Malone Souliers Celebrates its Debut at Bergdorf Goodman

Yesterday, Shoes was invited to celebrate with London-based shoe designer Mary Alice Malone of Malone Souliers on the arrival of her shoes at Bergdorf Goodman. After swooning over the brand’s Fall 2014 collection, I was able to chat briefly with the designer herself, alongside Managing Director Roy Luwolt.

This fall collection is nostalgic to the 1930s and 1940s, when sexy wasn’t defined the same way that it is today; it’s this different definition of sexy that makes this collection a unique one. When asked what her inspiration was for her collection, Malone said, “Fine craftsmanship and looking back to the 1930s and ’40s, and bringing back what they defined as sexy. Sexy was not the same back then as it is today, and this is what I really studied.”

The brand combines different materials and textures while giving an innovative twist to the classic silhouettes, which include ankle-strap and T-strap pumps.

The Many Bags of Taylor Swift, Part 2

The Many Bags of Taylor Swift Part 2

In some ways, it seems like Taylor Swift has been daring me to write a second investigation into her handbag collection all summer. Every day when I open our photo agency’s archives, there are new photos of her walking to and fro in New York City, enjoying her morning constitutional, her evening constitutional and sometimes several constitutionals in between, generally wearing a two-piece matching outfit and a handbag dangling from her forearm. To me, her intentions are clear.

Even if you don’t believe that Taylor Swift is trying to surreptitiously communicate with me through the paparazzi, taking a look through her quirky handbag collection is an interesting study in celebrity branding. Instead of carrying things that others have decided are popular or of-the-moment, Swift sticks to less recognizable options from both major brands and independent designers alike. The result is that she always looks like herself instead of looking like an It Bag billboard, just like the last time we took a look at her handbag habits in 2014.

Ferragamo is riding a heat wave at the moment. The brand struck handbag gold with its latest major push, the Fiamma, and followed it up by enticing its fans with an online film series and now a digital trunk show.

For its Fall 2014 collection, Salvatore Ferragamo tapped Alexandra Richards, Leigh Lezark, Genevieve Jones and Princess Melusine Ruspoli for its campaign. The four ladies were shot on location around New York, and each picked her favorite looks from Massimiliano Giornetti’s fall runway collection.

I already adore Ferragamo bags, but after seeing these photos, I have a new appreciation of all things Ferragamo. Fall will be here before we know it, so start picking out your fall must-haves; you can start by visiting the Ferragamo Digital Trunk Show to swoon over the collection.

Kim Kardashian Wears Her Favorite Alaïa Sandals Once Again

Designer Shoes

Kim Kardashian Alaia Suede Sandals

Here’s Kim Kardashian with her sister Kourtney, doing Kardashian things in the Hamptons. Kim’s wearing a pair of old favorites, the Alaïa Embellished Suede Sandals. (And by “old” we mean she acquired them no less than 3 months ago.) These gorgeous sandals are sadly nowhere to be found online.

We spotted Kim wearing these Alaïas with an entirely different little black dress in NYC back in June. Practically everything Alaïa makes jives perfectly with Kim’s Kanye-curated looks. And really, does she ever look bad in black? We think not. BTW, we’re not sure who designed Kourtney’s animal print pumps, but if you know, feel free to chime in!

Your New Favorite Boot Will be the Edgy Moto

Designer Shoes

Moto Boots

Moto boots in seasons past have been daintily emblazoned with studs and spikes for a faint downtown cool attitude, but bigger may be better when it comes to this season’s wave of motorcycle boots.

All kinds of ankle booties are an excellent fall accessory, and it looks like our favorite motorcycle boot are taking a walk on the even more rebellious side this season. Studs and spikes are going to be the add-on of choice for fall, but don’t be fooled by the motorcycle boot name. Between all the crystals, studs and chains, these edgy boots can compliment even the most feminine of ensembles!

Check out my favorite moto boots in the gallery, and check out even more great boot styles at Neiman Marcus!
