It surprised me recently when I saw Pierre Hardy listed as a new designer at Net-a-Porter. Although I know intellectually that the designation only means that Hardy is new to the site, it still seemed odd for a brand that has been churning out great shoes for quite a while now. Hardy got Spring 2011′s color blocking trend exactly right, and now Pierre Hardy Fall 2011 is here to continue that trend.
Color blocking continues to be the word on the street, this time with the rich textures of fur and suede added to the normal shoe leather. The best of the bunch, though, is Hardy’s take on mirrored leather. Rose gold is a difficult metallic to match with colors, but the rose gold mirrored wedge with burgundy velvet trim is pitch-perfect and oh so luxurious. Easily one of the best designs I’ve seen for fall so far.
