The Statement Shoe

Designer’s have blurred the boundaries of fashion and art to create modern day masterpieces that even Picasso would be proud of…

This is definately the year of the statement shoe. From Miu Miu’s candle shaped heels, to Chanel’s metallic peep toe shoes the runways welcomed a riot of colour, creativity and artistry. There is something for everyone. If Marc Jacob’s modern art inspired upside heel is “too out there” why not try Roberto Cavalli’s more traditional yet head-turning wedges? If Balenciaga’s warrior shoes aren’t for you why not opt for Chloé’s wide strapped patent heels? You get the idea. Designers invite you to let your imagination run wild, to experiment, to be whoever you want to be. This year’s shoes capture the essence of this season. This year its all about you. All about choice, flair and creativity. The line between fashion and art has been blurred and they have collided to create a truly inspiring season…

Trend Focus: The New Bohemian

      bohemian-3.jpg          couture-2.jpg

Pictures/photo shoot by Vogue. Clothes by Balmain and Balenciaga. To see their feature ‘Spring Forward’ buy the February 2008 issue out now.

With Christmas finally over and the New Year in full swing its time to look at the key trends…    

Catwalks were awash with pretty florals, soft chiffons and quirky accessories. The New Bohemian incorporates all these elements for a look that’s effortlessly cool and eccentrically English. Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli and Stella McCartney all rocked this look down the Spring/Summer ’08 runways. But if, like me, your budget doesn’t stretch that far there are some great high street alternatives….
