Fashion Week is still going on, and although not all the designers have had their runways shows, the designers that have shown their hard, and creative work, have really stepped it up this Fall season. Some of my favorites… Philip Lim, Rodarte, Reed Krakoff, at least for now. I didn’t love the Alexander Wang collection, which I normally do, but I did like the shoes. The operative word here is “like”, if you catch my drift.
Here are a few of the shoes and details that caught my eye from the collections. Although, some are not my favorite (i.e. Wang), they will play an important role in trends for Fall. Check it out…
Phillip Lim is on fire, and so are these boots. As I mentioned in my previous trend post, over the knee boots are coming strong for Fall 13, and these are another amazing design to add to the list. It reminds me of Acne Pre-Fall 13 cut out design elements. And that bootie, is too much. It’s a double identity for sure!
Another great detail from Phillip Lim, A double zip, coming from two different directions. I can definitely see this detail translated into a shoe!
I am not really sure how I feel about these designs. They are different, and I definitely see the commercial footwear brands running rapid with some interpretations here!
I am in love with this textile from Alexander Wang’s collection. The monochromatic camo is beautiful, and I see so much more inspiration here!
Narcisco Rodriguez’s, minimalist Fall collection, was beautifully done, and so were his shoes. I love the pointed last, choked up vamps, and do I see an open back/sling back trend peeking thru? See A. Wang’s collection above, and more throughout the collections. Stay tuned for more Fall 13 Shoe trends in the next post…
Rag and Bone is known for their boots, and this boot will be another home run. The leathers, the strap detail, and last is great. I think this is a fresh look from what they have been doing the past seasons, and am quite excited to see it in person.
I personally prefer sandals that have an edge. Reed Krakoff did an amazing job here by adding a closed back, and wrapping it around the ankle. It looks like it blends in with the pants, and I am digging that look. And, although I do like a high heel, this height works great!
Who was your favorite designer so far? Which shoes do you think are going to be a home run this Fall?
