Carmen Marc Valvo introduces Calzature footwear Fall 2013, shows Ted Gibson Pink hair

Ted Gibson’s team showed Pink Chalk tipped hair at Carmen Marc Valvo

While the model’s legs carried beautiful shoes. All part of the announcement that H.H. Brown is  launching Carmen Marc Valvo footwear for Fall 2013.

Footwear styles from the soon-to-launch collection were featured today on the designer’s runway during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Valvo’s Fall 2013 collection, made up of outstanding eveningwear and perfectly tailored pieces, gave a nod to a magnificent punk, baroque theme.  This story was conveyed in the footwear through the dark yet elegant color palette and discerning silhouettes. Plush suede and rich leather in black and burgundy highlight the looks and encompass the season’s inspiration.

 

Three standout footwear styles were featured on the runway. The styles include: BETH, a feminine bootie accented with sleek mesh and a demure bow; ELSIE, a timeless mary-jane updated with a modern silhouette and double strap, pointed closure; and MARA, an of-the-moment pointed top pump, with a distinguishing double wrap ankle strap.

Carmen Marc Valvo Calzature will be launching for Fall 2013. This footwear collection will be the finishing piece to the World of Carmen, as the design house currently produces couture, ready-to-wear, eyewear, swimwear and fur. Carmen Marc Valvo Calzature is manufactured in Italy and is crafted in the finest Italian leathers. Extraordinary craftsmanship, impeccable fit and distinguishing details are factors that are synonymous with Carmen Marc Valvo’s designs, and these attributes are the true elements of his footwear collection.

Christian Louboutin – Fall 2011: Knockoffs you can live with

Not  your Whistler’s Mother’s shoe? 

Louboutin’s Fall 2011 Ad Campaign is creating a revival of sorts that art teachers and historians would envy - getting people in droves to notice the masters. 

Reportedly shot by Peter Lippmann, the new Look Book features recreations from famous paintings, updated with a little Lou.  The resulting photos are beautiful, with a little “Where’s Waldo?” thrown in.  Although a similar feel pops up now an again (the old “models with ballgowns and lions is back – I still have my 2005 Vogue with Drew Barrymore) this is the first time in memory art is imitating, um, art so specifically. To see originals and the rest of the campaign, click the gallery. Do you have a favorite?

Note: Although many are saying the ‘shoe in the lap portrait’ is Francois Clouet’s “Elizabeth of Austria” ( a headshot) I feel the recreation is closer to Petrus-Paulus Rubens portrait d’Elisabeth de Bourbon (Anne d’Autriche)

United Nude: Architectural Shoes for 2011

 

 Exclusive by Design, Not by Price

 Structure and detail was on the runway for 2011, and United Nude shoe design concepts fit perfectly into play here. 


Architect Rem D Koolhaas and shoemaker Galahad Clark created United Nude, and the line has shot off. New flagship stores are being created in Amsterdam, New York, Shanghai and London. The growth is due to the exciting blend of design and shapes, new constructions and materials “pushing boundaries of what is possible.”

In addition to the existing line, new styles and a mensline have been introduced. 

The United Nude Hollow is in the classical style dress shoe with leather moulded outsole and hollowed carbon fibre heel.  Gorgeous look that keeps it classical without going generic.

I wish I could show you them all here.

Some of my favorites include the Pin Buckle, Haiku, Abstract, Tangle Sandal, Ultra Loop and Mobius Slide.  try Endless.com for purchasing.

Events, Milwaukee: Donald J. Pliner at Boston Store Bayshore

Chicago-born Donald J. Pliner, that designer of footwear that is sexy but of wearable proportions, will be at Bayshore Boston Store tomorrow, May 7th, from 10am-3pm.  He’ll be showing his collection and providing consultations, discussing trends and – if you bring in your shoes or purchase a pair – will be signing. 

This gives me impetus to dig out my gorgeous hot pink kitten heels with the butterfly string (it has just been too cold to wear them).

Mr. Pliner is also selling a logo shirt for $25 at this event where proceeds will benefit Donald Pliner’s Peace for Children Foundation.

See you in the shoe section!

Prada at TJMaxx

Apocalypse Now

Yep, that was me picking my jaw off the floor after I spotted these on my way out.  There were only three styles on display.  Is this a special line for TJMaxx?  Even I have limits. No, not my credit card (well yes, but) it’s just that that level of brand should stay on one of the internet auction house sites, IMO.  Does it bother you in the least?

Shane & Shawn Introduce City Smart Laptop Bags

Those twins have done it again. After successfully introducing the world to impossibly comfortable but fashionable shoes, Shane & Shawn broke out with a small handbag collection, mentioned during my interview with the brothers in 2009. They loved the process of expanding their line in a new direction, so when they were asked to created a series of laptop bags for Best Buy they enthusiastically went to work.

The Shane & Shawn ’City Smart’ collection has launched exclusively at Best Buy in Soho (622 Broadway, NYC) and features four, full-grain leather bags designed for 15″-17″ laptops.  Eight different colors (black, brown, pink, red, silver, tan white and powder blue) and metal rivets fancy up the exterior with a soft felt inner lining. 

If you are in New York you can pop on over to the Soho store or order by phone at 212-673-4067 or visit Shane & Shawn online.

Kim Kardashian’s Shoe Dazzle

kimkardashian_shoedazzleAnd so it begins.  It is brilliant actually.  A shoe purchasing plan that gives to pumpophiles what Bag Borrow and Steal did for luxury handbag rental.  Except you get to own.

Kim Kardashian has found a way to address all of the shoe hungry women in the world by creating shoedazzle, a site that, for $40 a month, provides you with your own personal shoe stylist and a pair of shoes into yesteryear.  Here’s how it works:

  • Take a survey to determine your shoe type
  • A stylist will pick out five (5) pair for you
  • Select your first pair, you are charged and the ‘monthly membership society’ begins

Exchanges are free, and if you are quick enough on the trigger you can skip a purchase on the months you don’t want shoes.

There are definite pluses to this, but my main question is quality.  The shoes pictured looked very Payless.  There is nothing wrong with that, except you could probably get them for half the price in store.

shoedazzle_shoes_kardashian

I don’t fault KK for tapping into women’s desires for great footwear and, dare I say, the feeling of luxury in a time when people are scrimping and saving left and right.  But where the quality of luxury handbags was without question in the rental program, ShoeDazzle seems to be showing a lot of obvious pleather. For $40 I would probably enjoy the thrill of the hunt at Marshalls or TJMaxx where I could see the workmanship and try everything on for size.

What do you think of this program?  Have you purchased any of the shoes?

Someday my Shoes will Come: Champagne Louboutins Oct 26

Is there a woman alive that can resist this combination?

heel_louboutin

Christian Louboutin and Piper-Heidsieck join forces to release a special Louboutin branded Champagne. Why? Because the holiday season is coming. Is the shoe actually wearable or just for drinking out of? No word, but while I am instantly in love, I hope this doesn’t mean they start going down the “brand everything that moves, and brand it anyway if it doesn’t” Ed Hardy route. Keep it Klassy, Christian!

Coveting a pair? They become available on October 26 via French site Colette.

Dream Stamina, Pt. 1: Shane &Shawn Shoes

Transcript from the Solessence BlogTalkRadio interview with Shane & Shawn Ward of Shane & Shawn Shoes and Boardroom Rock Stars.

~~~

Hello and welcome to Solessence Radio. Today we (are talking about entrepreneurial) Dream Stamina, and featuring Shane and Shawn Ward of Shane&Shawn shoes. The second guest is Marc Paez of ManGlaze Nail Polish. But first up we’ve got Shane & Shawn. Let’s get them on the air.

S&S: Thanks for having us.

Thanks for being on today, how are things

S&S: Really good, just making things happen in NYC and happy to be on the radio

Excellent, well I know you’ve got some big news here to share, but first let’s give people an idea on your background. You started off with DETNY, correct?

S&S: Absolutely. My brother and I are originally from Detroit. We went to the University of Michigan, and right out of college (this is Shane by the way)> I started designing shoes for Adidas, for four years, and then Shawn was working at Chrysler. After four years we decided to move to New York to design our own shoe collection, and we decided to call it DETNY, which is a combination of Detroit – New York. The whole concept behind all of our shoes is that we’re taking our expertise and designing functional, super comfortable, athletic shoes in the athletic shoe industry and combining it with our sense of style – which is really hip, cool stylin’, so people out there who don’t think that really hip, beautiful fashion can be comfortable, then they’re mistaken, as you can find out with our brand.

Patented Memory Foam Comfort System

Right and that’s a really interesting combo to put together. You guys really do have some very sexy shoes, and they’ve been seen all over – red carpet, premieres – you’ve really hit the celebrity circuit. From there, you went on to Shane & Shawn Shoes, and, is that a departure from DETNY?

S&S: DETNY was our sport shoe, and all of the ladies told us “you have to design some really cool, sexy heels that are also comfortable,” so when we started making dressier shoes we called them Shane & Shawn. After having DETNY and SS together for about a year, we decided to make everything together to make it seamless and easier and started to brand ourselves. So everything is now SS, whether it is a sport shoe or stilettos.

Why don’t you name some locations where SS can be purchased?

S&S: Right now you can go online at ShaneandShawn.com, Macys NY. We also sell at Zappos.com, Shoes.com, Amazon.com

That’s a pretty good lineup. You know, even though you’ve got the background with design, and the experience, it is still a huge thing to launch your own company. What gave you the guts to do it?

S&S: That’s a great question, because, you know, a lot of people do see my brother and I on TV, in magazines, hear us on the radio – and they only see the glamorous part of it. But actually, starting your own venture, whether it’s in fashion, or whether you want to start your own restaurant or consultancy, it’s actually pretty difficult. You need to make sure all of your ducks are in a row, and I think what really gave us the faith was the fact that we’re both extremely young, we were confident that we would be successful, and we always felt that if we did fail, we could always go back and get a 9-to-5. But without family and a whole lot of responsibility, we felt like it was going to be a great time for us to do that.

So, you had factored in the failure portion as well – and it was still worth it?

S&S: Yeah, definitely. I mean, if you don’t try, you don’t know whether you’ll succeed or fail, and we had enough nerve in us, or were naive enough, to say “Go ahead, let’s go after it”, and it has been great so far. We’ve been full time entrepreneurs, right now, for 6 years, and we’re very, very happy. We tell this joke that if we do fail, we can always go back and live with our mom and she would be the happiest person on the earth if that happened.

Now you mentioned your mom, and you guys are pretty active on Twitter. She has joined you now.

S&S: Yeah, my mom, she’s retired and looking for cool things to do, and we actually set up the account for her and she’s just been hard core in love with Twitter. It has just opened up a new world for her and it’s really doing a cool thing connecting her with a younger generation. The whole idea came about, being her sons, we always received her words of wisdom through text messages, and her cooking tips, and we felt instead of her having to email all of us individually, this would allow her a greater audience and allow others to get some of that uplift that we get on a daily basis. And other people have definitely gravitated towards her, so it’s been fun for her and fun for us as well.

Well she’s really warm, and that comes across. It’s amazing how tight knit of a family you are. Do you have other members working in your company as well?

S&S: Right now we have a cousin so we do have some family, which is really great, but we did have our sister and one of our brothers really active when we first launched the collection.

Now jumping back a bit, you are primarily in the US?

S&S: Now we’re primarily sold in the US, but we do have a couple of accounts in Columbia. That’s really great for us. We do see ourselves as an international brand, and we are in the process of talking to several distributors in Europe.

And as far as your line, who is the contact if someone is interested in checking it out, picking it up for his or her store?

S&S: If someone is interested they should check out www.shaneandshawn.com and also if they want to email they can email at info@shaneandshawn.com

And guys, I feel like we’re sort of racing over the shoes, but can you tell me what’s coming for your Fall line?

Sneak peek Fall ’09 – Aqua Marine Mary Janes with Ruffled Satin Trim
S&S: Absolutely. This fall collection is one we’re really excited about. The whole theme is to go more natural, and when I say more natural I mean kinda quieting down the whole bling aspect of the collection and brining in more natural leathers so that the pieces and all of the ornaments and leathers and suedes can be used with multiple outfits, so it is not so specific to the shoe. We have a few booties in the collection that are going to be marvelous. We actually, in our women’s collection, named a shoe after Sherrie Shepard. We found out she’s a big fan and it is a really beautiful bootie that is suede all over with a really cute textile collar. And in the men’s shoes, we have some rock ‘n roll boots that are going to debut and we def think catch everyone off guard. It’s combining really rugged details you’d find in a workman’s boot, but in a sleek European shape.

That’s really interesting [thinking of times I’d worn Caterpillar boots as a statement, but wishing they could be tough and less construction].

S&S: And also keep in mind, stay tuned, because we launched a very small collection of handbags this past spring, but this fall, in August, we are launching the full line of handbags. So watch out, they’ll be really hot.

So they’ll be available in August?

S&S: Yes.

Are you showing anywhere?

S&S:Yes, we’ll be showing at the WSA show in Las Vegas, July 31-August 2.

That’ll be great, I have heard about those bags. That’s pretty exciting; you are expanding, going new directions. But the biggest thing is that you have just launched this huge, consulting portion of your business – Boardroom Rock Stars.

S&S: (laughs) Yes, this is great. We are really, really excited. It’s a cool name. We basically saw a need out there because there were so many people, whether they were students, or 30 something, or 60 something, they were contacting us asking “How did you guys get started?” , “How did you write your business plan?’, “I want to start a business.” Then, when the whole recession hit, there were so many people who were left without jobs, who really started thinking, “I need to not rely on a 9-5 anymore” and they started to contact us. So it was kinda like great timing, because we’d been getting all of these requests, and we found out there was really no where out there where people could go to learn about entrepreneurship and still relate to the people that were presenting to them in a cool, you know, fun way. So we just launched Boardroom Rock Stars, and it is basically where aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs can come and learn how to launch different companies. And Shane and I are not going to be the only ones having courses on our site; we’ll be having many, many other experts coming on, doing online courses, we’ll have different academies, we’ll have 24 hour entrepreneur packages where people can come and email us any time, day or night and they’ll get a response within 24 hours. We’re really, really excited and check us out at www.boardroomrockstars.com

You’re also not necessarily worried about competition; you’re actually offering a course for people who want to start their own footwear line.

Sketching out ideas for 2010

S&S: Yeah! The thing is there is room for everybody. When we first started our own footwear line five years ago, we had two mentors who had shoe companies who helped us day and night. You know, they gave us detailed contacts, they gave us their PR firms, they gave us everything they knew, and we feel the same way about the next generation of shoe designers. It’s that, there is room for them – they may end up being competition, but there is room. And if you have good product, quality product, and you market yourself right, you’ll be successful no matter how much competition is out there, so we embrace it and we want to share the knowledge.

Where do you recommend people start on the Boardroom Rock Stars, as you have different ‘academies’ as you are calling them.

S&S: Yeah, there are different packages, and I think a really good way is to search the courses section and see if there’s something there that is actually in the field you’d like to know about. But we’re going to be adding two new courses every week. If there is nothing there, I would definitely recommend signing up for 24 hour entrepreneur, which will allow them, that’s a monthly package they can purchase, they can email us anytime and we also get on the phone every now and then with them. And the cool thing is we’re doing student discounts, so if someone is in undergrad or grad school and they really want to get a head start on the competition, we give them a nice discount on the subscription. So I would say check out the courses page and check out 24-hour entrepreneur as startup packages.

Do you see people joining up in NY to meet you or keeping it all online?

S&S: Oh absolutely. We not only have people in NY reaching out to us since we launched today, but there are people on the east coast in general, some in DC, that want to meet up with us in person and take on that whole Shane and Shawn academy. So we’re seeing it all today, the feedback coming in at a great rate.

I think that’s actually valuable. We touched briefly on your background, but one amazing thing to note is that you hit your $1 million mark in your third year, so you really do have a good track record behind you. You see a lot of people just starting up consulting services, but you do have the experience there.

Shawn and Dean of University of Michigan Engineering – Alumni Awards – Top 5 in the US

S&S: Thanks. You know, we weren’t born with a silver spoon, we’ve built our company from scratch, and I think that’s what we’ll be able to relate to everyone. If someone is out there thinking maybe they can’t accomplish or get to a million dollar business because maybe they didn’t have a silver spoon, we tell them that’s not necessary. We tell them if you have hard work, a great business plan and great mentors, you can make it happen. And even if you do have a silver spoon and you do have a lot of funding, you still want to be as frugal and efficient as possible. You just don’t want to start throwing money around. No matter what background you’re from, we’ll be able to give you the right tips and right information to be successful.

Do you have any additional news you wanted to share about what’s coming up?

S&S: Shawn and I are working on a collaboration with another footwear company so that we can basically offer the styling and the function that you get with the Shane and Shawn collection but at a more affordable price for the masses. That’s something that people on Facebook and Twitter can definitely be in the know, over the next couple of months, or when we launch.

Do you have a name for the line yet?

S&S: We haven’t worked up a name yet, that’s something we don’t want to say now

I wanted to talk about your MADE episode for MTV

S&S: Yeah that was a lot of fun

You guys look sharp – always.

S&S: Thank you.

You were a good choice. How did that happen?

S&S: Well, someone from MTV productions contacted our publicist and asked if we were interested in making over a young guy in Phoenix, Arizona into a ladies man. Not making him over just psychologically, but with his fashion sense. They thought it would be great, and they brought us out there, it was a 5-week process and we had a lot of fun. I mean this guy, he wasn’t the most fashionable guy in the school, he froze up around the ladies, we def worked on his confidence, and we put him through like a boot camp basically, of being ready to talk to the ladies at anytime. We gave him a nice makeover, hair, eyebrows, he lost 20 pounds because he was overweight and we got him into a nice workout regiment. It was so much fun and I think the episode couldn’t have come off better.

Shane and Shawn with Lydia Hearst
Well now how did you guys get so smooth?

S&S: (laughter) You know what, I think it’s a matter of my brother and I; we grew up in a big family. We have two older sisters, tons of cousins, our mom is really special in our life, and I think that has a lot to do with being confident and being able to express yourself.

You’re so good. Like I said, you’re really inspiring and, it’s nice to have good role models around, you know?

S&S: Absolutely.

Well thanks again, loved having you on and good luck to you guys.

S&S: Thank you so much for having us, and keep in touch. Let’s do it again.

You can add them at Facebook, and follow Shane and Shawn and Boardroom RockStars on Twitter. If you’d like to chat with mom and read words of inspiration, follow her here.
