Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director of Salvatore Ferragamo, revisited the house’s iconic model, the “Rainbow” sandals – the symbol of the house since 1938 when Ferragamo first came up with the so famous by now design. Shiny leather, architectural lines, metallic leather heels, gold and silver mixed together – a pair of shoes we completely fell in love with. How about you?
I always loved shoes but with the new Casadei collection for Resort 2016 my love for them just grew up to the stars – the colour palette, inspired by the delicious Ladurée macarons is absolutely beautiful – pumps, butterfly cutout sandals (also available in flats), Swarovski crystals – Super sweet!
British designer, Sophia Webster, created, in collaboration with the most famous doll brand on the planet, Barbie, a fun limited edition collection. “Creating a shoe collection for Barbie has always been my dream project, but getting to be a part of her embracing flats for the first time made it extra exciting, and deeply personal,” Webster told Vogue UK. “I love that this concept strikes a balance between dreams and reality – the idea of getting Barbie in some hi-tops and setting her loose in East London instantly appealed.”
The collection will be available at Selfridges department store and on the online official website starting 27 of August! Let’s play!!!!

GIO DIEV is a sculptural footwear collection uniting futuristic designs with timeless luxury.
Elegant simplicity, architectural precision and attention to high quality are the key elements of the brand. Sophisticated silhouettes come to life with the finest Italian craftsmanship and a unique creative process. Fluid lines and unexpected detailing create a look that is sensual yet powerful.
A childhood spent at his mother’s shoe store in Sofia made ‘shoes’ the natural choice of creative medium. His eye for luxury was shaped and solidified through his professional experience working for prestigious brands such as Chanel, Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana. This behind-the-scenes access and knowledge gave Gio the confidence to pursue his life-long dream of establishing his own label, GIO DIEV, in 2010.
After leaving Dolce & Gabbana in 2010, Gio honed his craft at the pattern studio of one of the most acclaimed shoe factories in Vigevano, Italy – known to many industry professionals as the shoe mecca.
Gio finds his true inspiration traveling around the world, experiencing different cultures and their own perceptions of beauty, art and design. He loves obscure foreign films, uncanny music and anything with wit and humour. His creations are about passion, fantasy and most importantly the women that he loves and admires. Gio currently lives and works in New York City.
Preorders for the collection available here.
The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, prepares an extraordinary exhibition for the summer fashion of 2015, and the main characters will be SHOES: Pleasure and Pain. The exhibition will take visitors on a cultural journey, from ancient Egypt to nowadays, with more than 200 pairs of historic and contemporary shoes from around the world on display, some for the first time. Dramatic shapes, head spinning high heels, developments in footwear technology.
“Shoes are one of the most telling aspects of dress,” Helen Persson, the exhibition’s curator, said. “Beautiful, sculptural objects, they are also powerful indicators of gender, status, identity, taste and even sexual preference. Our choice in shoes can help project an image of who we want to be.”
The exhibition, occupying two floors, is divided into three sections: Transformation – presenting shoes that are part of legends and folklore worldwide; Status – which explores how impractical but beautiful shoes have come to represent privilege; and Seduction – showing shoes “representing an expression of sexual empowerment or a passive source of pleasure“.
Take a look at the gallery below – just a taste of what to expect at the new fashion exhibition at the V&A Museum in London. The museum hosts the exhibition starting from June 13, 2015 until January 31, 2016.
