Chiara Ferragni Collection Pow Bang sandals | 4.5″/115mm | shop at Zappos and CFC

Top style blogger & influencer Chiara Ferragni launched her namesake shoe collection in 2010 with the signature glitter covered ‘Flirting’ flats slowly adding more & more heels to the collection every season. The Spring ’16 ‘Heroes to the Rescue’ shoes are whimsical as ever drawing inspiration from Wonder Woman-esque superheroes and exaggerated comic strip pop art sound effects.

This Pow Bang slip-on mule is one of our favorite styles from this collection featuring two-tone blue leather with a thin toe strap, red patent leather ‘Pow’ & ‘Bang’ appliqué and zig-zag trimmed front strap. It’s available in whole sizes only and alternatively stocked in a funky fun yellow silk satin. We’re also crazy about the blue ‘Stars’ sandals!

Gio-Diev-LogoLately, we’ve been looking for something a little bit different to fill the void in our footwear fashions. Where classics shoe shapes and silhouettes are undoubtedly wonderful, sometimes we just want to be able to look down at our feet and say “wow.” Sometimes, we just yearn for something elevated from the norm and evocative of effortless elegance. It wasn’t until we discovered Gio Diev and his sculptural footwear that we realized exactly what we have been missing, after what felt line eons of web browsing, we believe we’ve found our solemate.


Founder and creative director of the brand Gio Metodiev used to work in the world of PR with top designers – such as Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi – before realizing his need for creativity and stepping out from behind-the-scenes, heading straight to the forefront of design. That access and knowledge of the industry greatly aided his career ascent, but what really skyrocketed his career was his style; instead of basing his designs on the classics, he launched a footwear brand dedicated to being bold and memorable. Strong, yet sensual. He’s inspired by his surroundings, from the Melbourne Opera House to Josephine Baker’s banana skirt and he noted to Racked, “I see each shoe as a miniature sculpture. When it’s perfectly made it’s like a glorious vision of precision and beauty.”


Truly, when you look at his shoe designs, you are immediately struck by his signature sweeping sophisticated curves, a futuristic “Space Heel” that juts away from the body of the shoe, bold silhouette, and – our favorite! – silver lacquered heels of varying shapes. This season, he’s incorporated his trademark futuristic edge into luscious suede, vibrant python, metallic nappa, and soft leather to create a sensational, feast-for-the-eyes collection. As if that wasn’t excellent enough, his Ancona shoe uses a transparent rubber appliqué overtop white moiré grosgrain for a three-dimensional dazzle and he’s introduced a delicate Namaste embellishment, because the chicest way to say “Namaste, bitches” to your friends isn’t with an organic cotton tote, it’s with a pair of gorgeous handcrafted shoes.

Gio Diev’s futuristic stunners have been spotted on the trendy heels of Priyanka Chopra, Leven Rambin, Katie Holmes, and even Madonna. Luckily for all of us, he recently launched an eStore and every Spring 2014 style is available at GioDiev.com, because stars shouldn’t be the only ones with shoes worthy of bragging about!

I first spotted these exciting Spring 2013 sandals on Sophia Webster via Instagram. They feature florescent yellow and pale green smooth leather, woven leather island platform, skinny t-strap and adjustable ankle-strap. They’re only available in whole sizes.



Taylor Swift is featured in the March 2013 of ELLE wearing Gucci Gloria booties. These shoes are from the Spring 2013 collection featuring deep blue patent leather, pointed-toe and side zip. They’re available online in karung printed leather at Nordstrom and several styles at Gucci.

She wore a matching Spring 2013 blue silk top & pants also by Gucci plus blue jeweled earrings from the same collection. My favorite accessory was the beekeeper headpiece by Alexander McQueen as well as the Chanel black lace fingerless gloves.

Check more photos from her feature and other shoes spotted on Taylor.
