Spring Preview: Anyi Lu

Designer Anyi Lu updated classic silhouettes with exotic touches for a walk on the wild side this season. “A mix of print leathers such as python, croc, gator and tortoise shell adds a multilayered detail [when] combined with soft nappa, tribal canvas and shiny patent,” said Lu. While the designer opted for novelty materials for retro wedges and Mary Jane styles, the color palette is neutral, allowing for only a hint of tomato red. Retailing from $385 to $445, the collection is available at retailers including The Tannery in Boston; Arthur Beren in San Francisco; Joseph in Memphis, Tenn.; and Stanley Eisenman in Fort Worth, Texas.
