ValentinoRockstud sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Barneys for $1,295
My heart swoons for these new lace-up sandals from the signature Rockstud collection by Valentino. This spring designers debut an extreme gladiator trend seen more extravagantly done by Gianvito Rossi and continued by with the beloved Amazon sandal. I so love this nude sandal featuring corset-style lace-up front, gold-tone pyramid studs, long wrap-around laces and back-zip. You can also find them in a beautiful pale gold at MyTheresa and black at Montaigne Market. Half sizes are available and it’s designed in a flat variation at Net-A-Porter.
Guess what’s back in stock?! This is our go-to heel and the nude patent leather is perfect for the summer season. So Kate debuted a few seasons ago – appropriately named after Kate Moss. Between this and the Pigalle pump, it’s easily our most worn style…’cause sometimes classic is best.
Resort, Cruise, Pre-Spring – whatever you call it, I like it! These inter-season styles are a welcome change after a gloomy winter filled with heavy boots. Cruise is now one the biggest and most important seasons of the year for both retailers & brands (including Chanel!).
The yummy colors are a breath of fresh air and designed for frolicking around the Caribbean or other tropical destinations. Many times I much prefer the playful cruise styles over the spring collections. This season is delicious as ever with Jimmy Choo’s pastel gelato heels and Charlotte Olympia’s Sweet Talk confectionary creations.
Here’s a look at some of my favorite new resort arrivals:
Le Silla sandal | 4.3″ heel | buy online at Stylebop for $905 and in nude, red & black at Le Silla
