In celebration of a the founder’s 100-year dream journey Ferragamo has launched “100 years 100 days”. With new features, stories, pieces, and movies being launched everyday for 100 days. In collaboration with Edgardo Osorio the acclaimed young shoe designer, he produced masterpieces  that playfully channel Ferragamo’s iconic designs from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. As always I had to share my obsession with one of the pieces the “Winged Sandal” if a woman would pass by wearing these I assure you no one would be looking anywhere but on her feet.

Daily Obsessions – Riccardo Tisci X Nike

I have a feeling the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will be soon roaming the streets in some fashion capitols. In recent seasons the fashion world has been going crazy with sneakers. Clashing elegance with everyday street wear became the thing to do, wearing a dress with sneakers why not? And the people that are going strong with this trend is Nike. So it is no surprise that they would collaborate with great designers to produce some capsule collections.  In this instance Nike collaborated with Givenchy head womenswear and couture designer Riccardo Tisci to create this collection, which is currently in stores. With the collaboration intended for both men and women for women are the boots in both different colors black & black and white.

12 Shoes For 12 Ex-Lovers

Never thought you could ever be inspired by an ex-lover?! Deep down the only thing you want is to forget them. But what if your inspiration from these ex-lovers bring you fortune and fame? Isn’t that the bet revenge?

A Chilean, New York-based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz created 12 shoes that represent his 12 ex-lovers. The 12 shoes show each lover’s characteristics and eccentricities. Every shoe design comes with it’s own story that makes the names and designs even clearer.

Going “Nude”

So I personally thought that this year was going to be the year where I jet of to Europe study during the week and travel and party during the weekend, WORNG. So This weekend I spent my entire weekend dedicated to finishing up my work. I did a fair amount of it. But perfectionist me, I am planning on repeating a large part of my homework. And I personally cant get myself to do it tonight, it has been a long exhausting weekend. But I have to admit never have I ever been so worried but so at ease and relaxed at the same time. Even without enough sleep I always manage to wake up before the alarm, waiting to see what the world has hidden for me. Its an oxymoron where I am so worried and tense but I feel somehow in center with myself and happy. These three weeks I believe had taught me something I never learnt before, is coming prepared and full of confidence but somehow in a second everything comes crashing down. Everything becomes wrong, I know this is a cliché but you dust yourself up and move on and find a better way to do things.

I haven’t posted a daily obsession recently, so here I am posting about the new shades of “nude” a new line that Christian Louboutin has launched for this upcoming season. Explaining “The shoes disappear like magic and become a fluid extension of the woman’s legs, as in a sketch, elongating the silhouette.” In order to achieve this appearance he launched the 5 different shades. And if you are finding trouble knowing which color best matches your skin, you can use a newly launched app to assist you with that. Here are the new shades of “nude”.

The other day I came across these Christian Dior metal Cannage platform pumps and I am obsessed with them. What I love about them is that they scream out Dior but in an elegant way like the Louboutin red sole. What’s beautiful about them is that they are timeless and elegant.

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days, but this week has been hectic. I just submitted and presented my final paper as an undergrad (It was 37 pages). Submitting it is so relieving! So today I came across these Del Toro shoes that I love at Moda Operandi.

Melissa + Karl Lagerfeld

Melissa was made famous by it’s rubber shoes. It previously had collaborations with many designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Jason Wu. Yesterday they launched their new collection with Karl Lagerfeld.

On their website, Melissa wrote about the collection saying: “In fashion, don’t take anything too seriously. If you follow this piece of advice, you can free yourself up to play with different looks and bring together various references in a fresh way”.

Here are the looks from the collection but my favorite is the one with the ice cream cone.

Roger Vivier created a pair of shoes which I like to call ‘different’ I may not be a big fan. But I must admit they are a show stopper, I feel like it is something Sarah Jessica Parker would wear. Like any other article of clothing it should be worn correctly. Up until now I might have to see them in real life to be convinced, but I had to show them to you to help me decide if we like them or not.

Today I couldn’t help myself but blog about these Alexander McQueen pumps. In the eyes of many theses pumps are classic, but that’s exactly why I like them. No matter how modern I am or try to be, I can’t help but fall back to classics. They are the basis of what we have today, it’s like saying we will not celebrate The Parthenon or The Colosseum because they are too old. We will always be marveled and struck by the beauty of old and classical objects and buildings, which we can use to help inspire us to move further into a more modern era. So I believe we should celebrate classical objects and lets start by loving these McQueen pumps.
