Paris Shoe of the Day: Givenchy
Givenchy RTW Fall 2011

For fall ’11, big changes are in store. Navy is the new black and velvet is the new silk. Rich shades of midnight blue emerged on the runway as a sophisticated alternative to basic black, while soft silk velvet replaced satin as the evening material of the moment. Mary Jane styles are also a major trend in the ladylike movement taking over the catwalks and showrooms this season. Riccardo Tisci went for the trifecta with this elegant pointy toe pump. A wire-like ankle strap, sleek velvet and the midnight-blue hue combine to make this style an ideal day-to-evening choice for fall.
