Louboutin: the perfect flat shoe for every skin

By marzo 31, 2016 FASHION, NEWS

Everybody is talking about it. Louboutin has increased the nude collection introducing a new model called Solasofia and two different skin tones.

We’ve already talked about this lovely collection last year. If you missed the post check it out here!

When we talk about nude, we normally think at a “pale” skin tone. And we are wrong!

Christian Louboutin won’t listen when you describe ‘nude’ as a pale skin tone.That’s why he decided to create a special collection for ALL women who wanted to wear a nude shoe. Following the 2015 trend, a new season’s ballerina flat called Solasofia, joins the already-popular Senora, Pigalle, Deepik, Fifi and So Kate.

The new ballerina is available in 7 different skin tones and is made of a soft flexible nappa leather which creates a natural sensation on the feet. We absolutely love it.

Mid-heel shoes: comfort is back!

By marzo 11, 2016 FASHION, NEWS

Strange but true: following years of platform shoes and stilettos designers are going back to low heels, not higher than 2.5 inches.

Shoe addicts are definitely going to be taken aback. Especially those who love to collect towering heels they are probably able to keep on for a couple of hours or so. Or in case someone is going to pick them up at home and drive them straightly to their restaurant seat.

For day or night, we are pleased to announce we have spotted some mid-heels walk down the 2016-17 Fall/Winter runways.

A thin, tapered heel is usually favored, alongside a spool heel, definitely more wearable and comfier than any 4 or 6-inch heel. Besides, it’s a ‘democratic’ solution for those who have (or choose) to wear heels all day but want to look good without too much pain.

To add a special touch to the look, pick original designs like zipped or buckled booties, embellished with crystals, stones and laces. You will stand out in the crowd despite your low heels. Comfy is back!

ADIDAS: THE WORLD’S FIRST SHOE UPPER MADE OF OCEAN WASTE

By ottobre 8, 2015 NEWS

This is a post different from the others, but we had to talk absolutely about this new project by Adidas. The German company is taking the phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” to a whole new level. They’ve teamed up with Parley for the Oceans, an organization that aims to raise awareness about ocean pollution. On June during “Oceans. Climate. Life.”, a talk hosted by United Nations and Parley for the Oceans, Adidas unveiled the world’s first shoe upper made solely from recycled ocean waste and illegal deep-sea gillnets.

To retrieve the nets, Parley partner organization Sea Shepherd tracked an illegal poaching vessel for 110 days, off the coast of South Africa. Though the bright blue and white shoe is currently a concept shoe, more consumer-ready products made from ocean plastic waste will be revealed later this year.

It will be produced starting from 2016!

By luglio 13, 2015 NEWS
gallery-1435433893-louboutin3

Christian Louboutin has taken another look at the ‘nude’ shoe, and is offering customers a different choice of colors to match their skin tone.

For a long time we’ve been describing shoes as ‘nude’, without thinking twice about what exactly ‘nude’ means.

Now the French designer has stepped in with a range of new nude shoes, hitting select stores this month, designed to more fully match a range of human skin colors. Five classic Louboutin styles have been reimagined in five new nude shades from a light blush to a dark chestnut color.

There’s also an app, called Louboutin Shades and available on the iTunes app store, which asks you to take a photo of your foot and matches your skin tone to the appropriate ‘nude’ shoe accordingly.

In fact this one of the range of nude colors is a growing trend.

You can find the entire collection here!

 

Vic Matié S/S 15 – Steel heel

By febbraio 26, 2015 FASHION, INTERVIEW

“With this collection we wanted to create contemporary objects which could still remain beautiful during the course of the years and fashion at the same time. Today more than before the activewear trend is recognisable in our shoes and it’s wisely mixed with feminine details and models”. This is what Silvia Curzi the Vic Matié’s Art Director said during the presentation of the 2015 Spring/Summer collection.

The collection is composed of unique pieces with a futuristic look and simple lines; it is conceived for a modern woman which loves to make a difference. It features square toes, rubber soles, optical uppers and metallic buckles. As for colors, tones are mainly neutral, cold but intimate, with a touch of blue, green and red giving a sense of summer to the collection.The way they mix natural precious leather such as nabuk, calf, python and hand aged leather with futuristic elements is extraordinary and the steel heel shoe is the example.

Common feature of the Vic Matié collections is the modern metallic heel. It is an hand curved and hand applied heel which represents the brand’s distinctive feature. The result of the steel heel shoes is absolutely lovely; combined with simple lines and natural materials it gives that touch of femininity to those women who wear them. You can find the steel heel both in the high and in the low version but with two different shapes. The 11 cm tall high one in fact has a curved shape that creates a “line” starting from the heel counter, while the 7,5 cm low one has an angular construction. Anyway you can better appreciate their shapes in profile.

All the shoes of the 2015  Spring/Summer collection are already available on the Vic Matié e-shop, don’t miss them!

…and today Vic Matié presents the new 2015/2016 Fall Winter collection in Milan, via Archimede 6 from 4.00 to 8.00pm. During the event there will be a video installation by Karmachina featuring Micaela Ramazzotti and a live performance by Marie Fisker at 7.00pm!

Minna Parikka is a very talented shoe designer. She is 34 years old, she comes from Helsinki where she lives and you maybe know her because of the article of Vogue Italia. We are in love with her creations which are different from the shoes that are normally available on the market, that’s why we talk about this brand today.

Minna decided that shoes would have been her future when she was only 15. The brand has  a glam rock boldness style which mixes strong design (she is very famous for the rubbit shoe) with eccentric colors , strange accessories and quality materials. The Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection is the emblem of her style: bunny shoes, mousey shoes and big heel shoes are a must. It is a collection with a variety of models to choose from; sneakers, flats and waterproof boots for those who prefer comfort and high heel boot , high heel half boot and high heel pumps for those who prefer being sexy.

They are absolutely lovely and authentic because they make the difference… as her motto says: “MY DESIGNS ARE LIKE LOVE LETTERS FROM ONE SHOE LOVER TO ANOTHER. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO TAKE STYLE TOO SERIOUSLY” and we totally agree with Minna.

You can find the complete winter collection here; give a look!
