With the multitude of shoe trends coming our way, limiting ourselves to the same old types of designs is definitely unnecessary. While the main style directions are already pretty much set, designers provide endless intriguing variations that make us aware of the wide array of possibilities that are incredibly tempting in more ways than one.
The spring 2012 Balenciaga shoe collection is definitely one that cannot be easily forgotten as it has an edgy touch that is very hard to miss. With sharp edges, striking accents and a clever interpretation of the next season’s mainstream tendencies, the latest collection offers a complete fashion experience that is definitely thought-provoking.
Futuristic shapes and animal prints prove to be the winning original combo on which the brand has successfully bet on in order to make its shoes stand out. While certain designs are certainly worthy of the ‘statement shoe’ title, others blend trendy vibes with traditional shapes and make it easier for those who are simply looking for fab accessories that don’t step too far out of the ordinary to find alternatives that fit best in their style comfort zone.
Taking a closer look at the elements that make the designs stand out we can easily realize that it comes down to a few well defined elements: slightly unusual heel shapes, animal prints combined with other fabrics for a higher contrast, interesting cut-outs and buckles as a defining functional element. Together, they form the edgy yet so covetable shoe styles presented.
Get seduced by the multitude of exciting alternatives presented by the luxury label for the upcoming months and give your outfits an effective and impressive style update by adding your personal touch and by breaking out of your normal routine.
