These handmade leather shoes by Brooklyn based Feit have totally piqued my curiosity. Australian brothers John and Tull Price, the creative director of Rag & Bone footwear, founded the company in 2005 with a small collection of uniquely crafted leather sneakers for men. Unlike the soles of most sneakers which are glued, Feit’s trainers are hand sewn with French calf and buffalo leather, using the Goodyear welt construction. All the care in craftsmanship results in a breathable shoe that ages beautifully and molds to your feet over time. Intriguing, right? I know, I’ve got a couple of their women’s slippers on my wish list . . .
If we could spend an afternoon playing dress up in anyone’s closet, the ever so imaginative Charlotte Olympia would be at the top of our short list – if not only just to slip our feet into her archive of delightfully quirky shoes. So thank you, Coveteur, for virtually fulfilling our closet fantasies with your most recent visit. Um, and those kitten hotel slippers?! Need!!
Remembering the infallible Oscar de la Renta, a visionary that brought so much beauty and elegance to the world of fashion . . .
While it’s not yet cold enough to envelop our necks in huge sheaths of fabric, simply draping a scarf around the shoulders and cinching it with a belt makes it the perfect accessory combination for fall. And as we observed on the runway at Burberry earlier this spring, belting a scarf can effortlessly transform an ensemble in the chicest way. So belts over scarves – are you in?
My heart literally skipped a beat at the sight of Reem Acra‘s glowing headpieces at her fall bridal presentation. It’s such a breathtaking and fresh take on the floral crown, we’re scratching our crafty heads and wondering how we can recreate this über romantic do with battery operated mini led lights . . . we’ll get back to you, promise.
