I know it’s not even Halloween yet, however, Resort & Cruise 2013 styles are already rolling in! I still plan on posting many more fall styles however I wanted to feature new designs that have caught my eye.
Notes: One of the most talked about new shoe designers, Sophia Webster, has two new styles available online at Colette. More styles (these are actually Spring 2013) are also arriving at Net-A-Porter very soon.
I seem to always love Alexander Wang’s resort shoes more than any other season…I love the red-hot croc-embossed leather.
Brian Atwood’s new TriBeCa sandal is also available in blue at Nordstrom.
In case you haven’t heard, Jimmy Choo’s cruise collection is now available for pre-order on their website and a few shoes are also at Nordstrom.
This is the second season Natalia Vodianova has been the face of Weitzman’s campaign and the ads are stunning! There are many craveable fall/winter boots. My top three favorite styles are the Backflip bootie, Spats boot and Closecall boot.
The collection is quite large so I’ve featured some designs from their fall look book. Visit Stuart Weitzman’s web site to see more styles.
In addition, they’ve also launched their second Young Hollywood Cares Collection to help raise money for ovarian cancer. Brooklyn Decker, Julianne Hough, Nikki Reed, AnnaSophia Robb and Chloë Grace Moretz worked with Stuart to each co-design a footwear style. Proceeds will benefit Dr. Marsha A. Moses’ pioneering research in ovarian cancer.
This season they’ve also debuted a new ‘Walking After Midnight’ film series directed by James Franco featuring Petra Nemcova. It shows a young woman on a midnight fantasy stroll on the streets on NYC wearing one of my favorite styles, the Backflip bootie! This film captures the attributes of the Stuart Weitzman woman; independent, confident, sexy and playful in a visually seductive and intriguing way.
This is the first episode and the next three episodes will be released every “Weitzman Wednesday”. The entire film will go live on October 26th.
Remember Abby? She’s my sister/assistant extraordinaire and works with me on the web site. As you can imagine her love for designer shoes has now hit a new level especially since she writes about them 7 days a week. She also has this little adorable 5 month old monster and has to keep up with him.
Check out her new beautiful red leopard Backflip boots! They’re the perfect manageable height for her featuring a 3.25″ heel, red leopard printed calf hair, engraved metal plated heel, suede tassels and side zipper. These boots run true to size and have a tapered/pointed toe.
This past fall an employee at a McQueen store I was visiting “warned” me about the shoe prices this spring & she wasn’t joking. Last season, McQueen’s priciest wedge was over $4000 and this season, there are several shoes priced over $6000!
Kim Kardashian debuted the Kanye West x Giuseppe Zanotti sandals featuring embroidered pearls at Paris Fashion Week and Emma Stone wore the Lanvin Opanca sandal to the Golden Globes.
My sister Abby is in love with the Dolce bow pump & my favorite style is the Lanvin sandal.
