As a girl who sells shoes for a living, I get a lot of enjoyment from seeing new and inspiring trends emerge in the world of fashion footwear. Rodarte's debut collection of footwear encapsulates everything I love about the brand, their mixing of textures and patterns, as well as their ability to layer and juxtapose with outstanding results.
I'm loving the use of metallic materials or features to tie in with the 70s (disco and other) trend for A/W 2012, eg. Derek Lam, Prabal Gurung, Ralph Lauren and Thakoon.
Other standouts in the collection were Proenza Schouler's woven, almost tribal red and black structured chunky heels, Costella Tagliapietra's orange and taupe heels and SUNO's printed, lace-up bootie.
