THE SHOE

Design duo Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra teamed with New York shoe company Schutz to whip up floral heels with earthy prints created by layering geographical photos and maps. The fabrics on the shoes are also materials we'll see in the new ready-to-wear collection.
THEY SAID "Schutz has a minimalist sensibility that speaks to sculptural form and a sense of modernity without forsaking a certain sensuality and sexiness. Our own collection shares these ideals, and we love how our two aesthetics speak to each other."

Who needs the sky when you can look down and see the stars on Mirano's galactic gold-flecked ankle booties?

THE SHOE

A shoe for Storybook Land? Check out the carved-out scrolls on these heeled oxfords.
HE SAID "The inspiration behind these heels is 'baroque military'-but with a fun twist, like they're on leave for the weekend. The scrolls deconstructed the heels a bit, making them a fun match for these menswear-inspired oxfords."

THE SHOE

Lundsten added punch to Ciabni's tried-and-true neutrals with whittled heel shapes. The result: A wear-anywhere shoe that's anything but basic.
SHE SAID "I had a great experience working with Julia once before. She interprets my aesthetic beautifully. Her graphic, architectural edge is a nice complement to my clean, fluid silhouettes."

THE SHOE

The quirky Rhode Island-based designer took wedge sneakers to the next level-literally!-last season, when she collaborated with Converse kicks to create a custom detachable platform. This season, expect more sky-high kicks, sneakers attached.
SHE SAID "This collection is dedicated to the work of my geneticist parents. After exploring the human body through microscopic images and slides of chromosomes, I was inspired by the shapes of the various viruses, crystals, and molds. The collection, much like science, plays on the idea of structure versus creativity and how the two coincide."
