Mayumi’s vogue talk: Shoes – Spring 2013


    Hi everyone,


Do you ever wonder why most women are obsessed with shoes?  I read somewhere that it is because our feet are the last part of our bodies to change when we start gaining those unwanted kilos. I guess that means shoes can make us feel beautiful and confident regardless if we were a size 0 or an 18.  I do not know if this is true, but I know why I like them. Shoes are just beautiful, expressive, and great works of art! They just have this uncanny ability to make me feel very feminine and sexy. Some psychologists claim that women are wired to equate power with heights. There is some truth to that. Have you noticed that most women who call the shots are wearing high heels? Even Angela Merkel subscribes to that.


 Well girls, going back to my shoe round up for this season – I can hardly wait to share with you my latest finds on the dazzling shoe trends for this lovely time of the year so here they are…


Vivienne Westwood, Roland Mouret, and Isabel Marant combined eye-catching prints, iridescent snakeskin, and metal studs with denim and leather.



Chalayan and Christian Dior had different perspectives in redesigning the classic sling back.



The sculpted suede plexi wedges by Stella McCartney are just comfortable and lovely.


Chloe shines with its mirror calfskin pointed sling back and pumps.


Chanel’s lambskin striped block sandals with cap and open toe



Yohji Yamamoto casual and ultra comfortable flat foot wear.



Guy Laroche exudes Parisian chic with these creative geometric stacked heels.



Carven’s block heels with a touch of retro.


Givenchy cone heels with elastic ankle and PVC strap sandals.


Dolce and Gabbana’s bright festival colours  that come in wedges and flats


Marni’s comfortable clogs and elegant sling back



Fendi’s geometric designs that remind me of the Sydney opera house, are a must-haves.

The ever elegant whites and nude of Valentino
