2. Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte
As the collection move back to their roots and toned down their fantastical and yet complicated patchwork of sewing, the clothes are definitely more structural with a sharp clean cut. Yet, by using wood crafts, golden embroidery, 70s pumps, thick wedges, their shoes from Nicholas Kirkwood are definitely continue with their fantasy.
This illusion killer heels is definitely worth buying it for a killer moment. The first time I saw these shoes I thought there are no support under the sole but actually there is an transparent acrylic cleverly supported under it. The metal embellishment is extraordinary killing and forget about the pain, just enjoy the killing moment. The other pair is without the acrylic, but the L metal stiletto is just killing again!
4. Maison Martin Margiela
Their accessories always famous for its humorous element. This time they play around with the topless illusion. It’s very clever to play around with it by just supported with a nude strap. But there is a concern that when it rains, the shoes is definitely not worth for wearing in that condition.
5. Pierre Hardy for Balenciaga
English rock chic, woman as man, is the whole theme of the collection. This time Pierre Hardy using metallic material to play around this theme. Also, the cutout of the boots are very wearable and very Balenciaga. What I mean is very strong femininity with a slight of masculinity.
6. Giambattista Valli
Flats is so hit this season, Marc Jacobs, Marni, Missoni… are doing flats. Giambattista Valli is also doing flats, but the metallic cover is so damn fierce and making the foot much more slimmer. It’s also available in Leopard print which is so hit this and next season.
8. Christopher Kane
Neon lace, contrast colors is what you can see in his collection this season. The shoes reflect that also, using contrast muted neon colors as the element of the shoes. I am also loving with the knots at the back and also the strap around the ankle.
9. Viktor & Rolf
This season they focus on collar, but their shoes are mainly focus at 70s pumps. But the hot killing red is definitely worth for a look and the jade green is also a lovely color to choose for.
