Spring Trendspotting

“The one color that’s come out strong everywhere in shoes is green. And there are a few treatments on leather that we’ve already seen — adding a little bit of glitter to it, but not necessarily patent.”
— Todd Hanshaw, DMM, Wynn Las Vegas

“We’ve seen a lot of continuation of the things from last year — from espadrilles to jellies to ballerinas.”
— Jeffrey Kalinsky, Founder, Jeffrey (New York and Atlanta); VP of designer merchandising, Nordstrom

“The hottest trend I saw for 2010 was bold hardware and jewels. Colors for the season are coral, aqua, green, pink and metallic-brights, as well as pastels.”
— Eileen Lewis, Director of fashion strategy, Zappos.com

“There’s a lot of that fallback feeling — getting back to things that you can rely and depend on. It could be clogs; it could be the ballet flats.”
— Tom Mendes, Owner, Plaza Too (New York)

“There’s a whole jeweled sandal movement, everything from tribal with beading to bigger, chunky stones. It’s also going to be cooler to do a mid-heel or a lower heel on a pump for the season because girls now have become so used to their flat sandals and their gladiators, so what’s the dress option for them?”
— Brooke Scott, Fashion director for accessories, Bloomingdale’s
