Christian Louboutin Aqua Ronda slingback sandal| 120mm/4.7″ heel | shop in white at Matches for $902, aquamarine or black at Neiman Marcus for $865 and several other styles at Christian Louboutin

Christian-Louboutin-Aqua-RondaAqua Ronda is definitely one of our favorite styles from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. We’ve previously written on our love for the aquamarine model but feel this just-released white style also deserves the spotlight.

They feature a slip-on slingback design, transparent PVC panels, glosssy white patent leather, tube-like padded leather straps (one has elastic sides), thin 10mm platform and nude leather insole. Half sizes are available.

Rita Ora was spotted out in London wearing Sophia Webster Oprah slingback sandals. They’re from the Spring 2014 collection featuring spearmint, pale lime yellow and coral leather, ‘Sweet Talk’ embroidered speech bubble at the toe, and beaded 100mm heel. Oprah is available in ‘Twinkle Toes’ at Neiman Marcus, ‘Girl Talk’ at Net-A-Porter or ‘Sweet Talk’ at Sophia Webster.

A day before she chopped her long platinum blonde hair into a chin-length bob, Rita arrived at Capital Radio Studios to promote her latest single. She paired a two-tone fur sweater by Just Cavalli with Ashish blue distressed denim jeans with iridescent sequins from the Spring 2014 collection.

Tabitha-Simmons-butterfly-printed-shoeIt’s hard to sum up Tabitha Simmons in a nutshell. In her youth, she was a stellar fashion model that successfully transformed her career into a must-have stylist, styling runway shows, lookbooks, and editorials for massive names such as American Vogue, Rag & Bone, Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana. Her pleasant demeanor and behind-the-fashion-scene acumen sent her career on a sky-high trajectory but Tabitha didn’t stop there. Her voracious appetite to try new things and artistic eye led her to pick up another avenue in the fashion industry: shoe design. Naturally, she and her brand have flourished. With that in mind, if we were to accurately describe her in three words, it’d probably be: Fashion’s Wonder Woman.

Since starting her brand in 2009, Tabitha’s footwear has been widely and warmly accepted by the fashion industry. Her Spring 2014 collection is as strong and lush as we’ve come to expect from Tabitha’s aesthetic, which is to say: everything we could ever want and more. Unmistakably feminine, confidently daring, it’s hard to pick a favorite.

Tabitha-Simmons-striped-LB-sandalThe silhouettes range from sleek to quirky, strappy to minimalistic - giving plenty of options for any walk of life. We love how she’s not afraid to play around with heavier shapes and despite the season, even adding in a signature calf hair boot. Sugary sweet themes, such as thin baby blue stripes or candy colored glitter, are balanced out by the undoubtedly dramatic – we’re talking snakeskin, perforated eyelet leather, and crystal covered bows.

We particularly gravitate to the Bailey fully crystal embellished sandal and the handful of designs that are printed with colorful butterfly designs on woven silk. They’re the perfect blend of classic and sass which make for the ultimate statement shoe.

Though the heels are high and the impact is bold, Tabitha never designs without comfort in mind. She understands the daily routine of a woman on the go and knows the importance of wearability, no matter the style or height. After all, we find it hard to believe that Tabitha herself is in one place at one time for more than five minutes – why shouldn’t style travel alongside comfort? We can’t ask for a collection of shoes more perfect than hers.

Jerome-C-Roussea-Jude-embellished-peep-toe-bootieWhen you think of Jerome C. Rousseau’s collections, the mental images you conjure should be as vibrant as they are intriguing and as bizarre as they are gorgeous. Remember his Fall 2013 collection? Studs, color blocking, glitter, floral velvet, and bondage straps (sometimes all working simultaneously!) elevated his ultra-high heels to new, quirky heights. However, with new seasons come new inspirations, and we’re very excited to report that the Spring 2014 line from Monsieur Rousseau is a veritable Technicolor wonderland.

Whether you’re into cork-infused pumps, perforated suede, strappy snakeskin, or – yes, you’re reading this right – glittery python, Rousseau has your feet covered and all done with his signature architectural flair.

The crowning jewel of the collection is the embellished bootie – the base of which is his phenomenal Juda model in gorgeous green leather (the color is somewhere between minty mojito and saturated sage) with lemon yellow leather mesh. From the supple leather base, over 7000 beads are carefully hand-applied by Los Angeles artist Emily J. Snyder, including coral, freshwater pearls, and vintage Czech crystal. The booties mirror Emily Snyder’s aesthetic perfectly, with each vibrant clusters of beads combining to create a sole-ful rainbow that will never fail to grab attention.

If you want in on the beaded Juda fun but don’t want to wait 60-75 days for the custom application (or maybe you’re just afraid of a wayward snag hitting your beautiful new booties), the open-toed shoe also comes in a printed silk design complemented by metallic golden leather. Juda is one of Rousseau’s design staples and available in several other stellar designs, like woven leather, animal printed calf hair, and even a leather laser-cut rose motif.

As if the collection couldn’t get better, he has also released a line of clutches and handbags that mirror the themes of his shoes. It’s time to retire your well-worn clutch and invest in one of his statement making minaudières!
