The Gilded Shoes

For the Fall / Winter 2013 collections embellishment and high tech materials that shine were on overdrive and fashion design took some key elements from interior design and architecture.  Alexandre Mattiussi of Ami combined green suede, black nylon, white mesh and a stripe of metallic blue patent leather to create one of the coolest sneakers of the season.  Carven laser cut black leather to create a new version of the classic lace up wingtip.  Acne channelled Tony Duquette and marbleized fall with a painterly wash of blues and greens.  Marsell transferred art even further onto their lace up shoe with laser cut embossed black leather.  And finally Sergio Rossi previewed their Spring / Summer collection with a gold and black knockout that relates to their Gabriella Crespi collaboration (more on that with Erin Hazelton). Here are some of the favorites that combine cutting edge materials, technology and innovation in men’s footwear and a peek into Spring/Summer 2014.
