Fall Preview: Eric Rutberg Transparent

For Eric Rutberg Transparent, fall ’13 is all about mixing street style and swank. The 2-year-old label layers strong detailing such as hardware and leather straps atop more refined materials and silhouettes for the season. Lace peep-toe booties get an edge with a black harness and silver buckles, while diminutive gold triangles dot a burnished leather loafer for a subtler take on studding. Muted military influences also come through in lug soles on stiletto boots. Eric Rutberg Transparent retails for $200 to $395 at Piperlime.com, Zappos.com, Issay.com and boutiques such as David’s Shoes of Beverly Hills, Calif.; Koko & Palenki in Miami; Eve’s Apple in Baton Rouge, La.; and DNA in Brooklyn, N.Y.
