Charlotte-Olympia-Pre-Fall-2016-Platform-Sandal

Charlotte Olympia Electra sandal | 6″ / 155mm heel | available in pink satin at Zappos & Charlotte Olympia, in black embossed croc-effect leather at Net-A-Porter, black satin at Shopbop and black velvet at Moda Operandi for $995.00

For Charlotte Olympia’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection, a 1927 sci-fi film Metropolis is behind the inspiration.  From this collection titled “Mechanix” we see elegant shoe styles transformed with colorful network of cogs and wheels plus intricate circuit board embroidered prints. Electra features a crisscross vamp with a slingback strap, side buckled closure and chunky 40mm platform. We love these heels paired with a simple flirty layered skirt or vintage combo dress.

This season’s retro ready-to-wear calls for 1970s influenced footwear just like Kirkwood’s Maya platform sandal. Crafted with either high tortoiseshell leather, patent leather or smooth suede and finished with a chunky heel & 40mm platform. Maya is accented with a signature oversized floating feaux-pearl. We suggest pairing them with cropped wide-leg pants or pleated mini skirts.

Charlotte Olympia’s electric Pre-Fall 2016 Mechanix collection was inspired by Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ sci-fi epic. It’s a match made in heaven for Charlotte’s signature retro style as the film portrays a “highly stylized futuristic city” complete with snazzy robots, 1920s’ glamour and of course a dramatic love plot. Here’s a look at our favorite 5 styles:

Tom-Ford-shoes

They’re not only called “dance shoes” because you wear them while you bust a move to your jam, but they can also earn that description when just getting a glimpse of the pair literally invigorates you to do a happy dance. Whether you’re on a dance floor or not, you’d love to get your feet into Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection as it hits refresh on disco-glam footwear.

Discover fun, feminine and opulent shoes but with a punkier aesthetic in the form of metallic printed croc, cool cut-outs, spike heels and sexy pleats. The brazen collection boasts of a color scheme befitting of a woman ready to conquer the world, but with an unapologetic need to party. Yellow, silver, light pink, fuchsia, and gold are paired with glitzy metals and hair-calf prints, resulting in statement shoes that would make for an unforgettable spring and summer sartorial season.

The Hand Painted Open Back Ankle Strap Pumps meet the criteria of a power shoe –a sharp, pointed toe, a low spike heel, a striking animal print glistening in gold and fuchsia metals plus ankle and back straps are the perfect combination of sassy and sexy, commanding and seductive.  

We may have a longstanding love affair with classic pumps, but Tom Ford’s twist on the staple shoe has gotten as wanting to play footsie (literally and figuratively) with the Metallic Printed Croc Cut-Out Heel Pumps. In stunning silver, gold and light pink, these babies would look ultra-sleek when worn with cropped pants or to jazz up a little black dress. The low spike heel creates a voluptuous curve, creating a sexy silhouette despite its shortage in height.

And despite our love for color, black will always hold a special space in our shoe-obsessed hearts. The calf leather Frayed Satin Spike Heel Pump with its unravelled detailing lends a lovely contrast to the gold spike heel –perfect for a day-to-night shoe. The Pleated Wrap Sandal is perhaps our favorite –the wrap-around effect of the pleated viscose and seta fabrics along with the architectural block heel will definitely add extra s spring to our step (pun intended) this season.
