I’m not big on the Evil Eye trend in fashion from an aesthetic point of view. That being said, I’m falling for these Pre Fall 2014 Pierre Hardy Eye Sandal and Pumps. They are obviously influenced by the talisman but I like the quirky and anime like take he’s used in the design of these shoes. I love that the eyes are the most dominate feature on the shoe. The size of the eye and its placement make these shoes look so freaking cute on. In the kitten heel, there is just the perfect amount of toe point showing. It makes me want to squeal with delight.
There are a lot of variations on the shoe. You can see there are kitten heel and regular heel sandal varieties. Pierre has also switched up the materials and colour combinations. He mixed leather, pony and suede. I’m particularly taken with the pony hair sandal in dusty pink, it’s absolutely spectacular.
I haven’t seen any Canadian retailers with the shoes yet but you can find a variety of online retailers out there.
Net-a-Porter and Boutique 1 are selling the black sandal with Net a Porter winning out at $865 to Boutique 1’s $908.
I’m all about the NARS Cosmetics Nail Polish collaborations and this summer shoe designer Pierre Hardy brings his spring summer 2013 colour palette to NARS. There are twelve polishes in total but they are available in packages of two. The colours are complimentary. The Pierre Hardy x NARS Nail Polish collection is:
In June 2008, a new limited edition COLORAMA 2 of only 500 pairs will be sold in a selection of the best stores worldwide.
For its second edition, the colorama’s design is about a disco stained glass, in a pop version, with metallic leather. Each elements constituting the shoe is in a different color, treated in contrasted & random tint areas. Metallics colors shine like precious stones : silver, carbone, rubis, orange, amethyst, sapphire, aquamarine.
