Rupert-Sanderson-Berardi-sandals

I’ve already expressed my love for these Rupert Sanderson for Antonio Berardi sandals time & time again but now they’re finally on my feet! Sanderson’s single sole Elba pump was the celebrity shoe of 2013 and I truly admire his clean & contemporary design aesthetic. He really outdid himself with this scrumptious Berardi spring collection & his footwear reign is bound to continue – have you seen the following Fall ’14 collaboration?!

Ashley-Spiker-Spring-2014-sandals

I love the entire collection but my favorite style is the tricolor sandal in yummy pink, glossy apricot & mirrored rose gold leather. Although their official name is Tallyho, I’ve nicknamed them Saturn because of all the “rings” wrapped around my feet.

ShoeRazz-Spring-2014-designer-shoes

I took my usual sandal size, 37 and I’m super happy with the fit. It’s a whole lotta shoe with all of the straps but they’re surprisingly easy to put on. You can see from the photos below they have a slip-on elastic strap and looped velcro ankle-strap. They also feature a metallic gold covered heel breast, 110mm/4.3″ heel and almond-shaped toe.

You can find the style I’m wearing at Rupert Sanderson, LuisaViaRoma, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s. Tallyho is available in tan/red or black at Rupert Sanderson, ShoeScribe and Moda Operandi. You can also find the Corona in rose gold at ShoeScribe and Département du Luxe.

They’re my perfect spring sandal and I plan on wearing them everywhere until the end of summer.

Christian-Louboutin-shoes-for-Marchesa-Fall-2014

If New York Fashion Week had a line that epitomized romance and luxury, without a doubt it would be Marchesa. Since 2004, Georgina and Keren Craig have been designing and creating some of the most beautiful red carpet looks this side of Valentino. The sumptuous tulle and whimsical lace of Marchesa’s gowns were only complemented by the shoes, designed by none other than Christian Louboutin. From devilishly colored multi-buckle suede ankle booties to dazzling copper hued lacy pumps, as the show progressed the soles only became more enviable. The combination of calf hair and embroidery can only be classified as daring! It’s hard for us to pick a favorite, but we lovedthe concave wedge that – at first glance – made the models look like ballerinas standing en pointe.

Ruthie-Davis-for-Duckie-Brown-Spring-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

At first glance, Ruthie Davis for Duckie Brown sounds like a very peculiar combination. After all, Ruthie Davis has made her name by confronting conventions head on and changing them – her shoes drip with not only femininity, but sassiness. Her brand is all about modernity and romance without fussiness. And Duckie Brown? Duckie Brown is a brand dedicated to dressing men in dapper duds, this season marking the brand’s first foray into womanswear. The result was extraordinarily complementary; Duckie Brown’s menswear aesthetic fit beautifully with the clean, color blocked lines of Ruthie Davis’ playful jewel tone pumps. We can only hope this is the start of a long-standing collaboration.

Gio-Diev-for-Sally-LaPointe-shoes-Spring-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week

We are huge fans of Gio Diev’s sensual yet futuristic approach to shoes (hello! We’re still obsessing over his Spring 2014 collection!), so when we heard that he was going to be designing the shoes for Sally LaPointe’s Fall 2014 collection we could hardly contain our excitement. The ankle booties are one of the highlights of the collection, crafted out of supple leather, luxurious snakeskin, exotic stingray, and – just because everyone needs a bit of edge to their wardrobe – phenomenal calf hair. They’re practical, yet elegant. Perfect for adding sophistication to any autumnal look.

Rupert-Sanderson-for-Veronica-Beard-shoes-Spring-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week

There was something decidedly heady about Veronica Beard’s line this season – it could be the way the boho dresses dripped with California cool or the way the jacquard printed matching separates took you back to the best of 70s fashion. A fabulously fashionable collection topped off with sky-high Moiki heels by Rupert Sanderson, who always knows how to make a woman’s choice in footwear the talk of the party. The strappy heels appeared in three variations: not-s-classic black, space-age silver, and color blocked with pink, mustard yellow, and black.

Gianvito-Rossi-for-Altuzarra-shoes-Spring-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week

If we could sum up the Fall 2014 collection by Altuzarra, we’d have to put it somewhere between simplicity, luxury, and wardrobe staple. It isn’t surprising that the shoes from Altuzarra’s collection match that “wear me everywhere” vibe, because timelessness with a kick is what Gianvito Rossi specializes in. We love the take on a loafer-pump as well as the boots with cut-out accents. The natural color palette (greys, browns, and blacks) provides maximum accessibility and versatility – we can picture the ankle booties in the office as well as a dinner date with the girls.

Casadei-for-Prabal-Gurung-shoes-Fall-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week

Cesare Casadei and Prabal Gurung have been collaborating since the Spring 2013 season – it’s no mystery why they’ve kept the relationship strong: the shoes are consistently divine. This time around, Casadei created gorgeously bejeweled pumps exclusive for Prabal Gurung that perfectly blend Gurung’s tactile and experimental aesthetic with the feminine flair indicative of their brand. The shoes are one part costume jewelry, two parts menswear brogue, and all fierce. Coming in an array of colors, we can picture these statement heels taking the place of baubles any day.

Sophia-Webster-for-J-Crew-Fall-2014-shoes

Okay, we have a confession: we can predict the future. We can’t divulge all of the juicy details, but we are willing to tell you one thing – our bank accounts are going to be hurting and our wardrobes will be screaming in joy. Why? Because Sophia Webster’s latest collaboration with J.Crew for their Fall 2014 collection is utter perfection. Beautiful prints, color blocking, strappy pumps, and glittery heels are the star components of the collection. We’re not surprised that J.Crew’s prep-meets-edge aesthetic pairs so beautifully with Sophia Webster’s color, prints, and pizazz style, we just hope that the two fashion powerhouses continue to collaborate for years to come.

Jason-Wu-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Without a doubt, one of the most luxurious and supple collections of New York Fashion Week was brought to us by Jason Wu. Crushed velvet, fur, marled wool, and sequins so subtle that they catch the light like diamonds were only parts of the ingenious line. Jason Wu’s sumptuous collection was topped off with a beautiful t-strap pump, done in a few variations. The classic, wear-me-everywhere heel came in oxblood, mirrored silver, and a patent black (sometimes color blocked all in one style!). We also love the oxford ankle bootie that made an appearance – one part pilgrim, three parts runway heartstopper, it was a show stealer.

Rodarte-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Rodarte’s homage to the seventies, complete with Star Wars iconography and drawstring high-waist pants, is polarizing in its unabashed use of glitter and lurex. The kitschy, thrifty vibe was found from the top of the sparkly berets and down to the tips of the models’ feet. Modest buckles and sequined socks abound, the Mulleavy sister’s footwear is as unique as they are. If you’re not into their idiosyncratic reinterpretation of the flatform, they also have a collection of pumps that range from work-ready snakeskin beige to club-ready bejeweled turquoise.

narciso-rodriguez-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Narciso Rodriguez’ collection was a perfect meld of casual and sophisticated. The looks are slouchy without being sloppy and the overall feel is one of effortless minimalism. Even the footwear appears modest at first glance. However, the initial thought of simplicity is erased upon further inspection; though streamline and modern, the shoes are definitely a step above the rest. Dramatic takes on a d’orsay heel – the thick strap along the ankle is both fabulous and practical – and color blocked booties with supple leather and snake skin have us going back for another look.

Oscar-de-la-Renta-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Oscar de la Renta certainly knows his audience, creating stellar red carpet ready gowns and suit separates designed to become classics season, but this season left us feeling a bit cold. Luckily, where this season’s wigs were arguably horrible and many of the looks bored on the unfortunate side of matronly, the accessories were full of the spark and verve we’ve come to expect from Oscar de la Renta’s lux designs. Exotic and ornately patterned laser cut leather? Check. Embellished heeled sandals? Check. Feather and bead embroidered platforms? Check, check, check. They’re so classy and so chic, you’ll by opera tickets just to show them off.

Alexander-Wang-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Alexander Wang’s utilitarian collection met head on with state-of-the-art techniques (color changing leather? Be still our fluttering hearts); the outdoorsy sentiments were irrevocably high fashion, making it another iconic collection from the flourishing designer. His shoes received the same amazing treatment. The exaggerated height of the over-the-knee boot – done in a gorgeous combination of mid-tone brown and black with a shock of pure white – have a practical vibe that make them beg to be worn during your city’s next Snowmageddeon. Wang also created a peculiar take on the mule, with a thick heel and a very overstated vamp. They might not be for everyone, but man are they cool.

Monique-Lhuillier-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Leave it to Monique Lhuillier to create a show that practically drips with femininity, from the floral embellishments down to the lacy ankle and knee-high boots. We love how, when other designers seem bent on modernizing and streamlining their collections, she remains unafraid to revel in the frivolity. Candy pink sandals embellished with lace? Well, yes, if you insist! Also worth mentioning? The dramatically shaped d’orsay pump, constructed partially out of PVC to hold its theatrical silhouette.

Diane-von-Furstenberg-Fall-2014-shoes-New-York-Fashion-Week

Diane von Fürstenberg’s collection was classy with an edge, filled with pieces that would seamlessly go from day-to-night without so much as a jacket change. However, our favorite part of the collection wasn’t the eclectic prints or sensible totes, but the crazy amazing selection of pumps and wedges. Dramatic suede heeled sandals were accented with gold leather piping, mesh was embellished with darling suede hearts that scream “don’t just wear me on Valentine’s Day, wear me everywhere!” and modern looking wedges that were completed by a stellar mirrored gold heel. Black, gold, and red is a timeless combination – Diane von Fürstenberg just gave it a kick of sass.

Marissa-Webb-shoes-Fall-2014-New-York-Fashion-Week

The sensible schoolgirl aesthetic of Marissa Webb’s collection was given a much needed dose of attitude via kickass footwear. High stilettos with snaking laces that would make Roberto Cavalli proud and gorgeous blocky ankle booties might seem dour in color, but are jam packed with attitude. Suddenly, tweed doesn’t seem so prim and proper!

Jerome C Rousseau’s work with Lela Rose this season marks his very first – we know, it’s hard to believe that he’s not on every NYC designer’s speed dial! – runway collaboration and to soaring success. The eclectic vibe of Rousseau’s shoes perfectly matched the quirky edge that Lela Rose used in her collection (think: feathers, gem embellishments, sequins, and ombre hues). Though we love the metallic ombre glitter booties and his tell-tale thorny heel, our favorite shoe from this collaboration is the mesh peep-toe bootie. Swoon!

Jerome-C-Rousseau-Lela-Rose-Tania-Spinelli-Emy-Mack-shoes

Katya Leonovich’s Fall 2014 collection was all about futuristic, science fiction designs with a very seductive kick. Metallic, semi-sheer dresses and oblong silhouettes were complimented by sleek soles from Tania Spinelli. We love the amazing selection of boots she provided, thigh-high to ankle, lush suede to shiny gunmetal – we almost paid more attention to them than the line of clothes (woops!). But, we’re not surprised that we love the shoe selection; when Tania Spinelli is doing the designing, you know the product will be amazing.

Jimmy-Choo-logoJimmy Choo is one of the most sought-after shoe brands out there right now, with each design being positively stunning and each season being perfectly on-trend. For the 2014 Cruise collection, it’s business as usual and the line is practically bursting with handmade, gotta-have designs.

As expected, the collection’s stars are strappy high heeled wonders, whether classically done in monochromatic supple suede, playing with color blocking (like our favorite tri-colored Sunday style), imbued with dazzling metallic leather, or going completely out of the box with a mixed media sandal complete with a colorful PVC panel. That’s really what makes this collection special – the materials used. We can’t get enough of the delicate pastels, the perforated white leather mixed with dramatic contrasting trim, sparkling petrol-colored glitter, shimmering leopard print, and iridescent leather transforming traditional pumps into head turners. These unique uses of materials enhance the shape of every shoe and elevate it to a new level of sophistication and playfulness.

Judging by the old film star sex appeal of the campaign – specifically citing the free spirited and carefree attitude reminiscent of the 1960s Brigitte Bardot era – it was expected that the sleek sophistication we associate with Jimmy Choo has been embellished with whimsical, strappy attitude. Nicole Kidman stars in the cruise campaign, rocking blow-out waves and lensed by Camilla Akrans. Behind the scenes, the Hollywood star gushed, “I really enjoyed being able to play a role that was playful and free of any inhibitions referencing iconic actresses from the ‘60s. I embraced the feeling of summer holidays spent at the beach where you always feel up for a dare and having fun.”

Cruise looks have already been spotted on Krysten Ritter, Katy Perry, and Jennifer Lawrence. Jimmy Choo’s pastel gelato heels are a perfect way to inject the fall and winter greys with verve and spice. What are you waiting for? Order a pair now and delight in the happy vibrancy and effortless style it adds to your wardrobe.

Christian Louboutin has been unveiling the latest spring collection a little differently this season. Instead of having the usual countdown and hosting an interactive look book on his web site, they’re slowly releasing new designs through the e-boutique.

The spring styles are always brighter, more playful and I think this is one of the more wearable collections. It’s a mix of media madness (a trend in shoes this season) balanced out with several feminine, classic designs (such as the V-Neck, Flo).

We’ve already seen Jessica Alba wear the June slingback, Gemma Arterton in the Fifi Spikes and Jessica Biel wore the V-Neck in ELLE.

I like the Pigalle stripes, colorful Diptic bootie and nude Fifi Spikes.

**You can shop the latest styles online at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Net-A-Porter.**

Jimmy-Choo-Taste-Sandal

Jimmy Choo Taste sandal | 120mm or 4.8″ heel | buy online for pre-order at Jimmy Choo US, Jimmy Choo UK, NordstromNeiman Marcus & Bergdorf Goodman for $995

Taste is from the latest Cruise 2013 collection and first worn by Kristen Stewart this summer. It features a tapered t-strap finished with invisible wire straps and back-zip closure. At first I wasn’t sure about the clear straps however I then saw it on Ginnifer Goodwin and Elizabeth Banks and have completely warmed to it.

Half sizes are available and it also comes in orange suede which you can find at NordstromJimmy Choo US and Jimmy Choo UK.

This suede ruffle style debuted in the Fall 2012 collection and was carried over in new colors for spring. They feature a ruched chiffon ruffle along the back of the heel, almond toe and signature angled platform. Britney Spears was spotted wearing the dark teal color on ‘X Factor’.

Also in ocean blue/purple or black/dark gold:

How Moda Operandi works: Each trunkshow run for 3-7 days where you can pre-order the styles (many pieces will never be available in stores). You pay a 50% deposit and the other half is due when the item is ready to be shipped. The Nicholas Kirkwood trunk show runs until October 29 at 11pm EST.

There are many more Spring 2013 styles available for pre-order too. If you can’t wait until spring, this ruffled pump is also available in black suede (fall collection) at Net-A-Porter and in a bootie at MyTheresa.

alexander-mcqueen-pre-spring-2013-collection
This pre-spring collection is the perfect precursor to the bee-inspired spring collection that we just saw presented last month at Paris Fashion Week.

The classic styles: the horn-shaped heel and skull peep-toe pump, are designed in bright orange, yellow & red. There are also several white leather designs and lucite sculpted heels.

My favorites styles are the simple ankle-strap sandal, snakeskin t-strap platform sandal and the chain-embellished gold ankle-strap sandal.
