Fall Preview: Glory Chen

Designer Joy Chen Kolterman has taken a lesson from math class for her fall ’09 Glory Chen collection, which features shoes and bags detailed with geometric shapes and patterns.

The collection’s clean lines are given a feminine touch with hardware fashioned after cosmetic brushes and compacts. The colors, too, come right out of a makeup bag, in rich iridescents, powdery blues and glossy pinks. To keep women comfortably on their toes throughout the day, Kolterman incorporates cushioned footbeds and refined rubber outsoles.

The collection, available at the designer’s New York and San Francisco stores, retails from $325 to $795 for shoes and boots, and $395 to $795 for handbags. The line is now also being presented at wholesale.
