Paris Shoe of the Day: Givenchy

Paris Shoe of the Day: Givenchy
A spring ’12 look from Givenchy

Minimalist sandals are taking hold this season, and at Givenchy on Sunday, nude ankle-strap sandals were paired with everything from cropped cigarette pants to sequined mini-dresses. But they were not without key signature details, such as silver locking hardware on the straps and a blade-like stiletto that appeared to be dipped in metal. Sharp tailoring was the centerpiece of the ready-to-wear collection, and this focus carried into the footwear through sharply angled soles that definitely made a point for spring.
