Anyone else’s jaw just drop? Rene’s son Edoardo has carried over the rich heritage of the family brand continuing to create truly beautiful shoes marrying Italian craftsmanship with couture. If you think of Caovilla shoes you immediately think of elegant crystal statement pieces! They continue to create the ultimate princess designs which have proved a perfect match for red carpet regulars including Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Garner.

This season’s ‘Day Dreamer’ Spring/Summer 2016 collection did not disappoint. We love this sexy staple “Guni” white pump amped up in signature M. Louboutin style – featuring a heel counter completely embellished with tonal leather covered spikes.

It stands out even more with the beautiful fishnet-effect lattice crochet overlaid on top of transparent nude mesh with glossy white patent leather detailing. It’s also stocked in brown marron glace at Neiman Marcus or black at Saks Fifth Avenue. Half sizes are available.

Amore-in-Lamore-Latin-for-GloryYou know she really can draw when her shoe sketches make you want to grab a 3D printer, stat. Gloria Hernando is a Miami-based artist whose vibrant and intricate illustrations –each one, truly a masterpiece –are housed under the brand LATIN FOR GLORY. We chatted with the talented designer to discover her inspirations and of course, to swoon over our common love –shoes!

When did you discover your love for art and eventually, illustrating shoes?
Art has been a passion of mine from a very early age. I was too young to realize it then, but my parents say that my innate talent for art has been apparent since kindergarten. I was a big fan of creating works of art on walls and floors with my mother’s lipstick. My inclination for shoe illustrations ignited as soon as I discovered fashion magazines (I still have a collection of Vogue cut outs from middle school).

How would you describe your shoe illustrations?
The objective of my illustrations is to capture the details and overall style of the shoes through realistic artistic techniques and my point of view. I absolutely love using color pencils because they give me the control I need to render the minutest element. Most of the illustrations I create are inspired by existing shoes, whether I have seen them in person or through publications such as Shoerazzi! I dedicate a lot of time researching and studying every facet of footwear collections before I decide on the compositions and essence of each drawing. I also illustrate my own designs however, the majority of my ideas remain within sketchbooks until the day I can produce them. For now a girl can dream!

Who are your favorite shoe designers?
The list of my favorite shoe designers is endless! I find inspiration in all types of styles andFlower-bomb-shoes-latin-for-glory both in established and emerging designers. At the top of my list are Charlotte Olympia, Dolce & Gabbana and Oscar de la Renta. These brands fascinate me with their creativity, magical storytelling, application of materials and acute attention to detail.

What do you find the most challenging part in your design process?
At the moment, the greatest challenge I face is making the time to illustrate every shoe that takes my breath away. From the minute I wake up to the moment I fall asleep, my mind is relentlessly dreaming of fashion and art. There are so many shoes to illustrate yet so little time! I am currently developing an art series, Running of the Bulls, which consists of large-scale and highly saturated drawings. Concept development and production of these pieces is time consuming to say the least.

Is looking outside fashion an important source of inspiration for your shoe illustrations?
Looking outside of fashion for inspiration is equally important as looking inside. Fashion is a tool of expression and has the power to relate to people across the map. That being said, I keep my mind, heart and eyes open to all the beauty around me whether it is the rhythm of a song, a book quote or a culture in a distant land.

You reside between Madrid and Miami. How does each city influence you on a creative level?
I have been residing between Miami and Madrid a little over a year now. It has been such a liberating and wonderful experience tying in my passion for travel along with the Kirkwood-illustration-Latin-for-glorydevelopment of my artistic career. Miami is my birthplace and will always be my hometown. It is an upbeat city, full of exuberant personalities, artistic venues and mesmerizing sunshine. My parents are both Dominican and I have that tropical and vibrant blood running through me. Madrid on the other hand is full of history, culture and also partakes in a high-spirited lifestyle that I love. It is truly inspiring in its romantic European nature and pursuit of happiness.

Have you always adored shoes? Describe your favorite pair.
I have been head over heels for shoes since I can remember! My outfits are always created from the feet up and allow me to express my personality without words on a daily basis. Heels prop me closer to the stars, fine-tune my posture and inevitably invoke a sense of power over my walk and my surroundings.

My taste in shoes is quite broad, but if I have to choose out of my closet, it would be the Parisian pair of black leather Walter Steiger pumps with his signature claw heel. Those shoes perfectly combine boldness through an architectural heel, classic sophistication and sex appeal.

What goals do you have for your designs in the next few years?
The goal with my illustrations is to continue collaborating with designers to render inspiring designs and foster creativity with pencil and paper. I want to work with Charlotte Olympia, Gianvito Rossi and Josep Font for Delpozo, just to name a few. The big dream is to one day turn my sketches into reality and create a collection of shoes that beautifully integrate art and design, while telling a unique story for women all around the world.

About the author: Romina Tobias is a freelance fashion and lifestyle writer who is also a hopeless shoe-addict. She 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). 

Fashion month may have officially wrapped up, but we still aren’t ready to double-air-kiss goodbye the shoes we spied on the Paris catwalks. So grab a box of macarons and enjoy our little runway recap of the most stylish shoes that dazzled in the City of Light.

Oliver Rouesting successfully showed how the female lines and curves can be celebrated even while completely covered up. Legs gained extra mileage with stretch suede boots that seemingly went on forever. The stilettos boots paired with opaque tights highlighted the sexy female form, without the skin doing a peek-a-boo act.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Lanvin

Matching the shiny brocade jackets, lacy tops and elegant evening gowns were chic and cool lace-up ankle booties with sneaker-like gold lace holes, pumps with chunky criss-cross straps and flat boots with button and snap details at the back shaft.

It was a great display of modern aesthetics on the Dior runway. Lace-up, pointed-toe boots got multiple treatments –croc and snakeskin with cut-out details make for awesome work-to-play shoes. Their ankle heel counterparts are just as fab with its laces and side strap combo. The color and print blocking action, mixing reptile prints with neutrals, make these stunning shoes a staple in your mixing and matching pursuits.

For club kids who always just want to have fun. Zebra-striped pixie booties were adorned with studs and the buckled flats were worn with matching socks for an overall boot effect that screams, 80s.

Your oversized ski jacket can now either be paired with go-go boots in your neutral color of choice, or satin pumps encrusted with sparkly accoutrements. And if you want your legs to be entirely covered in print, there are thigh-high boots for you with matching coats.

Ricardo Tisci has basically turned boots into pieces of clothing. The slender and sleek design either stopped at the knee or higher until it covered the leg like a pair of bottoms. Some sported nude toneswhile others in an edgier python print, accented with leather uppers flashing orange or gold hues. Metal heels also had a unique conical shape with graphic patterned in-lays.

It was the perfect mix of charm and chic. Low-block heels with a pointed toe in gray and white, make for the perfect professional shoe you can take to playtime as well. Leather pumps even got some leather trimmings and can definitely add a flirty and feminine touch to a power suit.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Giambattista-ValliGiambattista Valli
Classic and demure, feminine and fancy –fitting for the Parisian high society. Black pumps got extra strappy with its ladder-style, gladiator form. Black pointy flats were cutesy with its bow detail at the cap –we say “Oui” to its subtle and charming elegance.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-ChanelChanel
An equestrian theme would of course call for bucket hats with chinstraps and of course, riding boots. These tall riding boots with a cut-out detail at the ankle sported a wingtip brogue and dainty silver eyelets. In magenta, black, denim and gold, the boots were striking contrasts to the tweed jacket and coats draped with pearls.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-ValentinoValentino
The shoes perfectly matched the not-so basic, neutral color palette. A play on the classics –we are treated to heeled Mary Janes and strappy slingback sandals bedazzled with tiny crystals with matching ribbed socks. Then of course, the signature Rockstud ballet flats were also updated with the same iconic strap.

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Louis-VuittonLouis Vuitton
The Louis Vuitton woman for fall is a heroine with style and attitude, plus a street cred to match. Nicolas Ghesquière presented lace-front combat boots in high-shine black or blue, or infused with the sporty details of kicks (now you get to know what it feels like to wear rubber shoes with heels).

Paris-Fashion-Week-Fall-2016-Miu-MiuMiu Miu
The concept of “less is more” did not exist on the Miu Miu runway. Suede boots and satin pumps were super fierce with their pin-thin heels. Even the back of the pumps were accented with bows on the back. Fur slides a.k.a. our dream bedroom slippers got a dose of sparkle, with its sprinkling of crystals and pearls. A standout piece and something worthy to be displayed inside a glass case would be the brocade pumps with a one-of-a-kind structural embellishment on the back.

In addition to the blooming flowers, welcoming sunshine and green grass, strappy open-toe sandals are another sign that spring has sprung.

These will make you feel so stylishly invincible, you might just think you have nine lives.

The Afef series on the other hand, mirrors the mesmerizing embellishments found in the Sharqui dancers’ elaborate stage costumes. Be fashionably entertained with suede medallions in charming desert rose, safari, sand, mangrove green and savannah hues covering up the booties.

Almost every superhero must learn to fly. Get your own pair of ultra-fab wings with the Malikah series. Ankle-strap heels dedicated to the beetle, tower on classic 7 cm stilettos and 9 cm block heels –quite some chic amulets to wear, don’t you think? Surely, you can bravely face (or more aptly, step into) the world with these shoes, especially when they come in statement-making metallic emerald nappa, or glittered in shimmering gold or silver.

And if feeling a bit feisty (Meow….), the Isar and Mirtha series might tickle your fancy. With sexy bustier lace straps and taping on the ankle, these bondage booties and heels will help you tap into your inner dominatrix and then proclaim, just as Beyoncé would sing it: “Who run the world? Girls!”
