Milan Runway Trend: Subtle Charms

Subtlety is back in style. Designers kept their embellishments feeling fresh for fall by starting with classic silhouettes in nude tones and then playing with ton-sur-ton crystals and touches of metallic for extra shine. Jimmy Choo catered to its red-carpet celebrity clients with a finished suede undersole and heel completely encrusted in Swarovski crystals to sparkle from every angle. Le Silla, Burak Uyan, and Edmundo Castillo for Santoni Rose Collection also indulged in glamorous heel interest, while Casadei and Rene Caovilla kept it classic with an elegant jeweled pump and evening sandal. Sergio Rossi mastered the art of the evening bootie with a blush satin style featuring plenty of glitz, but executed it in an understated color palette for an all-around beautiful design.
