JF London is the brainchild of accessories designer extraordinaire Joshua Fenu. For his new line Fenu wanted a collection that merged the worlds of punk, goth and S&M. In order to do this platform booties, patent leather and boots with zippers combined with fish net designs were created.
These heels are not for those who are afraid to let out their inner wild-child or who just wants to blend in. Unique detailing, expert craftmanship and envelope-pushing silhouettes are reasons why these heels should be a part of your shoe collection.

Looking at the Fall collection from Elena Iachi you can see a lot of Western cowboy influences especially in the first two styles. The first boot is a unique variation of the ankle boot by having a sloped shaft. Also, the raised leather is another reason why this boot is an eye-catcher. In addition, the second boot has a discolored cap just the first one for those who love distressed footwear.
For those looking for more polished, less aggro footwear the third and fourth boots are for you. The third one showcases a futuristic aesthetic via its padded heel and tall form. Iachi’s 2016 Fall collection also has the ever-popular chelsea boot in crocodile with a longer pull tab in order to make it easier to get in on and off.

Here are a couple of styles from Saint Laurent’s 2016 collection that includes the wildly popular Tribute sandal in blue. Each heel is the perfect complement for any daytime or evening ensemble. The label is going through a major change as Hedi Slimane has recently left the label.
These styles and other Saint Laurent styles are currently available for purchase from Farfetch.com. To go to their website just click on the picture.]]>
When looking around the internet looking for new brands I came across Rebecca’s collection. Stockholm born Björnsdotter graduated from Cordwainers at London College of Fashion just in time to release her debut collection.
Rebecca’s last name Björnsdotter means “bear’s daughter” and the purpose of her collection is to make women feel brave and strong. Her Nordic roots are all over the collection from the colors taken from Sweden’s coast, use of furs and Viking art. This is a wonderfully done debut collection from Björnsdotter and I cannot wait to see more designs from her in the future.
My favorite styles are featured below:
Today’s collection is from Silvia Avanzi who launched Gray _Matters in 2015. Avanzi wanted to create shoes that ladies could wear for day and night ventures that will be more than appropriate. That is why the color Gray was chosen to be in the title of her label because of the color’s versatility and association with sophistication.
Each shoe is made in Venice and currently available for pre-order by going to the label’s website.]]>
For Spring 2016 the Caten twins created sandals that are sexy and audacious. All of the sandals feature a sort of “rope effect” in different colors and materials. Each one also has a high stiletto to make them more seductively charming.

Tabitha’s collection for Spring 2016 is filled with classy and contemporary silhouettes. Materials such as suede and raffia are used throughout the collection.
The floral design combined with Simmons use of raffia is the reason why the third heel is my favorite one for her 2016 Spring collection.

Le Silla is known for creating sexy and luxurious shoes and it has not stopped for Spring 2016. Also, each style is created from the best fashion materials available in the marketplace. High fashion creations are one of the things the label does best and these heels are currently available from LUISAVIAROMA.com.
Clicking on any of the shoes in this article will take you directly to the retailer’s website.
High handmade wedges and platforms mostly appear for Barcelo 2016 Spring/Summer collection. Eco-friendly materials such as raffia and wood are combined with standard industry leather to create a collection that is very eye-pleasing. Each style is painstaking crafted by hand in the company’s factory in Elche, Spain.
These styles and others can be currently purchased from the Paloma Barcelo website.

Getting up on this cold Spring day I decided to warm things up a bit by showing some styles from Kirkwood’s 2016 Spring collection. Snakeskin, patent leather and suede are a couple of materials used throughout the collection. Also, Nicholas ingeniously uses geometric shapes such as stacked ovals to create very unique shoes.]]>
