Designer Shoelight...Gaetano Perrone

It's been a looong time since my last Designer Shoelight Post (last one was this) and it's a shame because there are so many fantastic shoe designers that we don't often hear about. I promise that I will do this more often!

Today's Shoelight is on Gaetano Perrone. He is an Italian designer who's had work experiences under household names like Antonio Berardi, Kenzo, Sergio Rossi, Gianvito Rossi, Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior. While working in Alexander McQueen, it was there he honed his skills and abilities to create walking pieces of art with attention to detail and lots of creativity. As head of the design department in Salvatorre Ferragamo, he learned to create products that are classic yet modern.

Feminine and strong - these are the attributes that's supposed to make anyone wearing it feel. The shoes have vibrant colors, rich textures and interesting details.

His collections have all these unusual but pretty designs like the white d'orsay pumps above. They look like they have pretty petals overlapping each other! Unique and still wearable. Shoe art, but also shoe-ready-to-wear! (haha pun may or may not have been intended! ;p)

Other than vibrant colors, he also makes use of neutrals and instead of making them look like the usual ones out there, he designs them into something fresh and modern. Definitely a shoe designer to watch out for! Click HERE to visit his website.

Wishing you all a shoe-filled weekend!

Sexy Stiletto Saturdays : Oscar Tiye

The two circles found at the back of this shoe really reminds me of Mickey Mouse. Don't you guys think so? It's pretty cute actually! Other than that, this pair is actually a really very sexy pair of stilettos. It has a gorgeous black satin texture, dainty straps and a beautiful high stiletto heel. What do you guys think?

Olgana Paris Dahlia Suede Ankle Wrap Sandal

I've mentioned several times here just how much I am loving the low block heel. I've featured the style several times and even my own shoe line Sala Chaussures have made several versions of it. I am very much partial to the more feminine and dainty versions and I love that other designers are coming out with so many pretty styles like these ones from Olgana Paris. I love the gorgeous blush color plus the flower embellishment adds just the right element of femininity and the dangling leaves on the ankle straps finishes up the whole shoe perfectly. What do you guys think of this Pair?

Aennis Eunis Sense Leather Pumps

It’s the first time I’ve featured this brand and honestly also the first time I’ve actually heard of it. I am so glad that I recently discovered Aennis Eunis - a shoe brand worn by no less than Queen Rania of Jordan. Their pairs are absolutely stunning and I would love to talk more about this brand but I will reserve a full brand feature and separate post for the "Designer Shoelight" section. For now let us talk about this particular pair. What else can I say, this pair absolutely gorgeous. The construction an the details are perfect. It has a beautiful high arch and  stunning gold details that complement the basic black  color.  What do you guys think of this pair?
