Designer Shoelight : Alexandre Birman

Resort 2014 - Clarita

I've been posting about Alexandre Birman shoes for a while in the blog and admiring his style and aesthetics ever since I heard about the brand. You may or may not know that Alexandre Birman has shoes, shoes and more shoes running in his blood. Ever heard of the Brazilian Shoe brand Schutz? His family has been in the footwear industry in South America since the 1970's.  Schutz is one of the Brands that is produced in his family's factory.

Alexandre Birman is a Brazilian designer who grew up surrounded by shoes. He has designed and acted as director for the brands of the family's company, namely Arezzo & Co. and Schutz. These brands are mainly sold in Brazil and have quite a number of followings. Schutz as mentioned by Alexandre Birman in one interview is the number one most followed shoe label in the country. (they are actually starting to branch out to other countries, like the US)

Alexandre Birman decided to start his eponymous line in 2008. Where Schutz is aimed at younger women and has a price range of 200 to 300 dollars, Alexandre Birman was geared to a more older and sophisticated set. It is also more high end with a focus on luxury, femininity and sophistication. He has a penchant for exotic skins like lizard, ostrich and crocodile.

I absolutely adore his design and style aesthetics. His shoe designs have everything that I ever want in a shoe : clean lines with a touch of style and color, perfect arches and infinite chic and sophistication. I once read in an interview that though Alexandre Birman is not against giving away shoes to celebrities for publicity, he still prefers that they pay for it. Meaning he wants these famous people to really like his shoes and not advertise just because they are paid. It just goes to show how confident he is in the design of the shoes. You can see that his desigs justify that confidence because they are all just really beautiful! I can't wait to see his future collections!

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?

Sergio Rossi Velvet Beaded Heel D'orsay Pump

Opulent and decadent are two words I would use to describe this pair from Sergio Rossi. It features gorgeous deep purple velvet uppers with the back part and block heel covered almost entirely in beads. Even with all those factors, I still think this pair is extremely wearable, I would totally wear these with jeans and a white shirt!! It  is such a gorgeous pair! What do you guys think?
