-Daniele Michetti- Luxury Women's Footwear Cruise-S/S/ 2014


A fair bit of time spent in Paris-the last time Puma's Chuck Taylors emerged as a must fashion statement…leads us to believe that for this go round-those dazzling/bedazzled lace-up kicks- seen on luxury label runways…probably won't sell all that well at full retail prices.

Less costly versions of sneakers from multi-dimensional sports brands will fill that sartorial need-as they already offer up several street savvy versions.

IMO-women will pay for luxury prices for luxury labels that look-and are- the real deal-with beautiful sculptural heels, feminine often sexy silhouettes---and most likely-made in Italy of the finest materials and embellishments.

Daniele Michetti a former stylist, is an insider's must have designer of accessories- and now- timeless shoes-with an enviable extravagantly wonderful Spring 2014 collection featuring sleek gladiator sandals-and a gladiator flat boot-the "it" look of the season, single sole-slim pumps, masterfully detailed architectural laser cut-out heels…

All glorious.

Driandne Pumps
And exactly what we think of when we think of high end-splurge on  footwear… hand details, exacting craftsmanship, unusual trims, innovative designs-plush leathers and exotic materials…real head turners-not scratchers.
