Footwear designers may or may not have been thinking of Destiny’s Child singing “Bootylicious” when creating their fall lineups. But they certainly had booties on the brain. The collections were awash with ankle-high or lower calf-hitting creations, and their incarnations were many. Balmain did a regal, black and gold military style that featured a nine-strap closure over a gilded inset. Roger Vivier’s purple suede version sported cheerful pink, green and blue laces.Francesco Russo showed more detail than normal with a sexy open-toe and open-braided black number that had a hint of dominatrix.
For fall, denim is looking new, chic and, as always, cool, on the runways and on the street. And accessories are no exception. Cross category, from Chanel bags to RumbaTime watches, Louise et Cie heels and even boots by Rihanna, it’s the American staple gone global.
