Shoes as art: Aperlai

Leave it to an accessory brand that’s inspired by artists like Picasso, Mondrian and Pollock to come up with a shoe collection that leaves women drooling. We all love our shoes: by putting on a lovely pair of shoes, you change your entire look and Paris-based brand Aperlai knows this. Staying true to the brand’s identity, designer Alessandra Lanvin has come up with a collection…

How James Bond’s shoes are made: weekend watch

Or rather, how Crockett & Jones shoes are made. But with SKYFALL just now hitting cinema screens, it’s hard not to get fixated on the fact that they’ve recently had the honor of supplying James Bond’s shoes. But if anything, James Bond is really just another marker that Crockett & Jones’ shoes are the kind that are meticulously made, sturdy, and classically stylish. You can…

The shoes worn by James Bond in Skyfall

There are worse things for your brand than landing product in a James Bond film – especially if you happen to be a purveyor of luxury cars, watches, suits or men’s shoes. For as much as the 007 franchise captivates both genders, it’s essentially the male dream that gets lived out on the screen with each new incarnation. And let’s face it, there are plenty…

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…

Jason Wu accessories have it covered for spring

If there ever was an accessories collection that hit the spot, it’d be Jason Wu’s spring 2013 line. From the offset we see a minimalistic and clean range, but if you look closer, Wu’s handbags and shoes are laced in ladylike fun. Tonal shades of eau de nil, cobalt blue, nude, almond and an interesting polka-dot-tights print make way for an addictive season. I guess…

Havaianas get gumboots for their 50th birthday

If you have a pair of flip-flops in your closet it’s very likely that they are Havaiainas, but with winter just around the corner it’s most likely exactly where they’ll stay. It looks like though the traditionally summer brand is not at all happy with this state of affairs and so, for the first time in their 50 year history, Havaiana’s have – to turn…

Fall’s pointed pumps: classic with a twist

It's a cliche but it's undeniably true: a classic pair of pumps will truly serve you both day and night. That's one of the beautiful things about the return of the pointed pump. Pair with a pencil skirt, skinny jeans or sumptuous lace frock: they're reasserting themselves as a fall must-have, and it's the colour and detail that counts. Read on for more.

Man-style shoes for women: a time-travelling device in the world of fashion

With British shoe artisanship being at its best this year many a style of shoe, such as Dr Martens and brogues, have been adapted to fulfil a feminine clientele. This year these traditionally British shoe brands have supplied the demand and branched out to create various interpretations of the female equivalent of male dominated shoe designs; breaking the boundaries of man-woman fashions and resulting in…

Shoes worthy of your closet: Aperlai

But amidst this madness is a luxurious art-inclined accessory line waiting to be unveiled to the world of shoe addicts. Introducing Aperlai, a Paris-based shoe house that has deeper…

Sure we brought you the best Olympic themed fashion photo shoot and followed up on the vintage Olympics theme by way of the John Smedley x Umbro recreation collection, but truly fashionable Olympic fusions have been few…
