On The Radar…Footwear Designers

With a wide range of rich and distinct colors, textures and styles, Zara is serving us major shoe envy with their 2018 Fall Collection. Think Metallics, Bright hues, Distinct heels and a combination of textures, your closet is about to be popping with shoes ranging from about 25 pounds (N13,000) to 100 pounds (N50,000) per item.   Whether you're on the low end of the continuum or tending towards the higher side, Zara has fit every budget in view. Oh and the best part is that they have sizes up to a U.K 9 (EUR 43). They remain the go to brand for the  fashionista on a budget.  

From Emerald to Olive, Kelly, Lime and Chartreuse, there are many gorgeous shades of Green shoes that will make anyone go green with envy. Green is undoubtedly my favorite color in the world especially for fashion pieces. It's sales season in many retail stores - Luxury and High Street, and with new season collections being released, i want them all in green.

It'd take a long time to get over this fairy tale between Meghan and Harry. Oh and by the way, my choice of Aquazzura didn't make it as her wedding shoes, but we did get a place for the reception party. Now that she is the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan has a whole lot of rules to follow, to keep in line with the monarchy.

In her days of the TV hit series suits, it had always been pointed toe pumps, from Aquazzura to Sarah Flint and a few Louboutin moments. It's just a few hours to the Royal Wedding and i still can't come to a conclusion on who to place bet for Meghan Markle's wedding shoes   It's been tough guessing who'd be designing her wedding shoes. All speculations point towards, Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy ChooSarah Flint and  Aquazzura. I am a big fan of Edgardo Osorio, the founder and designer of Aquazzura and would route for him on this one.

I didn't know Miu Miu was a subsidiary of the brand Prada until i was going to do this post. Miu Miu is an Italian women's clothing and accessory brand, headed by Miuccia Prada. Going through both collections on farfetch, i can now explain the similarity in their designs. I guess it's safe to say that Miu Miu is an embellished, more playful version of Prada.

Zara, one of the world's largest apparel retailers has to be top on my list for high street fashion. They have a new collection and the shoes are amazing. So, i thought to share with you guys. This one is especially for my fashionistas on a budget, i have had many say to me that Zara is High Street's high end brand and that their pieces are pricey. I have rounded up a few pairs that cost about N15,000 (NGN) a pair and gorgeous. More interesting are the pieces i found that you can use to build your shoe closet collection.

It's Tuesday and it's shoes day (Everyday is Shoes day when you're a shoe lover) and today, the details are in the heels. I have come across a lot of designers whose focus have been on distinct heels and i'd be featuring a few of these designs today.   Have you read the post on French Designer Jacquemus?. He is one of such designers and below are some of my favorite. He uses shapes in a playful and fun way that gives life to heel of every pair he creates.
