Human feet aren’t geometric, they’re organic. So I always find it very interesting when a shoe is created with flat planes and geometric shapes. The bootie above by Gianvito Rossi is beautifully intricate, yet still uncomplicated because the pattern is created simply from a repeating grid.
There is one style that I will never grow tired of: black and white color-blocking. As much as I love colors and patterns, a neutral palette is something I always default to when I’m rushed in the morning or when I want to keep my outfits simple. It’s a timeless combination that always manages to look polished and chic. The Fastir pump by Enzo Angiolini is a beautiful, sleek shoe that would feel quite at home with all my other pumps. I’m dying to add it to my collection, but I think I’ll have to wait a bit considering I barely have room for the other recent additions to my closet. You can find this gorgeous pair at DSW, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
If you’re looking for shoes with an emphasis on form, materials and style rather than decoration and trends, Camilla Skovgaard shoes are for you. Her footwear is gaining recognition for the stellar combination of contrasting elements. Fluidity and severity paired with edginess and sophistication result in unique and interesting shoes with a lot of wow-factor. One of her trademarks is a saw-tooth sole, which adds an interesting twist to a lot of her more classic styles.
