‘Twas the first official day of New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week and all the front rows were filled with celebrities and editors from Anna Wintour to Rachel Zoe. The models were dressed all types of shapes and hues, but my focus here was –you guessed it- the shoes. This is by no means a comprehensive view, but it is a glimpse at my favorites.
High heeled loafers will be back for Fall 2012, at least according according to Tabitha Simmons’ shoes for Honor’s ready to wear show. Embellished with prints from the collection and bits of hardware, they perfectly mix his and hers. *image by Giovanni Giannoni via WWD
Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra are known for their soft, feminine creations, where draping and movement are focal points. The shoes for their Fall 2012 ready to wear show, with their pointy toes and dainty contrasting ankle straps were all things demure. **Image by Thomas Iannaccone via WWD
Chadwick Bell’s Fall collection wasn’t a favorite among editors, however I found his babydoll platforms adorable. Mary Janes of sorts with suede ties and contrasting platforms, they had a sexy lolita vibe. **Image by Giovanni Gianonni via WWD
