A Step Above
A favorite designer of celebrities around the world including Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Lea Michelle, Chelsea Paris brings the coveted London look to shoe apparel. Try the python print strappy low & high-heeled sandals or the sexy black and lace ankle boots for the gal who’s a little nice and a lot of rock ‘n’ roll; ChelseaParis.com.
People in London have a great sense of style with a bit of quirky playfulness that I really appreciate. They understand that fashion should be a fun, unique form of expression. Some of the shoe trends for the season include geometric lace details, color-blocking and grown-up fringe elements. The juxtaposition between the geometric lines with the soft, romantic quality of lace really appeals to me. For my Chelsea Paris Fall Collection, I was inspired by the streets of London and the chic edginess that you see while walking through the various parts of the city. I have a great open-toed suede and lace heeled bootie called the ODE that is available at Capretto for Fall. It incorporates these design elements. It’s sexy but still elegant and sophisticated — it’s definitely a versatile shoe with a lot of impact!”
