The Pretty Pump

Apr 1 Shoes1

As platforms rise on other shoes, they’ve all but disappeared from pumps, which are making a return to the simple, ladylike styles of the 60s. At heights ranging from kitten heels to sky-high stilettos, these exude accessible elegance.

Get the look: Ferragamo, Manolo Blahnik

The Oxford

Apr 1 Shoes2

The menswear trend is moving down to the feet, with oxfords and brogues galore, embellished with piping, perforation, and, of course, color! They’re the perfect companion to other menswear-inspired pieces, like the classic boyfriend jean.

Get the look: Anthropologie, Robert Clergerie

Filmmaker Wes Anderson is back this summer after a successful debut at Cannes of his new film Moonrise Kingdom. While the plots of his various films tend to include affecting yet charming stories, it is the style of the characters and sets that leaves us most mesmerized… and, rest assured, Moonrise Kingdom will deliver when we get to sit down for it in theatres after its wide release (the film is in limited release currently, in NYC and LA). Get a sneak peak at the style of several characters in this film as we lead you ‘from the set to the street’ with unique suggestions for your wardrobe, inspired by Scout Master Ward (Ed Norton), the mother and wife Laura Bishop (Frances McDormand), the husband and father Walt Bishop (Bill Murray), and the daughter/star-crossed lover Suzy (Kara Heyward).

THE ‘PREPPY WEDNESDAY ADAMS’ LOOK:

Window-Shopping in Europe: Pumps November 9, 2011

Bondage to Betty Boop is the theme du jour for the pump spectrum this fall. Bondage includes high heels, exaggerated platforms, a lot of cut-outs, and strapping, often rendered in skin from python to matte black; Betty Boop feminizes the platform with bows, peep-toes, sculpted vamps, and patent leather to pretty colors… novelty pumps include the highly-glitterized classic to platform pump as well as vibrant suede and patent leather. Also watch for sculpted heels and exaggerated button and snap details.
