With a variety of options unraveling in front of us, the quest for the perfect pair of shoes becomes a fun yet challenging project to embark on. Alessandro Pianta’s decision to leave women clothing designs aside and to focus all his creative energies towards shoe designing has been widely applauded by fashionistas and fans who agree that the designer has found his true calling. His spring/summer 2012 shoe collection definitely supports this theory and provides a multitude of modern and uber stylish options for every woman.
The adherence to the color blocking trend invariably stands out yet the focus on classy, wearable shoes with the potential to be universally appealing makes the collection a true eye candy. Bold tones are the spice of the collection, with fuchsia, lime green, turquoise or purple tones being considered as the hottest tones of the new season. From spicing up nude toned pointy toe pumps by adding a punch of color to mixing strong tones for added edgniess, the perspective is adapted to various types of style preferences.
Aside from reflecting the season’s most notable trend, the designer also brings back pointy toe shoe styles which have received less attention this season despite being preferred by many reputable designers. The styles of choice leave absolutely no room for error when trying to identify the dominant styles of the season: platforms and sandals win the style race this season. And while the grand part of the collection is dedicated to silhouette enhancing killer heeled alternatives, medium heels for added support are considered to be the next best thing. With elegance as the main objective, no chunky heels have room in the new collection.
Along with color, texture contrasts greatly contribute to the chic allure of the sandals. A touch of sheen, fabric or the leather-suede mix immediately bring the designs to a new dimension that moves them even higher on the covetable shoes mental note list. Classy and elegant, modern and versatile, the shoes from the newest Alessandro Pianta collection sure put the designer’s craftsmanship in the spotlight and propels his name in the fashion industry.
