Mary Katrantzou is known for her kaleidoscopic patterns and exquisitely embellished prints, a signature aesthetic that will be transferred to Adidas sneakers and apparel. This collaboration features brightly colored collage-like patterns that are both feminine and vibrant.
It’s become a Monday morning ritual for me to check out the New Arrivals page of all my favorite retailers. How else am I supposed to ease back into the work week? I always hope I’ll find something that’ll take my breath away, and these Dolce & Gabbana Over-the Knee boots boots did just that, but not in the way I had hoped.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge recently attended the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala Dinner in London wearing a beautiful black Temperley dress and a matching pair of Jimmy Choo Cosmic Suede Pumps, which are a bit higher and dressier than the shoes she normally wears. These exact pumps can currently be found for $695 at Jimmy Choo, but I suggest you snatch them up quickly before a mob of rabid Duchess Catherine fans descends upon the brand’s website.
No matter what you decide to dress up as this Halloween, a great costume requires an equally great pair of shoes. We’ve found more than a dozen pairs that could be the focal point of any costume.
You may be inclined to wear some of these shoes beyond this creepy holiday, while other pairs will be best kept in a box, stored far away until next Halloween.
Shoes: Charlotte Olympia Monroe Unzipped Print-Heel Pump
Price: $920 via MATCHESFASHION.COM
Why It’s the Shoe of the Week: You may be surprised to find that these are Charlotte Olympia pumps, but they’re indeed a Charlotte Dellal creation. This black pump gets edgy with its zipper detailing and printed heel; if you thought you couldn’t turn to Charlotte Olympia for a basic black pump, you may want to think again.
Actress Michelle Monaghan recently attended the American Cinematheque Awards, where her True Detective costar Matthew McConaughey was honored for his contribution to the cinematic arts. Michelle hit the red carpet in a sparkling pair of mixed media Christian Louboutin Pina Spike Sandals. You can find these exact sandals for $1,045 at Neiman Marcus.
Louboutins are always a celeb fave for event carpets, but these sandals have a lot going on, and won’t necessarily mix well with other bold designer wares.
