Gianvito Rossi Shoes for Fall 2014

Gianvito Rossi Shoes Fall-Winter 2014

 

The apple doesn’t really fall far from the tree. In the case of Gianvito Rossi who counts the famed footwear maven Sergio Rossi as his father, shoe designing is certainly in their DNA.

Since stepping out on his own in 2006 with his own footwear line, Gianvito Rossi has slowly carved a name of his own and the brand is now synonymous with understated elegance, clean and classic silhouettes (in comparison to frills and frou frou) as well as fine Italian craftsmanship.

For his Fall 2014 collection, the inspiration came from “the cowgirls of long ago”. The cowgirl reference is not hard to miss, like for instance the Western-style trim found on the Annie (see 2nd image below) and Bonnie booties (see image up top). The color palette is an autumnal burst of color explosion of fiery reds and sunset oranges offset by the sombre tones of early winter that of black, beige, white and burgundy.

Watch This: La Détente

La Détente is a short animated 3D film produced and directed by Pierre & Bertrand that is nothing short of epic.

The duo dedicated over four years for this project and released on the centenary commemoration of World War I. Shown at the Cannes in 2011, the film has garnered a lot of awards since then. It tells the story of a French soldier in World War I, who becomes paralyzed with fear while fighting in the trenches. He escapes in his head to an imaginary world where toys fight wars instead of humans.

La Detente from Not To Scale on Vimeo.

The film is both whimsical but hauntingly horrific at the same time. Anti-war sentiment notwithstanding, the film is ultimately a lilting statement of the enduring human spirit.

Daniele Michetti Shoes for Fall-Winter 2014

Daniele Michetti Shoes for Fall-Winter 2014Designer Daniele Michetti’s artistry as well as eye for fluid design and sumptuous detail is delightfully manifested in her latest Autumn-Winter shoe lineup.

The collection offers a knock-out array of selections from luxurious smoking slippers and exquisitely laser-cut bootie sandals to the come-hither over-the-knee boots and tough-chic chelsea booties. Even lovelier is how Michetti smartly melded on it’s own typically down-to-earth core fall materials like suede and leather with à la mode design elements of linear laser-cuts, metallic studs and buckles and created something new that is all at once quietly provocative and posh.

3 Ways to Ignite your Inner Sparkle

3 Ways to Ignite your Inner Sparkle

In an age where self-promotion and materialism (of selfies & shopping haul announcements, for instance) is almost considered de rigeur, one can’t help but be overwhelmed and bogged down by all the preoccupation with acquiring things in order to look good and be happy. Here are some tips to polish or regain your inner light and be a better you:

Be yourself.

That’s right.. just be unabashedly your wonderful self. You are a one of a kind creation, no one will ever be like you and no one can compare to you. Don’t be afraid to let your unique personality shine. Own it, that makes you who you are.

Find out what you love.

Discover what makes your soul fill with joy. You will have to require yourself to exert a bit more effort acting on your interests. And when you do find out what your passions are, find time to do them. Pursue them. Hone them. The more you do things you love, the more you shine and exude joy to the world.

Forgive yourself.

Release yourself from the chains of perfectionism, self-defeating thoughts and years of beating yourself for every mistake. It is okay to make mistakes, just trust yourself to make a better judgement next time.

Now go forth and unleash your inner sparkle!

In Joy and in Sorrow, always be thankful

monday motivation

Every day that you are alive is a miracle. Be thankful for the life and the endless possibilities for joy, value and fulfillment it bestows on you. When the blessings come, be thankful. When the sorrows come, find a way to be thankful. For every experience there is some meaning and value to be thankful for however difficult some of it could be. Be thankful and realize the richness of your life and with every moment find a way to harness abundance.

Here’s to a week full of abundance!

Nicholas Kirkwood Autumn/Winter 2014 Shoes

Tuesday Shoesday

 

British designer Nicholas Kirkwood burst into the scene in 2006 and in no time has carved a name for himself as a designer known for footwear with futuristic and architectural bent that are strangely highly covetable. For Fall-Winter 2014 the designs are surprisingly less boombastic and more understated. This time luxury and clean-cut sensibility seems to course through the vein of this collection — featuring classic pumps and booties (some with laser-cut circular designs) using staple cool textures of suede, leather and snakeskin in shades of plum, peacock blue, crimson and black. This is the kind of collection that makes you gasp and proclaim that you can wear them in all colors and for many seasons to come. It’s classic but never boring.
