Wait, what? You haven't even seen the first collection yet!
I know, don't worry! I'm having to adjust to fashion-industry-norms and design and prototype new collections way in advance of when they'll actually arrive. It might seem crazy, but right now I'm working on next Summer's collection!
And it's gonna be 1920s, woo! So here's what's inspiring me...
|Mary, Rose, and Edith from Downton Abbey. How can these gals not be inspiring? Particularly it's Rose's shoes in the middle that are so stunning.|
|Shoe Icons: 1920s mary jane in green and ivory. This is typical of the fancy applique look of the '20s.|
|1925 Sears Catalog|
|Simplicityisbliss on Etsy - another great Mary Jane with a cutout/split strap. Again, very typical of the '20s.|
|The Met: Oxfords, 1920s|
|Shoe Icons - reptile skin and leather with cutouts. These are sophisticated, no?|
|Dollhouse Bettie - modern shoes in metallic leather and black sequins. I like the deco t-strap on these.|
|Vintage Dancer - 1929 catalog|
Now I have a lot of work to do!
