Fashion Week Shoe of the Day: Rodarte

Nicholas Kirkwood’s imaginative, richly beautiful designs for Rodarte never cease to grab onlookers’ attentions. And this season might be the best yet. Covered platform mid-calf boots were given an artistic edge for fall with a trompe l’oeil double T-strap and topped off with Navajo-style geometric beading around the ankle. A mix of textures, including calf hair and a knit sock lining, combined with the velvet platform and heel and contrast-color beaded stripes make the most of the materials. Creatively paired with ultra-feminine 1950s-style A-line dresses and flowing chiffon evening looks, the overall effect was a beautiful balance of ethereal yet powerful fashion.
