We are slightly obsessed with the Giannico Spring 2016 collection by Nicolò Beretta. One of the obvious standouts from the collection is this signature Picasso Mule slip-on heel featuring striped yellow silk, baby blue leather, thin buckled front strap with geometric leather floral embellishments. Half sizes are available (shipping out March 15). Keep your eyes posted, we’re featuring our review on the entire spring collection tomorrow!
With a campaign that showcases models contorting their bodies into rather, unusual poses while brandishing fine footwear that are just as extraordinary, you can certainly expect an unforgettably fun and playful collection. Bionda Castana, known for quirky and uniquely-adorned shoe designs stamped with an homage to Italian craftsmanship, has put forth a stunning Spring/Summer collection that lives up to the label’s panache for modern edge with a hefty dose of London cool. From fringed booties, to crystal-embellished flats and ultra-feminine pumps, there’s a pair to match every style and mood.
Take a closer look at some of the collection stand-outs:
The Gia ivory polka dot lace pump is a ladylike shoe that certainly makes a statement, especially when paired with bold and bright prints. It comes with a sexy stiletto heel taking you from day to night, perhaps shopping with the girls then straight to a romantic party for two? This elegant and contemporary beauty will even make the perfect bridal shoe!
Dorothy would probably trade her ruby shoes for these. The Edwina raspberry square print embellished flat is the ultimate ballerina shoe for the fun, free-spirited woman. It features a raspberry checker print accented with crystal detailing, and the pointed toe gives the shoe a powerful and edgy silhouette that will effortlessly punctuate a dress, jeans or a blouse and pants combo.
Wearing comfy flats will never be the same again once you try the Aian tassel flat in pretty cornflower blue suede. According to the label, these shoes become richer with age. Handcrafted in Italy, it has that irresistible old world charm, but updated with a super chic, cornflower blue color and flirty tassels. They’re the perfect pair to do some catchy color-blocking with your shorts, mini dresses and other warm-weather ensembles.
These gorgeous boots were definitely made for walking –or running, strolling, frolicking, dancing –any excuse to slip these on. The Sahar tobacco calf suede fringed bootie creates the perfect balance between sophisticated and fun. The neutral shade makes it a classic and timeless shoe, but its modern, playful fringe will definitely add more swing to your step.

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).

I love her shoes but this is nowhere near Kelly’s best…I also dislike the long extensions and prefer the textured bob she wore earlier this season.
She finished her look with black diamond chandelier earrings plus tons of diamond bracelets by Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira.
