If you’re missing the transparent plastic stilettos and whatnots from the 2010-2011 fashion seasons, Fendi Spring Summer 2014 is your go-to shopping destination. And if you’re totally addicted to anything gradient, bet all on Fendi’s seasonal ombre!
Studying the stylists books for Spring 2014 and discovering that graphic print is SS14 must was, I’m certain, heaven on fashion Earth for Karl Lagerfeld who issued a very graphic collection. Take that and add layers of sheer fabric to obtain the visuals of the Fendi Spring Summer 2014 collection. A graphic fashion game of peek-a-boo with strapped ombre sandals and madly beautiful gradient bags!
Speaking of sandals and bags, let’s take a closer look (warning: picture heavy story, hit the jump to see all the images):

If you dream of wardrobes like Katy Perry’s or Blake Lively’s, you need to read the following, to know what to you must wear next spring!
Fashion is moving fast so here we are, forget NYFW, and LFW, start discussing about Milan Fashion Week with Gucci Spring Summer 2014. An unmistakably sensual collection playing with loose shapes, oversized details, straps, fringes and .. did I say loose already?
The word describing Frida Giannini’s SS14 collection for the house of Gucci was ‘activewear’. Sure, there were a lot of references to clothes we’d wear on our way to the gym, but the embroidery and the fringe details were so careful, minutiose and sensual that you’d more likely think loungewear than treadmill sessions!
Let’s take a look at the shoes and bags conceived by Frida Giannini’s team for Gucci Spring Summer 2014 (oh, and by the way, Blake Lively was indeed, seated Front Row at this show! Right next to Anna Wintour – convince yourself here):

Fashion is, once more, gravitating towards shoes. Forget the it status of a handbag, all eyes are now on the feet and on the soles.
Inexorably addictive, the power of the shoe holds me in its laces and squeezes me further into shoemania with every fashion show walking the runways of the world. Last week it was all about New York’s fashion week shoes, now it’s London’s fashion week shoes and tomorrow Milan. I’m stalking the shoes of the fashion week. Would you care to join me?
The spectacle of shoes was complete with Mary Katrantzou. But so it happens with her each and every time: once she’s into something, she’ll be twisting and turning it all the way! Can you believe her oh-so-famous and coveted prints were now about shoes? Yes! Shoes-dresses, shoes-pants. Shoes-skirts, shoes-tops! laces here, eyelets there, shoes on up, shoes on down. Click for more shoes!

You’re a fashion follower but you want your wardrobe to be both stylish, trendy and practical, active? Vivienne Westwood Red Label could have some interesting fashion points for you in the Spring Summer 2014 collection!
Dame Viv is the perfect fashion activist. Dressing up and acting up like a fashionista with a conscience, Vivienne Westwood is always militating. Her tireless creative self is projecting fights on the catwalk and she’s proposing haute arms for her stylish soldiers. Gorgeous sandals and ankle booties are just a modest part of her militant arsenal!
But oh, what a fashionable way to state your mind! (don’t stop here, there’s so much more after the jump!)

Need some seriously grown up footwear for the next summer? Here’s where you need to get your fashion inspiration from!
Watching yesterday’s Burberry Spring Summer 2014 collection during the London Fashion Week is exactly that: yesterday – next to the collection concocted by Tom Ford for the upcoming warm season! I believe that when he received the stylists recommendations reports which read ‘simplicity’ and ‘romantic’ he made a nice, warm chimney fire out of them! He brought in the leather armies and the lace soldiers to help him put together a very mature, confident sensuality which he then sprayed on paper and voila! Tom Ford Spring Summer 2014 just happened!
But let’s focus on the shoes: my God! have you seen those tanned t-strap leather sandals? I almost chocked while sipping on my fancy cup of green tea when I saw the leather tint and those metal details and metal high heels that look just like unfinished, alluring sentences! (more shoes after the jump!)

Want to know fashion as it’s being made? Fresh off of the catwalk, the next season’s sandals for your eyes only!
The Burberry 2014 Spring Summer fashion show happened just hours ago and was self-explanatory for someone who would like a short debrief of the Spring Summer 2014 fashion trends: simple, really feminine and… did I say simple already? Rainbow hued sandals like these will surely be replicated in our dear street fashion chains (such as Zara or H&M) and we’ll try to keep an eye out for them. But until the moment we’ll add sandals like these to our wardrobe’s inventory, let’s take a closer look at the runway presentation and see the footwear we need for Spring Summer 2014!

Downscaling high fashion or upscaling regular wear? I will be drawing a general conclusion as to what we’re expecting from the Spring Summer 2014 season in terms of main trends and style directions. However, until then, I am, malgre moi, in a witch hunt on the New York Fashion Week’s catwalks.
What I am chasing after? Sandals. Why? Because I’m simply trying to determine who’s who and who’s replica is better when it comes to the new utilitarian sandals walking up and down the catwalks of the next season. Models should be happy as these sandals do offer comfort before anything. But are we? How will we know which are the utilitarian sandals we knew and loved and which are the haute fashion utilitarian sandals?
I signaled the appearance of such footwear in the Trina Turk Spring 2014 collection presentation. Here I am again, on a case study talking about the Edun Spring 2014 runway.
