Fall Preview: Thierry Rabotin

Designer Thierry Rabotin has hit the fall party circuit with evening looks defined by simple elegance. Shunning stilettos, he has dressed up wedges and mid-heels in rich suedes, shiny patents and shimmery sequins. Rabotin has put the focus on billowy bows, girlie ruffles and ornaments straight out of the jewelry box. Retailing from $365 for shoes to $535 for booties, the line is available at Arthur Beren in San Francisco, Hanig’s in Chicago and Harry’s in New York.
