19 Jan With these shoe designers you will be the bomb!
Brands like Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik have become such a big part of popular culture that it’s no surprise that most of us, myself included, own a pair or two from these veterans. But owning shoes beyond these classics brings diversity and makes for a more well-rounded collection. The new year is always an exciting time to predict the newest batch of emerging shoe designers, and all of the brands below have something to offer the luxury footwear market. We’ve mentioned all of these brands before, but now we are looking more closely at why they will likely become more entrenched in the footwear scene in 2015.
“Looking back to the 1930s and ’40s, and bringing back what they defined as sexy.” That’s how designer Mary Alice Malone of Malone Souliers described her Fall 2014 collection to us. Her shoes are undoubtedly sexy, but in a way we aren’t used to, and that’s why this designer is a breath of fresh air. You won’t find mega platforms or chunky heels, but you will find feminine shoes that marry traditional, demure styling with bold details.
If her name sounds familiar, there’s good reason: Chloe Gosselin started her career as a fashion model and recently started her label in Fall 2014. Dare I say that she may have found her true calling? What’s noteworthy about this collection is her use of exotics. Often, she meshes snakeskin with non-exotic materials, like suede, which makes for vibrant contrasting textures. With asymmetrical detailing on traditional silhouettes, her makes a fierce statement.
As a winner of the CFDA Fashion Fund award, which is meant to aid and support the next generation of designers, Paul Andrew is already a favorite in the fashion scene. Feathers and fringe are his staples, and his overall aesthetic is bold and luxurious without being pretentious.
Serigo Rossi isn’t a bad name to have on your resume, right? After leaving the brand as Creative Director, Russo started his eponymous label and flame-like vamps are already becoming his signature. His overall collection is architectural but still sexy.
