Cruise 2012 Shoe Collection: Christian Louboutin

8 Dec

As a confirmed high heels enthusiast, you would understand why I consider Mr Louboutin a genius when it comes to shoe making. I don’t agree with the man half the time, I mean, I didn’t say he was a shoe deity – much as he loves to think – specific ref. to the  YSL lawsuit. But hey, we agree on stunning foot candy, he just knows how to craft those heels.

The way they arch in perfection, the way he pushes the boundary of how high is high, bordering between classic simplicity and bejewelled beauty. With this collection, he takes mexican beading, metallic brights, jewels, studs and adds them to the mix. I’m particularly taken by the embroidered turquoise satin pumps, stunning.

Dsquared’s ‘out-of-the-box’ skeleton heeled shoes

29 Oct

My phrase of the moment is ‘pushing the envelope’ and these guys at Dsquared are living, breathing and intensely personifying it. I mean, I’ve seen them do the strangest, most out of this world things. The most outrageous display in Spring 2011 fashion month came from them with the transmogrification of a white shirt into a massive wedding dress.

Now, these very interesting shoes from their exceedingly creative stable deserves a blog post. From the Fall/Winter 2010 collection and currently retailing on their site, it’s the vertiginous skeletal skyscraper extraordinaire. Now this is one amazing design feat and i have to hand it to these guys, they take fashion beyond design to pure art.

Don’t ask me if i’ll be wearing these shoes. What matters is i am in great admiration of them.
