Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps | 120mm/4.8″ heel | shop at Neiman Marcus & Nordstrom

Just as the new Pre-Fall 2016 collection begins to debut on the red carpet, several styles are now also available for online pre-order. We’re captivated by these bewitchingly ‘So Kate’ pumps which feel even a little villainish, no? They feature a beautiful emerald green marbled patent leather throughout with the signature sleek pointed-toe and thin stiletto heel.

Half sizes are available and you can find more fabulous styles from this collection at Christian Louboutin.

They feature sheer nude mesh paneling embroidered with whimsical two-tone blue swirly designs, contrasting black trim, arctic blue leather covered stiletto heel, mirrored silver leather toe and thin black leather halter strap.

Rupert Sanderson turquoise leather pumps | 110mm or 100mm heel | shop online at Bloomingdale’s and Rupert Sanderson

This refreshing hue is perfect for the quickly approaching warmer tropical season and my favorite color. Sanderson debuts a new pebble-effect leather technique which we think closely resembles shagreen. These classic pumps feature angel blue cracked leather, sleek almond-toe shaped toe and gold-tone covered heel breast. Half sizes are available.

Nicholas-Kirkwood-Logo-2016Known for shoes with sculptural forms and Italian sensibility, Nicholas Kirkwood launches an even more spectacular Spring/Summer collection this year. Aside from being equal parts practical and adventurous, the collection celebrates the 10th anniversary of the cult designer’s eponymous brand. More reason to snag a new pair of shoes, right?

Nicholas Kirkwood expertly pushes the boundaries of shoe design with its artistic craftsmanship along with its no holds barred approach to experimenting with cuts, silhouettes, colors and prints. No matter how edgy Nicholas-Kirkwood-Spring-2016-shoesand whimsical, there is that inherent elegance and sophistication that continue to mature with every collection. This season we see more revamped signature styles that play with unique lines, forms and contours, as well as more refined shapes from narrowed block heels to a dipped heel that give the shoes a voluptuous finish, reminiscent of the curvy pumps in the 50’s.

Although there are a lot of blacks and other neutrals, the collection features a kaleidoscope of super fun colors that will surely brighten up your ensembles. An energetic palette of cobalt blue, orange, fuchsia and turquoise decorate the collection, while suede, patent leather, python, mesh and laser cut details add contrast and texture to the fancy footwear.

Nicholas-Kirkwood-colorblock-suede-pearl-sandalFor color, comfort and an extra lift, the Maya pearl platform sandal fits the bill. The catchy color contrast along with the wedge heel and concealed pearl create a fun and fabulous shoe design you can wear from day to night.

Another one of our favorites is the wave Ava sandal which emphasizes Kirkwood’s use of negative space, with a silhouette that highlights both the visible and the invisible. The graphic form of the shoe, plus its sneaker lace up detail, make it perfect for any woman who knows how to have fun with fashion.

Shop the collection at: Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, and Nicholas Kirkwood.

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). 


Bionda-Castana-Spring-Summer-2016-collection

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.

Bionda-Castana-LogoTake 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.

Even more obvious than the painted cork trend, denim footwear is impossible to overlook this spring. From shoe maestro Blahnik to pacesetter , the industry brings us a playful spin on the classic jean twill.

From pumps to sandals, platforms to stilettos – each designer created a unique styles inspired by the blue Americana staple. Not only is denim is a reliable fabric perfect for everyday wear but it’s also an interestingly stylish shoe textile.

I particularly love Gianvito Rossi’s take, adding several denim designs to his spring collection which features a dark wash exaggerated with frayed patches. Both Fendi and Christian Louboutin combined a lighter shade with tropical floral printed leather. Jimmy Choo carries the most amount of denim styles this season adding a sleek contrasting black leather trim to several styles.

Zendaya Coleman wore Fausto Puglisi pumps to the 2015 Billboard Music Awards held in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. They’re from the Resort 2015 collection featuring aquamarine suede, sleek pointed-toe and 120mm heel. They’re available in leopard or geometric printed silk cady (on sale!) at LuisaViaRoma.

Wearing head-to-toe Puglisi, she paired a 3-piece look from the Fall 2015 collection including an animal-print jacquard stretch knit bra and leggings embroidered with Sicilian corals and Swarovski crystals paired with a printed silk blazer. She accessorized with a red camo-print mani and Antonini yellow gold ring. Zendaya also coordinated her pumps with aquamarine earrings by Jorge Adeler accented with half moon shape diamonds.

Christian-Louboutin-Azunika-mule-Spring-2015 (1)Fresh on the heels of the 10 year anniversary of the iconic Pigalle stiletto pump, Christian Louboutin’s new collection is a veritable bevy of sporty influence, rock and roll chic, and vibrant femininity that proves, yet again, why Louboutins are still the Go-To brand for every fashion forward fashionista.

The thing we love about Christian Louboutin’s Spring/Summer collections (other than everything) is that they are always unafraid of making a bold, colorful statement. From patent leather to PVC, from gotta-look-twice embellished wedges to the iconic So Kate in metallic python leather, the SS15 collection is all about putting your best foot forward and strutting with confidence. Though it’s difficult to narrow our favorite designs, we can’t stop looking at the incredibly vibrant fringe of the Otrot stiletto and the phenomenal new interpretation of the Mea Culpa that is done in a warm gold and polished off with an elongated and elegant curved collar vamp.

The Mea Culpa isn’t the only style that has had a bit of an update and we can’t take our Christian-Louboutin-Mayerling-sandal-Spring-2015eyes off of the unique revamp of Louboutin’s sexy signature stiletto, a curved vamp design that continues down to a serpentine heel. That striking wavy design appears in multiple iterations, such as the Dalida, theDeepik, and the Vagachina, but our favorite has to be the Dalidad’orsay design done in patent opaline leather — the curved heel and stitched motif makes it a must-have for the upcoming sunny months.

As if that wasn’t enough (we’re trying to contain our gushing), Louboutin’s 130mm is back and sexier than ever, replete with t-straps, colorful patterns, and peep-toes. We can already picture the sky-high platform pumps on the heels of Dita Von Teese and other style-icon daredevils!

Taylor Schilling wore Giuseppe Zanotti pumps to the Season 2 premiere of ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season Two premiere held at The Ziegfeld Theater in NYC. They’re from the Spring 2012 collection featuring mirrored silver leather and black patent leather cap-toe. They’re available in white patent leather at FarFetch or yellow patent leather at ShoeScribe.

The 29-year-old plays the lead role of Piper Chapman in the popular comedy-drama series. Taylor arrived wearing a noir multi skull print neoprene high neck bell sleeve midi dress from Monique Lhuillier’s ready-to-wear Fall 2014 collection.

She styled the look with sleek straight center-parted tresses, shimmery pink lip and oval-shaped Gisele Deux clutch by Thalé Blanc.

Check out more shoes spotted on Taylor.


Giuseppe-Zanotti-Design-logoIt’s hard to believe that Giuseppe Zanotti’s twenty year road to success was not paved in stiletto-friendly golden cobblestones. He reminisced to WWD, “I started with stilettos that were superglam, superfeminine and sexy — and the business was a flop. For the first two or three seasons, it was a tragedy.” With the ink still damp on his LMVH partnership and an ever-growing fanbase, it’s hard to envision a fashion world bereft of his sleek and sexy footwear. It makes you want to go into your closet, pick up your favorite Zanotti stiletto – at least four inches high – and feel thankful that we live in an age of sass, verve, and sartorial savviness.

So, how does Giuseppe Zanotti celebrate twenty phenomenally successful years in fashion? Not with a tell-all book or autobiographical movie, but – as per our expectations from the Italian footwear maestro – with more shoes; a four part delightful capsule collection, to be precise. Taking inspiration from the past while looking to the future is innovative and clever, a way to pay homage to those who were with him at the start of his journey to new coming fans that can’t get enough of his trademark snake embellishments.

With the gorgeously glamorous Spring 2014 collection still fresh in our minds (and hearts, and dreams…you get the picture), we were wondering how those exotic and quintessential Zanotti themes would appear in an autumnal context. If we had any doubts that he still had it (we didn’t, this is hypothetical), they would have been swept away by golden snake-embossed leather slingback stilettos and gotta-look-twice red quilted leather moto heels.

Glitter, suede, and python-embossed leather – oh my! This collection is one to start budgeting for, carrying designs fit for every lifestyle and fashion twist. From the stunning geometric suede and rhinestone-embellished booty to the golden leafy filigree on an open-toed sandal; from the glittery flat boot to the crimson mule; just when you think Zanotti can’t top his last collection, he finds a way to make you lust after a pair of kitten heels. And, really, is that not real power? In addition to the flattering and statement making silhouettes, there is a plethora of dainty silver chains, buckles, calf hair, snake emblems, and gold plating to make sure that one look from onlookers will  have them keeling over in envy.

If these designs are any indication of the genius of Zanotti, we can only imagine the adept hand and skill used to craft his 40th anniversary. That’s just around the corner, right?
