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!

gianvito-rossi-fall-2016-shoes

We’re currently receiving some form of disciplinary action. It involves complete submission to a squad of ready-for-fashion-battle shoes –and you’ll be answering the call of duty soon too, once you get your eyes on them. Together, let’s salute the Gianvito Rossi Fall/Winter 2016 collection –our new shoe heroes.

Rossi’s latest line of footwear is an homage to French and British military uniforms (along with its signature Italian craftsmanship, of course). Adorned with rich hues and regal embellishments, ankle boots and sandals are strikingly commanding –but with a feminine flair that screams elegance –perfect for the lady bosses and the style savants who are ready to conquer the world this fall.

gianvito-rossi-august-sandals

August regal velvet ankle-cuff sandal; available at Barneys and Neiman Marcus.

The collection is sharp and striking –reminiscent of the richly decorated uniforms of the Navy. The Augusta is a velvet gem. Blue, gold and garnet embroideries decorate the sexy stiletto sandal, while the midnight blue Miral bootie brims with fit-for-royalty details such as shiny gold buttons and satin red piping.

gianvito-rossi-miral-velvet-bootie

Miral velvet peep-toe with contrast trim; available at Barneys, MyTheresa and FarFetch.

The sensual shape of the slip-on loafer might just make you give your classic black pumps a long break. The Moret features a high vamp d’Orsay with naked sides, and a thin 105 mm stiletto heel. Your new power shoe, perhaps?

gianvito-rossi-moret-velvet-pump

Moret d’Orsay velvet pump with high-rise front; available at MyTheresa and Lane Crawford.

The Vendome Bootie boasts of a cage design that captures the frogging detail of military jackets. It consists of embroidered loops of black suede with gold stitching, creating a fierce yet ultra-feminine finish.

gianvito-rossi-vendome

Vendome lattice cage sandal in black suede and gold embroidery; available at Barneys and Montaigne Market.

Mink and lamb shearlings also add a fun and flirty touch to the collection. The Moritz is an eye-popping emerald suede bootie with a fur-covered front and a lace-up detail to the ankle –a gorgeous accent no doubt, to an LBD or a white tee and jeans combo.

gianvito-rossi-moritz-fur-boot

Moritz suede & fur boot with wrap-around laces; available at Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue and MyTheresa.

Gianvito Rossi’s Fall ’16 collection is an army of bold and powerful footwear that celebrate femininity and relaxed elegance. The only war we now have to fight is: How can we get our hands on ALL these shoes, stat?!

Shop Gianvito Rossi’s latest collection at Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Mytheresa and Gianvito Rossi.

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.

Giuseppe-Zanotti-Design-logoIt’s hard to believe that Giuseppe Zanotti’s twenty year road to success was not paved in stiletto-friendly golden cobblestones. He reminisced to WWD, “I started with stilettos that were superglam, superfeminine and sexy — and the business was a flop. For the first two or three seasons, it was a tragedy.” With the ink still damp on his LMVH partnership and an ever-growing fanbase, it’s hard to envision a fashion world bereft of his sleek and sexy footwear. It makes you want to go into your closet, pick up your favorite Zanotti stiletto – at least four inches high – and feel thankful that we live in an age of sass, verve, and sartorial savviness.

So, how does Giuseppe Zanotti celebrate twenty phenomenally successful years in fashion? Not with a tell-all book or autobiographical movie, but – as per our expectations from the Italian footwear maestro – with more shoes; a four part delightful capsule collection, to be precise. Taking inspiration from the past while looking to the future is innovative and clever, a way to pay homage to those who were with him at the start of his journey to new coming fans that can’t get enough of his trademark snake embellishments.

With the gorgeously glamorous Spring 2014 collection still fresh in our minds (and hearts, and dreams…you get the picture), we were wondering how those exotic and quintessential Zanotti themes would appear in an autumnal context. If we had any doubts that he still had it (we didn’t, this is hypothetical), they would have been swept away by golden snake-embossed leather slingback stilettos and gotta-look-twice red quilted leather moto heels.

Glitter, suede, and python-embossed leather – oh my! This collection is one to start budgeting for, carrying designs fit for every lifestyle and fashion twist. From the stunning geometric suede and rhinestone-embellished booty to the golden leafy filigree on an open-toed sandal; from the glittery flat boot to the crimson mule; just when you think Zanotti can’t top his last collection, he finds a way to make you lust after a pair of kitten heels. And, really, is that not real power? In addition to the flattering and statement making silhouettes, there is a plethora of dainty silver chains, buckles, calf hair, snake emblems, and gold plating to make sure that one look from onlookers will  have them keeling over in envy.

If these designs are any indication of the genius of Zanotti, we can only imagine the adept hand and skill used to craft his 40th anniversary. That’s just around the corner, right?

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.

This collection is now available at Net-A-PorterNeiman MarcusSaks Fifth Avenue, Barneys and Christian Louboutin,

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.

Christian-Louboutin-Big-Lips-boots-Diane-Kruger

Diane Kruger wore Christian Louboutin Big Lips boots to ‘The Host’ NYC screening. These thigh-high shoes debuted in the Fall 2010 collection featuring black suede and 120mm pin heel stiletto. This style is no longer available online however you can find the latest Spring 2013 styles at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Christian Louboutin US.

I love her Chanel pearl embroidered mini dress but wish she opted to save this look for next fall…(around September) since springtime just officially arrived. She also accessorized with several pieces from Stephen Webster’s Throne Noir collection including Thorn drop diamond earrings and bracelet.
