“What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially these days, when humans come into contacts so quick. Fashion is an instant language”-Miuccia Prada
To me one of the greatest aspects about fashion is footwear. I absolutely love shoes. I’ve had some really awesome shoes too! I actually enjoy sneakers more in all honesty, I find that with my height and personality I can dress a sneaker up or dress it down. They always give me a little flair and pizzaz to my otherwise monotone wardrobe. Lately, I’ve become obsessed with Cinzia Araia and even wrote about the brand for a marketing project for school…..however, there is very little information that can be found!
It happened that I was on the site www.luisaviaroma.com and decided to take a look at sneakers that is where I discovered Philipp Plein. German born, Swiss based Plein, has had this company that designs for both men and women for over 10 years.Surprising, exclusive, luxurious is the brand in which was created using high quality materials to create a feeling of Rock ‘n’ Roll and high-end luxury combined. A luxury splurge in fact it is with most sneakers starting at around $740 and up. These pieces are definitely going to bring the shock and awe factor when entering your credit card numbers.
Also designing clothing, last year he made headlines when famed transsexual model Lea T. opened and closed his women’s fashion show. In the headlines again recently after his recent show in Milan, in which models were toting around military guns and he opened with Ed Westwick from The CW‘s Gossip Girl!
As much as it looks like you could Do-It-Yourself, you wouldn’t be able to recreate it. Making a flashy, yet very chic appearance into the fashion forum Gienchi shoes have already made their debut in high-end magazines such s Vogue and have become the accessory to have among fashionistas and celebrities. Looking at these shoes you have to wonder, the person that could put these on and feel empowered.Almost all the shoes incorporate the usage of studs and if they are lacking that, they have pizazz with a great color! The Gienchi wearer is one that is unapologetic, bold, edgy and doesn’t do well without being the center of attention. Gienchi for the individual that is dedicated to preserving their flashy attitude and being really fabulous! “Girl, You Better Slay!”
Which brings us to Camilla Skovgaard, who designs impeccable women’s footwear to begin with but these sneakers are absolutely amazing. Futuristic yet minimal at the same time, this hot little ticket right here would probably be fierce with skin-tight cigarette pants or shorts with an oversized boyfriend sweater for a cool summer day.
I think these would be great a shoe for next season as well. I love the shark-like effect that Camilla created on the bottom of her pieces as well. It is probably extremely comfortable for walking as well. Girls, GET THIS SHOE!!! I just can’t stress it enough. Amazing!
I love all the concepts behind the shoes and the ones that I could see myself wearing would actually be the Skovgaard sneakers as well as the Gienchi. Those are up my alley and Gienchi just scream “LOOK AT ME!”
