Before making staple footwear every closet needed, Coliac’s designer Martina Grasselli started off designing statement jewelry pieces. The label’s now gone on to use the same influences to create unique pairs of shoes like its pearl-embellished Derby’s called “Fernanda” and gold-toned loafers. Expect the Italian leather finish on select styles to make Coliac shoes long-lasting favorites, while a vulcanized rubber sole and supple lining all day comfort on its slip-on sneakers.The designer counts Art Deco, Russian Constructivism, and the Bauhaus among her inspirations. If those things aren’t immediately evident in Grasselli’s fabulous, lushly adorned styles, the eclecticism of that list is: trompe l’oeil details, crystals, pearls, or held closed with gold bars where laces would typically go. Pairs come at every level of embellishment, from allover jewels to styles whose charms sing more quietly, like black lace-ups with a simple piercing through the toe. Whichever you choose, you’ll be sure to make a statement.
HOGAN has recently presented a very eye-catching spring summer 2018 shoes collection. The famous Italian brand has brought back the latest version of their signature H222 design piece. The maxi platforms are back again, showcased in a sandal version as well. Next season the Hogan woman becomes an Urban Gypsetter – a fashion citizen who joyfully mixes urban style with a Bohemian touch. The H222 wedge sneaker is being imagined in a smarter version for SS 2018. Made of metallic leather in an iridescent emerald green who gives it character. Iconic and timeless, the H222 is becoming a bit more inventive without ever abandoning its original ambition; dressing up the working woman from home to the office with nonconformist parties downtown in between. These super Hogan sneakers truly take flight when paired with an orange satin skirt!
Dsquared is a fashion brand that was created by two twin brothers from the small village of Willowdale, Ontario, Canada. The brothers, Dean and Dan Caten have been involved in the fashion business for the past 28 years on an international scale. The cocktail that the duo serves for spring 2018 is a mix of tropical motifs, Western vibes and a pinch of Boy Scouts. This season the DSquared2 designers present a collection covered in a number of different patterns, from flower print pants lined with metal studs along the side to jackets and shirts made from pre-distressed denim. DSquared shoes capture the label’s striking yet nonchalant aesthetic.
