We’re ecstatic to welcome 2013 because of the fabulous trends we saw on the runways. Our fave designers gave us a sneak peek of what’s to come and what to look forward to this year. If you want to update your style, check out our latest fab finds that are right on trend for Spring 2013.
Laser Cut – The laser cut trend has been applied not just to shoes but also to skirts, jackets, dresses and handbags. It features intricately cut designs done by machine and incorporated on different fabrics and leather.
B Brian Atwood Laplata Sandals in Turquoise and Purple, $425
Mixed Media - We love mixed media shoes because they exhibit boldness and creativity. These shoes take play in the balance of opposing textures. Designers mix up materials like suede, exotic skin, patent leather and also combine different colors and patterns to liven up a shoe.
Metallic/Iridescent – Metallic finishes have now been upgraded with a little more shimmer. The iridescent trend can be applied all over the leather or just a small part, to incorporate subtle detail. We’ve also seen a lot of snakeskin and other exotic leather sandals freshened up with this new reflective technique.
Architectural Heels – I’m sure you have noticed funky-shaped shoes walking down the runways last year. Designers have become more fearless in experimenting with funky shapes and detailed heels, resulting to fabulous shoes with awesome architectures.
