Lori Andre and Sam Edelman share a moment over this hot-cha five-incher at the shoe shows last week in New York. We love the metallic finish and the classy Art Deco detailing that reminds us of the grand entrance of the Empire State building by way of Fritz Lang's Metropolis. This shoe arrives any second now! Keep an eye on our Sam Edelman selection and snap it up. Can you even imagine how hot this would be for holiday partying? Neither can we. Oh, this was also the featured shoe in Edelman's national ad campaign, so don't dally. These will not be here long.
What we can imagine is some very exciting moments in spring when the new Sam Edelman arrives. Strappy sandals are in abundance, as are men's details (especially oxfords). A strong theme we see running through the collection is an experimentation with ultimate clashing: still more studs in deliberate patterns, espadrilles with tie-dye thongs, rhinestones and snakeskin and leather. It all works toward ornamentation overload. Effusive embellishment. A visual barbaric yawp that talks of excess, optimism and restless curiousity. In short, joie de vivre. And with snow on the ground in Chicago, a little joie is a comforting prospect!
