Sandals are normally the shoe of choice for summer and are a great way of adding a bit of glamour to ensembles no matter what the occasion. Shoes of Prey, the online company that offers women the opportunity to design their own shoes, has recently collaborated with one of Australia’s most influential fashion designers Carla Zampatti to create three fabulous sandals for this season.
These gorgeous heels feature two straps and come in three colourways; nude, black and snakeskin. The collection pushes Carla’s signature minimalist aesthetic in a bold new direction whilst still appealing to shoe fanatics who appreciate simplicity with a slight edge. The long tassel detailing on the back of each style creates a subtle femininity allowing for a bit of movement to give them that ‘swishing’ feel when you walk. You’ll feel like you’re on the catwalk!
Carla Zampatti says:
“Not only stunning, the shoes feel great to wear and make a woman feel great wearing them. Nothing is more appealing than that.”
They’ll easily compliment the all-white trend or the more bolder styles we’re seeing this season like exotic prints, neon flashes and floral. Contemporary dressing has never been so achievable! And in true Shoes of Prey style, shoppers can edit the colours as well as the materials of each sandal to create a shoe that is a little more personal and unique.
It’s time your feet were freed from the restraints of boots and ballet pumps and got a little fresh air this season so add a pair of the Carla Zampatti sandals to your summer wardrobe – they are a total investment!
The sandals are available from www.ShoesOfPrey.com priced at £149.00 each.
The days seem to be getting brighter and warmer now which hopefully means that spring has finally arrived and is here to stay – rejoice! There is still a slight chill in the air though which causes a frenzy when it comes to deciding what to wear as all us fashion fanatics want to do is show off our lovely new season purchases. By now we should have ditched all our winter gear, safely storing it away in our wardrobe for next time, and instead be able to leave the house in our SS13 favourites – bare legs and all!
Luckily there is a way to compromise though without sacrificing comfort over style. Oroblu’ is the Italian leader in hosiery as the brand has a reputation for both impeccable quality and innovation. The SS13 collection offers a variety of refined and elegant designs including delicate graphic patterns, 60s inspired geometric prints and shades ranging from plain sand to cold water colours and flowery lilac. Practical and clever ideas from integrated shape wear to soft comfort waistbands will fit easily into any woman’s lifestyle and can be worn on chilly summer days.
Michelle Smith is the designer and founder of Milly which is a brand that epitomizes bold and advanced contemporary fashion with a graceful edge. Classic designs are transformed by merging American sportswear influences with distinctive Parisian atelier techniques to create beautiful iconic pieces that are on-trend and wearable for the season.
Fashion lovers across the globe can’t get enough of Milly which is down to the clothing’s impeccable detail, luxurious cutting-edge fabrics and precise tailoring. It is these aspects which have made the designer label so incredibly popular and a must-see at Fashion Week. For the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, inspiration has been drawn from the beauty of urban landscapes at night which is evident in the photorealistic prints which glow against a rich palette grounded in glistening charcoals and metallic blacks as if to represent a bustling city. Innovative fabrics and textured layers play a big role in this range that takes iconic sportswear silhouettes to a whole new level.
