Having launched a namesake, high-end jewelry collection and written a best-selling book offering young women tips for getting ahead, 28-year-old Ivanka Trump is preparing to expand her name. Not satisfied with the price-friendly handbag collection with Mondani arriving next March, Ivanka has teamed up with Marc Fisher Footwear to debut a collection of moderately priced footwear for Spring 2011, which includes a mix of stilettos, flip-flops, sneakers and ballet flats. What do you think of the collection? Actual prototypes aren’t available yet, but based on these sketches, they remind me a bit of what Stuart Weitzman does (Ivanka has actually worn his shoes on more than one occasion). What did you think she was going to be selling? Louboutin wannabes? In all the years I’ve know Ivanka, she’s always been very grounded, hardworking and business-minded. I fully expected that her shoe line would be geared towards the masses–women, who like her, actually work for a living. I have no doubt that these shoes will be very comfortable. As for glamorous? We’ll have to wait to see.
The 75-to-100-style line is tentatively priced between $80 and $140.
