Tag Archives: Spring 2016 Designer Heel

Oscar-Tiye-logo-2016If Gotham City threw a party, where a candlelit room pulsed with the catchy, erotic beats of music and leather clad ladies are swaying their bodies to the sexy rhythm –that pretty much encapsulates the Spring/Summer collection of Oscar Tiye. Inspired by Egyptian Cat Goddess Bastet and Gotham City Sharqui dancers, the season’s elegantly shaped heels, fierce booties and alluring sandals adorned with an enchanting color palette, perfectly narrate the Italian label’s adventurous tale.

It’s a sensually-charged collection that screams “Girl Power!” Strong silhouettes with a subtle delicacy empower the footwear, making them luxe yet wearable –putting business women, fashion enthusiasts and nocturnal party-goers who are all ready to conquer the world under a sartorial trance. Come on, if you were to become a modern-day Cat Woman, wouldn’t you want to fight crime in a pair of fabulous heels?

Oscar-Tiye-Kitty-sandal-Cat-WomanTap into your feline prowess with the Kitty series. Black patent leather heels are stitched with striking silver, while loafers and flats in curry suede are laced up to the ankles, like dressed up whiskers. These will make you feel so stylishly invincible, you might just think you have nine lives.

The Afef series on the other hand, mirrors the mesmerizing embellishments found in the Sharqui dancers’ elaborate stage costumes. Be fashionably entertained with suede medallions in charming desert rose, safari, sand, mangrove green and savannah hues covering up the booties.

Almost every superhero must learn to fly. Get your own pair of ultra-fab wings with the Malikah series. Ankle-strap heels dedicated to the beetle, tower on classic 7 cm stilettos and 9 cm block heels –quite some chic amulets to wear, don’t you think? Surely, you can bravely face (or more aptly, step into) the world with these shoes, especially when they come in statement-making metallic emerald nappa, or glittered in shimmering gold or silver.

And if feeling a bit feisty (Meow….), the Isar and Mirtha series might tickle your fancy. With sexy bustier lace straps and taping on the ankle, these bondage booties and heels will help you tap into your inner dominatrix and then proclaim, just as Beyoncé would sing it: “Who run the world? Girls!”

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).
