My passion for shoes is probably not my worst kept secret, as it is not a secret at all: while writing this post I am constantly distracted by my new pair of boots from Jil Sander bought earlier today at a private pop-up sale and I am still questioning my flash of joy when I was told at the check-out that the shoes had a further 40% off!
Because ladies, let’s be honest: shoes can give us joy! It is in our nature, we cannot do anything against that, so we better accept it and enjoy that moment of pleasure!
Speaking of moment of pleasure offered by our fellow shoes, let me introduce you to a moment of pure joy of all the senses when I visited Luisa Tratzi temporary shop in Milan during the last Milan Fashion Week, to present SS18 collection. Every time that I head in into their pop-up store, the magic overwhelms me: this time it was the outburst of colors, those summer colors that I love so much: from turquoise to yellow, from tangerine to deep rose, all these colored sandals made me feel blossoming!
The new sculpted heels, the little buckles, the flat shoes, I realized that if I could choose only one pair of them it would be too hard for me! But in the end also this time I found my perfect match: a pair of turquoise sandals with sculpted heel and little buckles that really made me crack since I put my eyes on them! As usual it was hard to leave them there but while leaving I promised myself that one day I will own a pair (I don’t even want to think of which one as I have a favorite pair for every season!).
Luisa is such a talented designer and I am not surprised that she was considered by the American Footwear News one of the 32 worldwide emerging talents. I am so proud of her and I still remember that I was on the front row of her very first Milan fashion show a few years ago and that I loved her (and her shoes!) at first sight!
(I was wearing a vintage skirt from Sine Modus, Mango sweater, Zara earrings and of course, Luisa Tratzi SS18 sandals).
