Italian shoe designer Alberto Guardiani brings us a collection of shoes inspired by travellers, jetsetters and lipstick. The result is a collection of shoes that are sure to stop people in their tracks as they marvel at what's going on south of your ankles.
The collection is all about the self-reliant woman who can do anything in her Guardiani kicks. The collection has a rock soul feel to it with items inspired from biker fashion to 70s shag hippy. Lets walk through the different themes taking place in this FW '11-'12 line..
This collection is a journey down folk alley, starting from square-heeled boots with Mongolian fur revers - a playful remainder of the 70’s -, and moving onto fringed ankle boots that intermittently show their precious side with laminated golden leather, ala 90s.
Texan-style boot embroideries leave the prairies where cowboys roam to decorate the bootlegs of Cuissard boots inlaid with Swarovski crystal sequins. Night sandals get hippie-chic with wool pompoms.
Black ankle boots in leather and suede, biker boots covered in buckles and boots with shaved shearling inlays reinterpret a rocker woman with a free spirit who wears aggressive heels and throws on an aviator jacket to head around the globe.
