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.
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.
