Designer Shoelight...Aperlai

I have mentioned a few times in some of my posts throughout the blog that I might come up with a section where I will feature some shoe brands/designers that aren't as famous or as well known as the Louboutins, the Choos and the Blahniks. Basically shoe brands who are totally unknown or aren't mentioned and worshipped as much as the said brands.

I've decided to call this section the "Designer Shoelight" and will do it once a month. I know, I know its so corny and maybe silly, but this IS a shoe blog so most of everyhting here is really all about shoes, shoes and more shoes. (for some of you who didnt get it, it's spotlight with "shoe" instead of "spot" teehee) So I come up with corny names like these and withdrawal shoe-toms.

ANYWAY, to get to the point, this month's shoelight will be Aperlai.

I first wrote a post about Aperlai because I loved their shoes so much but didn't know anything about the brand (see post here.) I've been meaning to do the shoelight but never got around to it till now.

So it's a little bit hard to find a whole LOT of info about this brand. They have a website yes, and they're sold in a lot of online stores but they don't have an "about" link like most websites do where they talk about their beginnings and history and etc.


What I do know though, is that Aperlai was launced in 2009 by Srdjan Prodanovic, Alessandra Lanvin, and German designer Burak Uyan. They have a lot of unique designs that makes use of different architectural shapes, exotic skins and textures. According to Alexandra Lanvin, Aperlai is for the confident women and lists Katherine Hepburn, Edie Sedgewick and Sofia Loren as her style icons because they have strong identities and are spontaneous and charming. Today their designs have been spotted on these modern day icons/celebrities like Ginnifer Goodwin, Gwyneth Paltro, Kate Bosworth and Naomi Watts.

Here are some shoes from their fall winter 2011 collection that I really like or find unique.

Even though this collection is pretty young (started only in 2009) I can see that this will definitely be one of those brands to watch out for. They have pretty designs, are unique and they are all such statement shoes which I really love! If I had an unlimited budget, I would definitely stock up on them now! Their spring collection is so pretty too!

Hope you like my first designer Shoe-light of the month.
