Last week we told you that Proenza Schouler had announced that they would be releasing a footwear line. We just got a sneak peak of one of the styles and I have to say that I think it represents the designers well and is true to their aesthetic. I love the traingular heel and the contrast in materials and colors. The shoe is very unique – definitely a statement piece – the kind of shoe you build outfits around. The duo has also designed other styles including ballet slippers, loafers, lace-up sandals and heels and will be available in the upcoming resort season. The shoes will range in price from $300 to $3,000 with an average cost of $685. When asked the next logical question about when a bag range is coming out, Lazaro Hernandez stated: “It’s because we didn’t have anything to say yet. The entire market is so dense with bags and everything else, that until we found something original and specific to say, we didn’t want to say anything. We don’t do anything unless we have something to say.” All I know is that I can’t wait to see what they have to “say.”
