can now either be paired with go-go boots in your neutral color of choice, or satin pumps encrusted with sparkly accoutrements. And if you want your legs to be entirely covered in print, there are thigh-high boots for you with matching coats.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-GivenchyGivenchy
Ricardo Tisci has basically turned boots into pieces of clothing. The slender and sleek design either stopped at the knee or higher until it covered the leg like a pair of bottoms. Some sported nude toneswhile others in an edgier python print, accented with leather uppers flashing orange or gold hues. Metal heels also had a unique conical shape with graphic patterned in-lays.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Stella-McCartneyStella McCartney
It was the perfect mix of charm and chic. Low-block heels with a pointed toe in gray and white, make for the perfect professional shoe you can take to playtime as well. Leather pumps even got some leather trimmings and can definitely add a flirty and feminine touch to a power suit.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Giambattista-ValliGiambattista Valli
Classic and demure, feminine and fancy –fitting for the Parisian high society. Black pumps got extra strappy with its ladder-style, gladiator form. Black pointy flats were cutesy with its bow detail at the cap –we say “Oui” to its subtle and charming elegance.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-ChanelChanel
An equestrian theme would of course call for bucket hats with chinstraps and of course, riding boots. These tall riding boots with a cut-out detail at the ankle sported a wingtip brogue and dainty silver eyelets. In magenta, black, denim and gold, the boots were striking contrasts to the tweed jacket and coats draped with pearls.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-ValentinoValentino
The shoes perfectly matched the not-so basic, neutral color palette. A play on the classics –we are treated to heeled Mary Janes and strappy slingback sandals bedazzled with tiny crystals with matching ribbed socks. Then of course, the signature Rockstud ballet flats were also updated with the same iconic strap.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Louis-VuittonLouis Vuitton
The Louis Vuitton woman for fall is a heroine with style and attitude, plus a street cred to match. Nicolas Ghesquière presented lace-front combat boots in high-shine black or blue, or infused with the sporty details of kicks (now you get to know what it feels like to wear rubber shoes with heels).

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Miu-MiuMiu Miu
The concept of “less is more” did not exist on the Miu Miu runway. Suede boots and satin pumps were super fierce with their pin-thin heels. Even the back of the pumps were accented with bows on the back. Fur slides a.k.a. our dream bedroom slippers got a dose of sparkle, with its sprinkling of crystals and pearls. A standout piece and something worthy to be displayed inside a glass case would be the brocade pumps with a one-of-a-kind structural embellishment on the back.

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.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Salvatore Ferragamo
Salvatore Ferragamo
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
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.

Milan-Fashion-Week-Roberto Cavalli
Roberto Cavalli
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
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
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
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
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
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.

When London (fashion week) calls, we put everything else on hold and marvel at the sartorial splendour that the British runways have to offer. And it definitely was London-love at first sight with all the stunning shoes!

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Preen
Preen
With “poetry groupie” as their muse, designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi fused romanticism with glam grunge. Black Victorian lace-up boots were the perfect punctuations to the moody floral dresses. Over-the-knee and ankle boots wrapped in bows are absolutely the most awesome presents to own this fall.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-House-of-Holland
House of Holland
With a throwback to the seventies and twenties, you can expect lots of color –that’s for sure. Henry Holland dressed his models in punk-rock shoes ready to hit the dance floor. The disco-appropriate boots literally captured the vibrancy of the ultra-cool decades with shimmery metals matched with super-saturated orange and fuchsia, paired with cheetah and zebra prints.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-JW-Anderson
JW Anderson
Shoes were mini sculptures at the Anderson runway. The plethora of colors and textures turned the accessories into show stopping artworks. Kitten heel booties were sharp, and had a fun, modern twist with its translucent PVC and silver and black crystal-detailing. Our favorite would be the square-toed mules embellished with shiny multicolored scales.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Julien Macdonald
Julien Macdonald
When you’ve got sparkly, leg-baring dresses to wear, you’ll need the perfect shoes to showcase your pins. Take cue from the Macdonald runway and pair your thigh-skimming frocks with ladder-style, open-toe boots fastened with buckles, or simple yet ultra-chic ankle-strap stilettos in that neutral nude hue we absolutely adore.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Burberry
Burberry
If moto jackets are the hottest toppers this season, Christopher Bailey created the most fitting “moto boot” to complement them with. The edgy boots with a low-heel carried a statement-making pilgrim buckle that accented the python print. Other boot details include brocade, studs and kilties.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Antonio Berardi
Antonio Berardi
The femme fatale who is dressed in a neck collar and velvet bodice with corset lacing will off course need a pair of bondage boots. Case in point: Pointy booties with side cut-outs and an ankle strap, or boots with high-shine leather and side buckles will help unleash your inner dominatrix.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Alexander-McQueen
Alexander McQueen
Expect to fashionably embrace your femininity this fall courtesy of Sarah Burton. Ankle-strap stilettos lined with fur, and sandals adorned with crystals and ostrich feathers that gracefully billowed down the runway will make all of us a little bit more flirtatious in the fall.

London-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Mulberry
Mulberry
Johnny Coca presented a very hip alternative to fall footwear. If ballet slippers were to get a hefty dose of heel, then you’ve got these Mulberry platform heels with punchy, yellow and orange supersized satin lacing. Mid-calf boots also with platform heels were color-blocked in black, white or maroon, and proved to be sleek, modern and very wearable too.

Giannico-Spring-2016Set up the margarita station, bring out the donut pool floats, slip on your tiny bikini, lather up with sunscreen and turn up the reggae beats because it’s summer! At least that’s what the Giannico Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is celebrating.

The Eternal Summer Collection is inspired by cocktail-sipping under an umbrella in Hotel Martinez in Cannes, taking a dip in the Beverly Hills Hotel pool or super stylish Jackie O walking down the picturesque streets of Capri. Giannico’s collection is definitely packed with happy sunshine.

The vibrant color palette perfectly captures the electrifying spirit of the season. From zippy shades of yellow, orange and fuchsia, to refreshing sorbet hues of sky blue and baby pink, prep yourselves for an unforgettably dreamy summer. Created by the talented young designer Nicolò Beretta (born in Milan in 1996), the line really does capture his unabashed enthusiasm for color and style, with a hint of romanticism.

Reminiscent of beach umbrellas, white and yellow striped-prints decorate the eye-catching sandals and stilettos, while the tropical print of banana leaves gives mules, sandals and boots its summer stamp. The Marina flats and pumps in nautical blue are fun and flirty with its tiny bow or little bouquet of pastel-colored flowers crafted from vintage swimGiannico-shoes-Summer-2016 caps. There’s also a pop of animal print here and there, fiercely adorning the cap of a wedge sandal or the platform of a block heel pump.

One of our favorite twists on the summer shoe is the Super Lola. Your classic nude pumps just got some summer lovin’. The 110mm-heels with quilted velvet insoles get peppered with patent leather fuchsia kisses. Mwah!

The Lolita pointed-toe ballet flats are like shiny pink gumballs you’d love to wear with a sundress. They will definitely be a sweet and cheery addition to any shoe collection.

We can’t neglect the fact that there are summer nights too. When the sun sets and the large moon and sparkling stars transform into a disco ball with surrounding twinkling lights, dance to the rhythm of summer in a sexy pair of Madison open toe pumps in midnight black accented with a cheetah print heel.

Cheers to summer and fabulous pairs of shoes to celebrate with!

Liudmila-Spring-2016-Collection-HeelOnce you get your hands…errr…we mean your feet rather, into these shoes, prepare to immediately group message your girlfriends because you’d want to party plan, stat. But not just any party. You’d want a fancy soiree that screams Alice in Wonderland, Marie Antoinette, fairy tale balls, English gardens, quirky hats, parasols and sipping tea with pinkies in the air –that’s how whimsical the collection is. And don’t be embarrassed if you suddenly want to conjure up a butler who announces: “Your carriage awaits, Madam.”

Liudmila founder Najeeba was inspired by photos of the Nizams of Hyderabad –the Indian rulers of the Mughal Empire. Even if they were just re-touched photographs, she was captivated by the images of the abandoned palaces and perhaps, imagined all the exciting events that took place in such magnificent party playgrounds. Najeeba then created a color palette that seemingly paints the story of royals who were always ready to celebrate. Pearlescent leather in jewel and candy-like hues such as pink, purple, baby blue, silver and ivory –all exude opulence that is eminently approachable.

Najeeba ensures that her heels never go above 100 mm because she believes shoes should enhance and not hinder your life. But where it lacks in height, it makes up for statement-making style.

Liudmila-Spring-2016-Collection-Heel

Channel your inner Disney Princess when you slip into the Mame ankle- strap sandals in periwinkle or blush suede, adorned with a chunky crystal and ostrich feathers. Or shoe gems like the Sari –curved platform wedges in amethyst or bubblegum pink satin, with gold or silver tassels you can tie around your ankles or up your calf –for the warrior princesses out there, perhaps? The delicately-sloped Piali kitten heels in gold or silver nappa are charmingly tied with floral-printed bows –like little presents for playful ballerinas.

And if princesses were to saddle up their horses, there’s the Juba short boot with a 50 mm heel, a dainty lilac pearl color and a fun cut-out design at the front. Not that you’ll need any mode of transportation, really. These fantastic shoes were made for walking (you’d want to find opportunities to flaunt them all the time, anyway).

Who needs Prince Charming when you can get your happy ever after with these precious shoes?
