Best Shoes from NY Fashion Week: Alexander Wang

This shootie cutie is no pushover.Fashion week has come and gone, and the critiques are up.  To give an overview of the week, I’m summarizing the shoes from the top five shows, according to The Fashion Time Magazine.  Today’s designer:  Alexander Wang. Mr. Wang expressed the edgy side of the dark economic times in his designs, which included “bondage leggings” and variations on a universal theme given the economic meltdown:  black.  Until the economy turns around, black will continue to be chic.  Add interesting textures, throw in a few sequins, and you have the Wang show.  The designer chose mid-calf boots with buckles and laces to complete the cyber-punk theme.

Vince Camuto’s Calto shooties would slide right into Mr. Wang’s lineup.  Shown above, the Calto’s shiny patent exterior is complemented by unexpected stitching patterns.  This shootie is black but anything but bland.

The Osmonds were never this cool.

If the Calto is a little too uptown for your tastes, you might try Joy Chen’s Gemma instead. Woven fabric encircles Gemma’s buttery leather upper, lending a Western flair to a chic shootie.  Strut around in a pair of Gemmas and you’ll feel like a rock star that can sing along to every Johnny Cash song.  A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll never looked better.

    I like the little number on the top left. And I agree – black will be popular as long as the economy is looking dismal, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Case in point, the interesting textures and stitching.
