Prada’s statement piece for Spring 2013–a sequin platform sandal featuring gold patent leather straps. Defiantly different from last Spring’s much-celebrated car shoe, but still just as much fun. Via Saks.

Valentino Rockstud Bag & Sandals Spring 2013

ValentinoRockstudResort 524x540 Valentino Rockstud Bag & Sandals Spring 2013

If I were to put together my own “favorite things” for 2012, something from the Valentino Rockstud collection would have to be on the list (as evidenced here). As such, I was delighted to see while leafing through my Bergdorf Goodman Resort Collections magazine that Valentino is continuing the collection for Resort 2013. Often designers believe that have to jump to the next new thing so it’s a relief  to see a designer find new interpretations of a genius idea rather than abandon it in the name of staying relevant.

See a pink pair of Rockstud sandals on the next page.

Lucas Nascimiento x Charkiviani Open Toe Mules

Highsnobette- Lucas N x Charkiviani-3

In my mind mules have to be one of the sexiest women’s footwear silhouettes allowing for legs and ankles to not be contrived in any way plus they make you bring out that Naomi walk .As cool as they are very few brands have them as standards in their collections,  as footwear trends have gone in so many directions for the past decade. Gladly,  Lucas Nascimento collaborated with shoe designer Charkiviani on these mules we had to pause and admire. See the angles on the flip and purchase in Navy or Black at Ln-cc.

Christian Louboutin For Bergdorf Catalog Autumn 2012

CL1 387x540 Christian Louboutin For Bergdorf Catalog Autumn 2012

If you have visited New York’s Bergdorf Goodman department store, you know it’s akin to visiting a sort of “now” museum, with all the runways’ most gorgeous offerings in full bloom and artfully displayed in an array of shops dedicated to expressing each label to the fullest. It was unknown to me until I made a purchase there in the Spring, that Bergdorf’s makes a seasonal catalog, which is full of its most tempting items, all beautifully photographed. Get your hands on the Autumn issue, titled “111 Years of Extraordinary” or view it here online, and see if you don’t often find it loads better than anything the major books offered up for their big September issue.

The latest catalog includes the above image (scanned by moi), showing a Christian Louboutin sandal, described as  ”ankle-strap d’orsay platform pumps in black suede with dyed pink mink fur heel cap,” or in other words “heaven in a shoe.” Find the CL shoe for purchase here.
