Manolo Blahnik Resort 2014 Shoes (1)

So much of fashion is inspired by the natural world that it almost always makes sense to present it that way, even when it seems counterintuitive. After all, what do Manolo Blahnik’s Resort 2014 shoes have to do with kale or dried grass or chili peppers? Not much, admittedly, but the combinations make an unexpected amount of sense when photographed together for the collection’s Saks debut. The six photos feature Blahnik’s newest designs against widely varying natural backdrops, and the context brings out the beauty of the shoes in every instance. Check out all the photos below and shop the new Blahnik collection via Saks. Read More…

Balenciaga Indian-Print Leather Trainers

Your running shoes have been given a facelift thanks to Alexander Wang at Balenciaga with these Indian-Print Leather Trainers. Luxury sneakers are growing ever more popular; I even saw Chanel running shoes at Saks a few weeks ago. And naturally, we all remember the particularly colorful Gucci sneakers we wrote about recently (or maybe you wish I didn’t).

Sneakers are not normally my go-to shoe; in fact, I hadn’t looked at my converse sneakers in years until I decided to clean out my closet recently. Read More...

Jimmy Choo Anouk Holographic Pumps

The angle from which a shoe is photographed can be super important. We’ve seen (and written about) the Jimmy Choo Anouk Pumps a zillion times, but Net-a-Porter’s recent switch to using a straight-on side shot of shoes as their default product images has given us a whole new perspective on the design. We already knew these shoes were the tallest of Choo’s classic single-sole pump designs, but wow, they’re really, really tall. Read More...
