I am having Veruca Salt-cravings for a cat hat, Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker. In fact, I think all of your designs for PPQ Fall/Winter 2011 are exceeding brilliance. The accessories alone were wholly covetable: platforms with feathers and fine fabric features, ice cube-sheathed evening bags, mega buttons, and more! While the bonkers eclipsed the show, there were some sublime pieces with simple silhouettes. Deep down, everyone wants to be a PPQ girl. See the top five looks below! View Post
Alice + Olivia presented their jazz-age collection in the grand entrance of the Plaza Hotel: we’re knee deep in cool points. The flapper-inspired collection was so delightful and verdant, that the Plaza’s own Eloise would indeed have been enamoured. Designer – and the gorgeously pregnant – Stacey Bendet gets extra credit for putting the newfangled Gatsby girls in sky-high platforms. See the top five looks below! View Post
An extensive collection of Vivienne Westwood shoes from across four decades will be shown in Selfridges’ Ultralounge this week! For the first time in the UK, the iconic British fashion designer will showcase nearly 200 of her most stunning shoes – from her old archives to her newest collections – in Vivienne Westwood Shoes: An Exhibition – 1973-2010.
Opening on August 26th with free entry, the exhibition traces Vivienne Westwood’s exceptional career to date and some of her most memorable designs.
“Shoes must have very high heels and platforms to put women’s beauty on a pedestal.”
She paired it with a matchy-matchy small Chanel clutch and my dream shoes – in regards to platforms with cats on them – from Miu Miu Spring 2010. It’s a definite accesory win.
