Art is brought to your feet in the latest collection of Yevrah-logoYevrah designers Jason Harvey and Erwin Sweetwine.

A six-year in the making concept that’s finally been brought to life with Elemental; a collection filled with boots, pumps and a very special flat, that takes women back to the basics on a journey of style, class, and art.

Yevrah-shoesWe interviewed the Atlanta-based designers to learn about the influence, inspiration of this up-and-coming brand.

> How was Yevrah born? What was is that made you get into the industry of women’s shoe?

Jason: We always just had that love and respect for one another on campus during college. The genuine relationship was formed when we both ran against one another in a Mr. Freshman pageant. The running joke has Erwin won Mr. Freshman and I became 1st runner up! It was such a great experience.

I’ve been playing around with footwear for about six years now. My wife, a model since 13 now 23, is also an artist who helped guide me in the world of designing. I was persistent and had great ideas but they were not wearable ideas. As time went along, the designs began to mature thus the brand finally came to fruition late 2016.

> I see this collection was heavily influenced by nature. What I like the most about it is that you were able to take this concept and make it unique. As designers, how were you able to achieve this?

Yevrah-heels

Erwin: Designing is an intricate process. With Jason being such an artistic person, we often have scaled down conceptual designs into wearable fashion. Honestly, that is what makes this experience so rewarding and fun. From choosing the materials to fitting and finalizing the collections, each step of the way required a lot of trial and error but seeing the collection manifest into Elemental was humbling.

Jason: Many cannot understand or explain what is called a gift at times. I’m just blessed with the ability to see things that are born from nothing. As a designer, it can be the most random things at times that will spark your imagination. A shadow can hit a branch in a specific way, and in my mind, I then spot a design and immediately get inspired.

Yevrah

> The collection is composed of 10 pieces that consist of pumps and boots, but amongst them is one flat, that I can say speaks for itself. It’s this great harmony of minimalistic, casual, elegant and I would dare to say even sporty. How did this particular style come into play? What inspired you in creating this shoe?

Stiletto-Pumps-YevrahErwin: Each design in the Elemental collection is intentional. The line really speaks to the women we hope will experience the brand. Jason constantly mentioned that he really loves the drawstring on shoes, so this incorporated in both the flat and mule gives a sporty yet edgy look. The style is very niche and versatile, and we know that women look for unique pieces to incorporate into their wardrobe.

Jason: Women are powerful and daring…but even the daring beauties at times want to level style out with comfort. That is how the Diver flat was born. I envisioned the woman to be chic and comfortable unlike its sister style which is greater in height.

> You’re both artists and this is a big part of your brand’s identity, so much so that you participated in the 2016 Art Basel in Miami, one of the biggest art shows in the country. Your website is called Art of Yevrah. What were some of the biggest artistic influences while designing the line?

Erwin: We envisioned the brand being a form of expression just like art. We started with a blank canvas. We literally had no experience in footwear. Partnering with Jason allowed the both of us to leverage our life experiences and to develop a brand that is hopefully here for many more years to come. Our inspiration is everyday people who enjoy being daring and different.

Jason: Life inspires me.. Art is life.. Art is expression, freedom.. with that being said- Power also comes into play with this. You feel indestructible when putting the brush into play. The canvas is empowering and life changing with every piece that you choose to create. It’s exhilarating but most importantly it heals.

Brown-pumps-Yevrah

> On your website, you state that your shoes incorporate unconventional materials, what’s the materials that take the biggest role in the confection of your shoes? That material that you believe is what sets you apart?

Erwin: The cork material is the most unconventional, complex materials to use when designing shoes. The material we used is actually imported from Portugal. A lot of people including our manufacturer said it sucks a risk using this material. We said: “Let’s do it! We have to make it work.” And we did! Jason and I are more than excited about the construction and quality of the shoes made of cork in this collection.

Embossed-pumps-YevrahJason: I would say cork… It’s tricky to use this kind of material at times because it is a dry material. It does not always agree with what you want it to do. You just don’t find many brands out here that are willing to risk this type of production.

> For now, your main focus is women’s line. Can we expect a men’s shoe line in the future?

Jason: For sure! It gets stressful sometimes not being able to wear all of this beautiful work! Yevrah is so full time at the moment I just cannot commit to creating the men’s line yet but, very soon. The gentleman will not be disappointed.

Erwin: Most definitely! We can’t wait to expand into the world of men’s footwear. As of right now, we don’t have an estimated time for when that will release but we have heavily considered it and know that is the direction we would like to move in.

Guest post and interview written by the lovely Natalia Rodriguez from Veneci Swimwear.

We love warm temperatures and gladiator sandals but have to admit that we’re definitely ready for the crisp air of autumn and closed toe shoes. It’s finally time to stash away the sandals and get ready to slip on the fall’s number 1 staple, the boot!

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.

About the author: Zenzhu is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. He thinks her 5’4″ height and her love for long walks make her deserving of all the stilettos, pumps, sandals and ballet flats in the world. If only the cupcakes she expertly bakes can be traded in for a new pair (or two, or hopefully, more). 

Christian-Louboutin-Allenissima-black-patent-leatherWhen it comes to modern, iconic footwear a brand that ceaselessly melds class and infectious sex appeal into every design, there is only one brand that (rightfully) springs to mind: Christian Louboutin. A designer so obsessed with his craft that he slept in his design studio for eight years while launching his career into stratospheric heights, it isn’t remotely surprising that he consistently delivers jaw dropping collections.

The Fall 2014 collection the one we had a glorious, if fleeting, sneak peek of back in March showcases Louboutin’s love of versatility, as well as his total adoration of fabulous, ankle-breaking heights.

Lovely floral prints, delicate laser cut filigree and strappy styles in both classic and rich suedes harken back to the iconic Louboutin image that grab celebrity ambassadors by the handful. Our favorite twist on the classic? Louboutin’s ingenious use of crackled metallic leather; we’d call it the new snakeskin, but judging from his pristine use of python in some of the other designs, we have to consider the gorgeous crackled metallic in a league all of its own.

One of the most notable silhouette additions comes from the dramatically corset-laced sculpted pumps, first seen on the Fall 2014 Marchesa runway. Initially inspired by ballet, the Conquilla lace-up concave wedges are one part kink and two parts please get in my closet,now. However, those aren’t the only soles to make a massive visual impact; for example, the Pigalle Follies Strass are crystal-studded masterpieces that we would possibly give up croissants for life in order to have. We also see candy-colored studs used elsewhere, both complementing metallic hues and floating atop of clear PVC.

Other gotta-look-twice features of the collection include lattice-like laser cut suede, oversized grommets accented with whipstitch trim and glitter infused sheer fishnet.

The brand that has forever cemented red-lacquered soles and Christian Louboutin’s legacy into the Fashion Dictionary (chicly sandwiched between Chloé and Coco Chanel) has done it yet again. Whether you’re a woman who gravitates to Louboutin’s classic and sleek designs, or if the mixed media AztecGalata, and Gortik designs are right up your edgy alley, this legendary designer has got you covered.

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.

Update: ***Check out the new Christian Louboutin Fall 2012 Collection***

Christian Louboutin’s Fall 2011 collection is filled with fur, buckles, studs and suede. I’ve complied the latest images found from his newest collection and will be updating this list as more styles are released & available to buy online. I still don’t know why, but I’m obsessed with the Alex lion paw pump! The Metalipp leopard print pony hair pump with the metal cap toe is also super hot. What are your thoughts on Louboutin’s fall collection so far? Are there any styles you’re adding to your wish list?

So far, I’ve seen Christian Louboutin’s new Fall 2011 collection available online at LuisaViaRoma (+ free shipping), Louboutin’s US boutique & select pre-fall styles at Bergdorf Goodman, Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus & Barneys.
