Paris Shoe of the Day: Yves Saint Laurent

Paris Shoe of the Day: Yves
Yves Saint Laurent fall ‘11

There’s something magical about metallics that means they never go out of style. And Yves Saint Laurent proved that on the runway last night. Showing a sophisticated collection of tailored tweeds and flowing silk and chiffon frocks with sheer paneling, YSL brought back the magic, with day looks grounded by lace-up booties and feminine evening looks paired with metallic peep-toes. Rather than decide on just one color, the layered platform styles combined both gold and silver leather with an asymmetrical Mary Jane strap across the vamp and a sculpted silhouette. Here, the collection’s best shoe exhibits gold rolled leather crisscross straps with silver trim for an overall rich layered effect adapted from the ready-to-wear.
