Chelsea Market/NYC

words/images Judith Ecochard

Sculptural perfection-is what we think of ---when we view the silhouette of a classic pump made by the mega-talented footwear designer/crafter Coye Nokes.


With a few seasons under her belt, so -to -speak...yielded a feminine grown-upp Spring 2013 collection of heels and flats for women who "get' quality-be they career gals, bridal bound -or global sophisticates.

Naomi Pumps


Inspiration for this outing was a trip to Kyoto---an ancient/modern city full of gardens, buddhist temples and shrines-and the delicate beauty of many 19th century interwoven with modern architectural gems...translated into the extensive use of metallic gold as straps and solid white block heels- throughout this shoe collection.

Kira-solid suede  geometric blocks of color-on a white stack heel

Every item we saw-sandals/pumps made of embossed exotic leathers or suede-with multi-straps embellishments, gold details---and in colors of bold solids ---particularly a vivd pink which even non-pink-y types will like...and neutrals...ALL exquisite.
