Alberto Moretti shoes: from fairytale to dandy

Flip through Alberto Moretti’s spring / summer 2013 look book and one thing will be abundantly clear: this is not a shoe collection that targets the safe and classic. Moretti’s shoes are scrolling gold, textured animal print, metallic snakeskin, embroidered suede; even covered in a rain of confetti sequins or dotted with nut-and-bolt like studs. They’re sometimes elegant and beautiful, sometimes quirky and whimsical.

They’re the kind of shoes that will transform you from a glamorous Cinderalla at the ball, to a flamboyant female Dandy.

The best and most widely appealing of Moretti’s collection are the most understated: a black high-heel with scrolling sheer mesh, a gold version that looks like it took decorating advice from the palace of Versaille, and some flat velvet slippers that beg to be the crowning glory to an androgynous look.

Keep an eye out for Moretti’s sneaky words of wisdom imprinted across the soles of heels, as you peruse the full collection at the thumbnails above.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
