Hi there fellow shoe lovers, here are some delicious shoe designs I came across a few months ago (but didn’t have the time to post).

Sophia Kokosalaki

Kokosalaki is a Greek designer who’s not so new in the fashion scene, having been at the helm of the legendary House of Vionnet in 2006, but now running her own fashion line. Although her shoe collection is quite modest, I must admit I am head over heels with them.

Below are shoes from her A/W 09 collection. Isn’t the over-heel just marvellous? I first saw a similar idea by United Nude, then I wasn’t quite keen on the block heel, but Kokosalaki made the idea much more fluid and fearsome.

Raphael Young

Raphael Young’s shoes are still quite elusive in the mass market, but he’s definitely someone you should watch out for if you’re a huge fan of architectural fierce shoes.

Chrissie Morris

Lots of shoe lovers out there might be acquinted with this briliant shoe designer by now. Her trademark stingray and python combination is still evident in her S/S 10 collection. This time though she has veered towards the art deco period and combined the most luscious colours with ingenious piping, which happens to be my favourite detail in shoes and bags.
