Here’s the last installment of the lovely Ruby Slippers we saw at the Ruby Slipper Event at Saks last Thursday. Each pair was lovelier than the other, I definitely have my favorites but they really are truly beautiful in their own way and you can really see each designer’s signatures and themes come through in their Ruby Slipper interpretations. Today’s designer’s include: Stewart Weitzman, Rupert Sanderson, Sergio Rossi, Tibi, Tuleh, Valentino, Vivier, YSL. Check back for pics of the scene at the party, the O.G. shoes and the Saks Fifth Avenue windows.
We had a chance to chat with TIBI’s shoe designer, Amy Smilovic about her inspiration behind creating TIBI’s Ruby Slipper. Smilovic explained that she wanted to bring the Ruby Slipper into the “moment”. Up-dating Dorothy’s shoe to one of Fall’s must have shoe shilouettes, the ankle booty, she wanted to create something tough yet sweet, and felt a croc spat with a Swarovski dipped bow was just that. You’d certainly think twice about messing with the lady wearing these down the yellow brick road! And in her own words “What better to go with gingham?” We couldn’t agree more.
