As we gear up for New Year’s Eve, let’s look even further ahead, shall we? Here is the one shoe you need to step into spring in style: Paul Andrew’s delightful pump. An uplifting silk print of abstract florals with a contrasting solid heel of grassy green: this garden is in full bloom. Have you seen a more beautiful shoe?
Paul Andrew launched his namesake line in just Spring 2013, and you can get ready to hear a lot more of his name. He has already made a surefooted impression on the snobby shoe world. Not only has he worked with industry greats like Alexander McQueen, Narciso Rodriguez, Donna Karan, and Calvin Klein, he has a vision all his own, one that incorporates timeless sensuality with a supremely modern attitude. He’s my shoe designer to watch, for obvious reasons. As a matter of fact, I’ll go so far as to call him the new Manolo.
With a curvy, low-cut vamp specifically designed to lengthen the look of your legs and a pointy toe that oozes confidence, this is a shoe that will inspire you to walk like a lady or strut like a bitch, depending on your mood. It’s also a shoe you can count on to carry your entire wardrobe into the new season, whether it’s with a LBD or jeans and a tee. Paul Andrew Silk Floral-Print Pointy Pump at Neiman Marcus for $595.
Pair with: Don’t forget the LWD come spring. Thakoon does it the modern way, with his eyelet-peplum shirtdress that brings just a touch of menswear inspiration to unfettered femininity. At Bergdorf Goodman for $1,050.
