She Said “Niro”

There is something very interesting about the way a designer’s education affects their style.

These suede open-toe sandals from Jerome C. Rousseau got me thinking about it. While the overall look is very Rousseau, it could also easily be confused as a Peter Pilotto or Matthew Williamson creation! (All three designers studied at Cordwainers College). Regardless, these leather-stitched ‘Niro’ platforms make for beautiful shoes.

She Said “Spring 2012 Shoes”

That’s right, it’s preview hour for next season! I am trend forecasting an abundance of colour come Spring 2012, and I couldn’t be more excited.

There are tons of graphic heel treatments, but I think my favourites have to be Nine West‘s fluro, horizontal-striped chunky heel. What about you?
