Despite the fact that it’s still 34 degrees outside today I already received my first shipment of Fall/Winter 2012 shoes from Florence Italy. These are Roberto Capucci shoes which I ordered at the February 2012 Toronto Shoe Show. It seems like such a long time ago but this shipment brought back the same excitement I experienced when I ordered them. Roberto Capucci’s designs are often described as wearable sculptures and many have said he turns art into fashion. He absolutely achieved this with these elegant, chic pumps that will beautifully complement outfits and stylishly decorate your feet. I just love the sexy cut out and the combination of colors and textures.
What’s new this Fall and Winter 2012?
Look: As mentioned above the decor is minimal with concentration on the combination of colors and textures. Look for combination only two colours in a shoe design. The color visually divides a shoe either vertically or horizontally, however, the heel or sole calso can be marked out.
Platform: The platform, which is loved by designers, is still relevant with boots and shoes. The platform shoes visually lengthen the leg, make it sleeker and add a few inches to the height.
Heel: This fall winter allows you to dictate the fashion and height of your heel. The heel varies from a very thin spike heel to a massive stable square heel, which is not only convenient, but also perfect for our roads in winter.
Wedges: These are still very popular in shoes and boots as they look great and add comfort . Look for high platforms and wedges.
Comfort: We’re very fortunate to have the comfort look in this fall/winter. You’ll find lots of leather and suede boots with low square heels.
Toes: Classic sharp toes are back. Look for shoes and boots with gold or silver finishing off the look.
Here’s a few of many boots that you’ll be able to find at Pearl Street Fine Shoes this fall.
