Pre-fall Preview: Jerome C. Rousseau

For Jerome C. Rousseau’s eponymous women’s label, pre-fall ’14 is all about the details. The designer juxtaposed femininity and funkiness on constructions that range from chunky to dainty. Zippers, ample leather straps, metallics and shiny text rev up the edge-factor, while embellishments like a pair of puckered, lacquered lips ensure that even the most ladylike silhouette gets a dose of mischief. Jerome C. Rousseau footwear retails for about $500 to $ 1,100 and is available at major retailers including Bloomingdale’s, Harvey Nichols and Level Shoe District, as well as an array of high-end boutiques.
