OK – do I have your attention now? Lane Crawford at IFC recently welcomed the arrival of the one and only Sam Edelman. You may know him from that iconic Lorissa pump bedazzled in femme fatale spikes. You may also know him from the 90’s brand, Sam & Libby, which he founded with his wife.
In the 90s, women would clamour and scream just to get a peep of this high heel hotshot! While we were all very excited to meet the face behind the footwear, we kept things relatively tame… that is until we saw all the variations of the Lorissa pump and all the other goodies that the brand has on offer!
When it comes to shoes, more is more! My favorite was the leopard t-strap peep toe; it has prints, platforms, fur, studs, peep-toes, t-straps, and the thinnest little pencil heel! I could see these being those little naughty shoes that hide among all your sensible pairs and only make an appearance when you are feeling a little risqué! Valentines is on the horizon you know!?!?
Although the studs and spikes lure us all in, Sam told me that it is the ballet flats that the HK women really make a run for. I loved the nude snakeskin pair and could see myself living in those this spring with some rolled up skinny jeans. He also had the cutest pair of zebra striped sling backs with a demure kitten heel that would be perfect paired with summer skirts!
So head over to Lane Crawford IFC and see what spikes your interest this season!
