Pink plus leopard equals terribly tacky? Not in the meticulous hands of Monsieur Alaïa! Back in fall, he delivered ultra-chunky, lug-soled booties (which I wore to death during Fashion Week in September). Now this leopard has changed its spots – and it’s right on time.
A true-to-life-meets-cotton candy palette makes for a nuanced look, and the precise silhouette drives the elegance home. The delicacy of the sandal is key, elevating a wild print from streetwalker to chic-walker.
Thin, curve-hugging slivers of straps allow for a full view of your foot, an erotic zone for many. If that’s not incentive to chuck the chunk, then I don’t know what is. It’s high time for me to ditch the clunky platforms and embrace the stiletto! Will you be showing off below the ankles this season? At Edon Manor for $1,650.
Pair with: L’Wren Scott’s blue pochette ($1,800) is powdery, not prissy. In glazed eel, this is a sleek way to double up on pastels this season.
