Who wouldn't do anything just to own shoes as glorious as this? Whilst working on an article today I remembered how absolutely perfect Salvatore Ferragamo's shoes used to be. I mean, these Judy Garlands (that's the name of the beauty above) were created in 1938! Just picture yourself sipping a daiquiri by a swimming pool in Palm Springs wearing those shoes (and maybe also a turban, to add a bit more extravaganza). Those were the days. right? But all of Ferragamo's designs back then were colourful, visionaire and somewhat psychedelic. These are some of my favourites.
This black and white number is so chic. I would wear it anytime, it would look so perfect with all of my clothes. Oh well, dream away. Anyway, if, like me, you're a fan of funky wedges, there's loads to choose from this summer. It's silly because it's January and it's about 2 degrees outside and I'm wearing two pairs of socks, so it's not really the perfect time to think of sandals, is it? Still, I believe it's good to start thinking early of summer shopping. That way you know exactly which pieces you're obsessed with, what you will really need and what you can do without, instead of going completely stressed to Selfridges or Printemps and buying anything and everything like a fashion psycho. At least it works for me. So here are the coolest wedges of the season!
I've just posted one Proenza Shouler. But take a look at the whole collection, because all of the shoes are mental! The colours are to die for and I love the shapes.
There's little to say about Givenchy... Everyone wants these shoes. They are magnificent. I wonder wether it's possible to actually walk on the streets in these but they really are magnificent.
Dior is another must of the season. Half Hollywood golden age and half Studio 54... so cool!
If you like a more low key kind of shoe you're lucky, because this is officially the softest, most feminine, sorbet, powdery season in many years, and there are really lovely pieces.
Stella McCartney has a whole range of cork wedges. They are all minimal and easy to wear, and I think they look really comfortable. The ones above would look so cool just with a denim short and an oversized plain t-shirt.
Roger Vivier was, alongside Ferragamo, one of the first shoemakers to design wedges. This number is classic, summery and oh-so-chic.
Donna Karan is always urban. And always fashionable.
This shoe is from Viktor & Rolf. You wouldn't say it after seeing the show, which was so excessive and so...Viktor & Rolf. I really like it because it keeps the fantasy spirit of the show whilst being pretty and wearable.
