Christian Louboutin Roland Mouret Cage and Curry Woven Pump ShoeRazzi

Christian Louboutin X Roland Mouret Cage and Curry pump | 3.5″ / 85mm heel | available at Net-A-Porter, Matches and Christian Louboutin.

Christian Louboutin designed these pumps with Roland Mouret’s Spring 18 runway collection in mind. These Cage and Curry pumps give a artisanal mood with a bit of striking flare. They are hand-woven using a traditional knotting technique and underpinned with delicate mesh. Made in Italy from soft leather they feature delicate thin straps which encase the ankle plus a walkable 85mm heel. Pair them with our favorite denim pieces from Fendi, Prada and Isabel Marant.

Noticeable Spring/Summer 2013 shoe trends:

Iridescence

This reflective technique was the first trend I noticed. Designers have used it on both snakeskin and patent leather. It’s also seen in Dior and Pierre Hardy’s collections (not pictured).

Stella McCartney seems to be one step ahead & if you can’t wait until spring, she designed a faux-leather iridescent pump available at Bergdorf Goodman.

Mixed Media Madness
There are several obvious examples of this mixed media trend and I chose designs featuring 3 or more different materials. The styles below are colorful and show the designers’ playful side.

For me, the combination of different textures & colors is a hit-or-miss. Christian Louboutin uses mixed media wildly throughout his collection.

Embroidery

I love embroidered details, they give a fun, special touch. Barbara Bui and Balmain have several styles completely embroidered whereas Rupert Sanderson & Isa Tapia feature parts of the shoe embroidered with tropical birds.

Nectarine

Looking through Style.com’s Accessories Index I’ve spotted several orangey tones. Then I saw nectarine listed on the Pantone Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report which has also migrated to footwear. Nectarine has a warm coral touch and is also a skin flattering tone.
