Does anyone do details like Bottega Veneta? It’s their attention to the intricate that makes their accessories (you know how I feel about the bags!) consistently note-worthy. This Jackson Pollock-inspired print could only work on a thin, strappy sandal where it enhances rather than overwhelms the shoe. Any more material, and it would be sheer excess. In delicate doses, it feels as fresh and modern as a Pollock painting did in 1950. I don’t know whether to wear it or frame it!
The Peridot Pollock silk sandal has taken the abstract and made it accessible. A style like this is wearable, but what I really love is the texture and fluidity this print has. The sprinkled spray multi-colored paint pattern is divine chaos. The close-toe is an unexpected treat for this bare look, and the added gemstones further enhance their appeal – you’ve got to look closely to notice them, so these jewels are classy, not crass. Intrigue, elegance, and sophistication: Bottega doesn’t cease to thrill. At Bottega Veneta for $780.
Pair with: A shoe that hints at the wild requires a bag that is most restrained. Sedgwick’s minimal, whipstitched fall styles are sleek but not too shy. Mabel, $124-$286, and Georgia, $178-$410, clutches.
