It’s no secret that of all the fashion things a girl can own, shoes are my favorite. Shoes are my Zanax. Shoes are my style saviors.
Shoes never let you down. Gain a few pounds and your jeans mock you, your dresses threaten to suffocate you and your shirts refuse to button. But your shoes, your shoes will love you no matter what.
That’s why each new season (Fashion Week season that is) I can’t wait to see the shoes and the runways for Fall 2015 did not disappoint.
From Rebecca Minkoff’s rocking fringed boots and booties to Monique Lhuillier’s sexy ankle straps, Suno’s chunky heels and Altuzarra’s witchy lace-up booties all the shoes were amazing. The toes were round, pointed and open; heels were chunky at Coach, Christian Siriano and Miu Miu, spindly on Prabal Gurung’s impossibly femme-fatale pumps, curved at Donna Karan and architectural at Jason Wu. At Saint Laurent, Giambattista Valli, Chloe and March Jacobs laces wound up the ankle and the leg.
Styles were, happily, all over the place — sporty thick platforms, ankle straps, loafers, even knee-high lace boots and up-to-the thigh moto boots. The choice is more eclectic than classic for fall with lots of call backs to the seventies, the Art Deco 20s (Ferragamo’s arty sandals), 80’s; even the 2000’s with pony manes at Christian Siriano and 3-D embellished heels at Rochas.
Will it mean you’ll have to spend a little to freshen your shoe wardrobe? Maybe, but isn’t it worth it?
Ciao for now!
