Look down, then up, and down again. Watching fashion shows during the Fall/Winter ’13 presentations was like viewing a vertical tennis game every time the models walked the runways.
Most of us have stood on an island at some point in our lives. A Caribbean island, Staten Island, the island of Manhattan and my new favorite, island platforms. Having good balance and wanting to tower over everyone else around you are reasons enough to own some island platforms heels. These type of islands come in pairs and cost much less than what some celebs paid for their piece of private land to walk on.
Like the gals, the fellas have their trends for each season, and trying to be focused on noticing the fashion trends is hard work for me, when you guys wear the clothes so bloody well! It’s like a hot dish at a restaurant that gets all the guests worked up, and coming back for more! We all want to know what the main ingredients are involving when making the hot dish of the season. Hate to compare you guys as a meal, but chops are being licked after a walk-on-by moment.
So the ultimate look of the season is the hot dish and the ingredients are the trends.

Let me worship your soles, your pretty, feminine, dainty and simple shoes. Don’t think those adjectives would be used to describe the S/S ’13 shoes we saw on the catwalks during New York Fashion Week. The designs were extreme, chunky, architectural, and colorful. Some soleful creations, are sure to be painful after walking 4 long blocks in New York City, but we shoe pros are well aware there is a little pain for some fashionable gain.
