Even in a room (or two) of shoes, shoes, shoes---Coye Nokes elegant footwear collection stands out for its fluid lines, exquisite construction---and wonderful tones and textures.
|Polished urban and urbane-Coye Nokes crafts shoes for women who demand shoes for day to night style- at 'approachable' luxury prices|
|Iris Sandal-Coral pink is delicious|
|Stunning-this upper heel cuff|
It's our third time out reviewing this collection---AND we feel that this outing by this talent-will gather major retailer interest.
For Spring 2012, Nokes took a trip down the Nile-channeling Cleopatra ...most characterized by the gold cuff bracelet-like embellishment ---so clever the bold square shape balanced by the rest of the geometric and feminine curve shapes.
|Alayna Sand Embossed Python-Camel Calf-Gold embellishments instead of buckles=crowning touch-on wood heel like a building column|
|Cleopatra Sandals-Emerald, Black + Canary Satin|
Indeed -sandals and shoes for a Queen-in beautiful patents, leathers including a snake embossed leather---architecturally distinct,
|A wedge is not clunky in Nokes' hands -the Maya Wedge in fresh spring tones----notice the subtle curves-feminine. Here- our fav color!|
|Layla and Alayna Sandals|
|ankle cutout-lengthens the legs|
|gold zippers-make the exit as interesting as the entrance|
|Caged sandals-Marc Anthony would love-emerald green satin - lovely for Spring|
|T straps-sparklers with solid suede heel cuff on embellished spiked heels. Meticulous construction|
|Mia Peep Toes|
Peep toe patents never looked as polished or in such pretty colors as here...ideal for the executive women who rules (or should).
|Our vote for most likely to be coveted by celebs|
IMHO-we can see Coye Nokes being snagged by some big name fashion designer to do a collab...if they're smart.
