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.

Jerome-C-Roussea-Jude-embellished-peep-toe-bootieWhen you think of Jerome C. Rousseau’s collections, the mental images you conjure should be as vibrant as they are intriguing and as bizarre as they are gorgeous. Remember his Fall 2013 collection? Studs, color blocking, glitter, floral velvet, and bondage straps (sometimes all working simultaneously!) elevated his ultra-high heels to new, quirky heights. However, with new seasons come new inspirations, and we’re very excited to report that the Spring 2014 line from Monsieur Rousseau is a veritable Technicolor wonderland.

Whether you’re into cork-infused pumps, perforated suede, strappy snakeskin, or – yes, you’re reading this right – glittery python, Rousseau has your feet covered and all done with his signature architectural flair.

The crowning jewel of the collection is the embellished bootie – the base of which is his phenomenal Juda model in gorgeous green leather (the color is somewhere between minty mojito and saturated sage) with lemon yellow leather mesh. From the supple leather base, over 7000 beads are carefully hand-applied by Los Angeles artist Emily J. Snyder, including coral, freshwater pearls, and vintage Czech crystal. The booties mirror Emily Snyder’s aesthetic perfectly, with each vibrant clusters of beads combining to create a sole-ful rainbow that will never fail to grab attention.

If you want in on the beaded Juda fun but don’t want to wait 60-75 days for the custom application (or maybe you’re just afraid of a wayward snag hitting your beautiful new booties), the open-toed shoe also comes in a printed silk design complemented by metallic golden leather. Juda is one of Rousseau’s design staples and available in several other stellar designs, like woven leather, animal printed calf hair, and even a leather laser-cut rose motif.

As if the collection couldn’t get better, he has also released a line of clutches and handbags that mirror the themes of his shoes. It’s time to retire your well-worn clutch and invest in one of his statement making minaudières!

Allison Williams attended a recent ‘Meet The Actors’ panel at the Apple Store in SoHo wearing Christian Louboutin Resillissima booties. These Fall ’13 heels have also been spotted on Katy Perry and Hailee Steinfeld featuring black suede, fishnet panel, buckled strap around the ankle and 100mm heel. You can shop new Spring/Summer 2014 styles at Christian LouboutinSaks Fifth AvenueNeiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.

She arrived wearing a graphic cube-printed pale pink silk satin two-piece look by John Galliano including a three-quarter sleeves top with a contrast black elastic trim and pleated mini skirt from the Spring 2014 collection. Allison made this outfit more polar vortex appropriate by adding black stockings.

Her hair was pulled back in a simple bun and she finished her look with Jennifer Fisher jewelry including a Zig Zag ring and Mini Stud earrings.

Anna Kendrick wore Christian Louboutin Estandono peep-toe booties to the 2014 Directors Guild of America Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. These tuxedo-inspired shoes are from the Fall 2013 collection featuring glossy black patent leather, sheer nude mesh front panel and small black satin bow. You can shop the latest styles at Christian LouboutinSaks Fifth AvenueNeiman Marcus & Bergdorf Goodman.

She looked lovely wearing an aquamarine silk faille strapless A-line dress with a full skirt by Monique Lhuillier from the Resort 2014 collection. As much as I adore these booties, the cute blue strappy pumps presented with this frock are my first footwear choice for this look.

Anna pulled her hair back in a simple ponytail before finishing with a rose petal lip. She also accessorized with a Jack Vartanian Classic Diamond Rock necklace and Graziela Gems Wave ear cuffs.

Alejandro-Ingemo-Spring-2014-collectionWith his button-up shirt rolled to the elbows and his sleeve tattoo peeking out from beneath the haphazard folds, Alejandro Ingelmo doesn’t exactly scream “luxury footwear designer.” However, looks can be deceiving – Alejandro Ingelmo is a fourth generation shoe designer born and raised in Miami who has found his calling in making seductive pumps that women will be reaching for season after season. Parsons educated and New York based, his brand has been on a sky high trajectory since his womenswear collection debut in 2006.

One look at his sexy, eye-catching designs erases any question as to why his success has been so monumental. We’re in love with the neutral tones he regularly pairs with metallic leather, but this season the addition of color makes the collection more vibrant than ever. Vivacious orange snakeskin paired with gold and rose gold, minty blue-green offset by glimmering gold, and fuchsia paired with gunmetal are just a few of the combinations that have us double taking. It isn’t any wonder that he’s caught the attention of flashy songstresses like Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Nicki Minaj.

Not only does the delectable color palette have us coming back for more, the geometric twists of the Odyssey, Boomerang, Franca, and Circe designs need to be seen to be believed. Each and every shoe is masterfully crafted with an energetic and fierce flair. Additionally, Sophia Webster isn’t the only designer inspired by the glamor of the butterfly, as Alejandro Ingelmo’s Mariposa heels channel the delicate curves of a butterfly’s wings while a single leather lace and dramatic form elevate it to show stopping proportions.

Alejandro-Ingelmo-footwear-designer

If you’re not into racy five inch stilettos, he notably has created a selection of flats that channel his strong aesthetic without the heel. Having also designed shoes for Jen Kao, Cushnie et Ochs, Helmut Lang, Roksanda Ilinic and Kimberly Ovitz, chances are you’ve been drooling over his designs without even realizing it!

It isn’t all pumps and high-heeled wonders, though. Alejandro Ingelmo also curates a top-of-the-line sneaker collection for men, most known for his crazy cool and futuristic Tron sneaker.

His designs have been spotted on Stacy Keibler, Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, Janelle Monae, Hilary Duff, Justin Timberlake, and even Robert Downey Jr.! Stars gravitate to his designs because they combine architecture with a hint (or a large handful) of sparkle, creating statement making soles that are as stylish as they are striking. Luckily for us, even if we aren’t covering issues of Vogue or topping musical charts, we can own a pair of Alejando Ingelmo’s fabulous shoes. That’s just as good, right?

Oscar-Tiye-Zoe-rose-gold-sandal-Spring-2014When we covered the amazingly creative new luxury accessories label Oscar Tiye back in November, it was hard to form coherent sentences through our passionate gushing about the brand and their unique Fall 2013 collection. We are happy to report that their Spring 2014 collection meets the quality of the last one and amplifies it, creating a stronger and larger line that is so jam packed with stellar designs, you are going to start apologizing to your credit card now.

We’re seeing a lot of the gorgeous shapes featured in the Fall 2013 collection return in an array of warm weather colors and must-have-it-now variations. D’orsay iterations that put the wow in wow factor, fabulous cut out pumps that can seamlessly transition throughout the year, and an intriguing laser cut keyhole motif that is incorporated into sandals, sky-high pumps, and killer hybrid gladiator boots are all recognizable highlights. Our favorite comeback kid? The scarab beetle wings that echo the emblem of the brand – specifically, if we don’t get a pair of those scarab beetle winged sandals, we’re not sure if Oscar-Tiye-bootwe’re going to make it to their next fall collection.

However wonderful those old themes are (and they truly are unique in the best way), with every new collection comes new themes. Gorgeous color blocking collides with fringes and a stellar black and white geometric motif, twining leather straps on ankle sandals add a hard edge to a classic design, and ornate interlocking leather creates a knot embellishment on sandals. Alongside the scarab wings are shoes that incorporate their scarab insignia in a laser cut leather motif, often acting as the front of a sandal or flashy pump.

The Egyptian symbolism continues with the inimitable elongated neck of the ibis that serves as inspiration for a stunning lace up sandal booty, done in shocking yellow, vibrant blue, and luscious rose gold. Whether you’re a fan of fabulous flats or sky high statement heels, there is a pair of shoes out there just perfect for your shoedrobe.

With us being knee deep in red carpet season and the Academy Awards just around the corner, it’s time to rock your own Oscars.

I wanted to share a quick look at my favorite new arrivals this week. Many more playful resort styles have landed and a few new spring shoes are also trickling in (on pre-order).

Notes:
- Sophia Webster just launched her funky fun Resort 2014 collection and her signature Riko booties are (unsurprisingly) almost sold out however you can still snag them at Farfetch.
- Christian Louboutin’s latest staple peep-toe pump, Youpi (which I think we will see on the red carpet very soon) is now on pre-order in a classic black patent leather.
- Tamara Mellon’s debut collection has launched (have you seen the short film starring Karlie Kloss?)…it’s a relatively simple collection with select pieces now available at Net-A-Porter.
