We just go tin the new Rupert Sanderson Fall 2013 collection.
Two of the most striking ones that we received are the Rael and the Valentina. Both are inspired by barbwire. A classic mix of hard and soft.
The Rael is a mustard colored pump with a bow at the front. But instead of of doing a classic ribbon bow he created it too look like barbwire.
While the Rael is a practical shoe that could easily go from day to night and become an instant staple in your wardrobe, the Valentina is something different entirely.
An open-toed, heel strapped black bootie with a soul that looks dipped in gold and silver barbwire wrapping around the top and sides. A true show-stopper. You can pair it with your simplest of dresses and it will transform it in to an ‘all-eyes-on-you’ kinda outfit.
For this Fall 2013 collection he is said to be inspired from a Modern, dark and edgy Japanese esthetic. Think Kill Bill. And they are oh so amazing.
On a side note, Footcandy has joined Pinterest! Look for us under FootCandyHQ. It all started yesterday with trying to find inspiration for the upcoming change to Fall window displays. Trying to find something modern and edgy without having the kitsch of the fall displays you’d likely see at your grandmas. After getting sucked into the endless photo array that is Pinterest, we finally came up with a concrete idea. It’s all getting put into action on Sunday, so come by the St Helena Store on Main Street to see or creation!
Follow us on Pinterest! More pins to come of course, because we all know how addicting that site is….
