All the bows make me think of presents! And after all, what is more beautiful than a brand-new-shoes with the bow-embellished detail? Ok, cool as long as the bow is polished and innovative, otherwise I have to be honest telling you that I didn’t find what I really was looking for. It is very difficult to insert a bow on a shoe without being boring unless you are Nicholas Kirkwood…
or Rossella Tarabini for Moschino..
Anyway I think that the bow must be combined with an unusual shoe design, otherwise it has no impact. However, if it is combined with a classic shoe has to be extremely extravagant and totally outside the box. Only like this I can call it high design.
During these days I focused my researches on bows and I am really interested in your opinion. What does mean bow for you and what kind of bow you like most? I made a selection because I think that only a few are very suggestive and innovative but in general I have never seen a cool bow for my shoes yet. Unless we are talking about the new amazing collection of Alessandro Dell’Acqua- N.21. I will dedicate a single-subject post next time!
These are some exemple of bows I selected: classic, big, minimal, chic…
Here below I add also some bow-details just to show you different styles. In general my favourite accessories are the big bows on the top of the shoe.
And now..what kind of bow do you like? Thin-large-big-minimal-colored-funny-studded-golden-patent? I hope this post make you consider that the beauty is to create something which is not only incredible to see but also well-balanced with the entire structure and accessories.
P.S. This is a preview but I couldn’t mention it.. then I will write a special post to N.21 by Alessandro Dell’Acqua but now want to share these beauties! Want a bow like this in my life :-)!
I learnt to appreciate the Desigual philosophy during the years, since I am not sure it is my style, (anyway in fashion never say never!!!) but I definitely love the colors mix, the super-funny mood, and the happiness the company shares with us on every occasion!
Today I am going to talk about the shoes, obviously! So, what is new for this autumn/winter? Desigual created some new collections that I want to share with you:
–> a collection of Swarovski Biker Boots. Biker and ankle booties embellished with crystals Swarovski in a geometric way which give a touch of refinement. The price is not very easy but I think that this style, the details and this kind of manufacturing may justify the cost.
–> A collection of urban sneakers that I call happy sneakers! I think this is my favourite! Very colorful and pretty! With flowers and decorations similar to graffiti or psychedelic signs! Definitely cool and trendy.
–> A collection of laser cut booties so pretty and creative.
