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!

When we think of Sophia Webster, we think of sass. Pure, unadulterated, and heartfelt sass; in fact, we’re pretty sure that if you looked up “feisty” in the sartorial dictionary, a pair of her thin-heeled ankle-strap sandals would be pictured. For her Pre-Fall and Fall 2014 collections, Sophia takes a morose theme (“Heartbreak Hotel”) and turns it into something utterly charming and vibrant. Who needs love when you can buy shoes?
The shoes themselves would be at home in Barbie’s Dreamhouse or on the toes of one of the many girl power popgroups of the ‘90s. Metallic houndstooth, fringe, gaudy faux jewels, and vivid colors were just the start of the Cher Horowitz Heartbreak influence, the saturated over-the-top theme is threaded through both the collections. Fur-embellished mules and sandals collide with laser-cut gladiator over-the-knee boots making for a host of statement making shoes that would turn heads in any scenario. No boyfriend? No problem! These darling heels are sure to add enough sweetness to your wardrobe for an eternity – or, at least, until next season.
Leopard prints, rounded stacked ball heels, and cartoonish embellishments (paisley, hearts, and flamingos!) add an innocent streak through the collection, rounded out by the deviously high stiletto points and edgy addition of vinyl. In terms of silhouettes, we can always count on her to release a balanced collection of thick-soled vintage-inspired designs with pinpoint stilettos – though this time, she also included a couple sneakers and flat-soled sandals. One thing we love about Sophia is her ability to incorporate popular trends into her shoes without them losing her je ne sais quoi. She’s readily embraced the sportswear trend of recent seasons but unlike other designers, the confectionary color of the rubber treads and lace-up styles feel fresh, unique, and playful.
This collection has been hailed as another golden star in Sophia Webster’s impressive catalogue. After scooping up the Emerging Accessories Designer at the British Fashion Awards and landing a Fashion Forward sponsorship, she has become a veritable fashion train that is on the fast track to British design royalty. We’re excited to see where she takes her candy colored fairytale world – if it’s anything like this collection, we know we’ll be head over heels (Heartbreak Hotel not needed!).
Cara Delevingne was spotted out in London after attending the Fendi flagship store opening wearing Tabitha SimmonsEva open-toe booties. These signature shoes feature black suede, silver-tone hardware details and zip-up front. Eva is available (on sale!) at Tabitha Simmons.
Cara’s hair was pulled back in a sleek wrapped high ponytail and she also accessorized with a Fendi Buggies bag, small safety pin earring, gold tusk earring, dramatic under-eye liner and Jennifer Fisher Jewelry mini English letter “Cara” necklace.
Cameron Diaz wore Maison Martin Margiela open-toe booties to ‘The Other Woman’ photo call held at the Park Hyatt in Sydney, Australia. They’re from the Resort 2014 collection featuring yellow leather, concealed side-zip and chunky 110mm heel. You can find these booties in yellow at FarFetch or brown leather at Neiman Marcus.
For the last stop during this long promotional tour, she posed with her co-stars all wearing angelic white tops. Cameron wore indigo skinny jeans paired with a Band of Outsiders heather grey cotton hopsack double-breasted Shrunken blazer and silk blend sheer Clark embroidered top by IRO from the Spring 2014 collection.
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 fullycrystal 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.

Jennifer Lopez arrived at Power 106’s “New at 2″ show in Los Angeles wearing Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe suede fringe booties. These “maya-rock” heels are from the Resort 2014 collection featuring wisteria suede, multicolored studded front, suede fringe sides, whipstitch trim and covered platform. They’re available in wisteria at Farfetch and Giuseppe Zanotti or mint suede at Amazon & LuisaViaRoma.
She premiered her latest single, “I Luh Ya Papi” wearing a monochromatic outfit including a silk ecru long sleeve blouse left open and layered with a white cotton high low casual shirt. With her hair styled in easy bohemian waves, Jennifer also accessorized with a Sydney Evan large script diamond Love necklace and pink lens sunglasses by Dita.
When 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!
