Shoes.Of.The.Day: Leopard

Animal skins are always on trend, however for Spring/Summer 2011, skins like Leopards are dominating the catwalks. What makes this particular trend strong is that it carries on for Fall 2011-12 and even Spring 2012. Therefore, get ready to see an onslaught of leopards in stores near you. Designers are creating new and fresher takes by mixing patterns with solid vivid colours, ornaments and hardware and/or mixes of different patterns. Lets see my favorites.


Who: Charlotte Olympia
Leopard print ponyskin pump
Everyone knows by now my love for Charlotte Olympia's design and aestetic as I have posted her shoes before on my blog. Again, she delivers an ultra simple yet super sexy pair of pump that mixes wild and edginess but still remains sophisticated and chic. Love the fire red patent leather mixed with the printed leopard pattern on the ponyskin material. Super high heels, but oh so worth it. Swoon ladies!
How Much:
$1050 Cdn (


Who: Giaco Morelli
Leopard print horsehide loafers
Giaco Morelli is another designer that I have featured before on my blog. I loved everything about his Spring 2011 collection. And this pair of loafers is another example of great details combined creating an exciting pair of shoe. Love the studs which add a "badass" edginess to a normally classic type of shoe. The colours are also great and rich. I definitely need these in my closet, NOW!
How Much: $650 Cdn (

What do you guys think? Too wild for your taste or just the right amount of Swoon worthiness?
