Adidas Originals by PORTER Capsule Collection

Designer Shoes

IMAGES: DSMS

Think of Porter (Yoshida, not International) and you’ll recall its signature black nylon bags with a pop of orange in the interior. Think of Adidas, and you’ll get… well, pretty much everything under the sun these days, with their NMD sneakers being all the rage of late. Which is why a collaboration between these two giants was inevitable as East meets West.

What can you expect from the collection you may ask? Where bags are concerned, you can expect 2 classics from Porter’s Tanker series that have been jazzed up with Adidas’s signature blue and 3 stripes. There’s the 2-Way Helmut Bag (SGD349), reminiscent of the ones used by air force pilots that’s also a Porter Yoshida signature silhouette.

Then there’s the street favourite 2-Way Waist Bag (SGD259) that comes with the Adidas logo attached next to Porter Yoshida’s standout rectangular logo. What’s more, the traditional orange interior gives way to Adidas’ signature blue, a nod to German sportswear giant that’s synonymous with the colour.

Besides bags, there’s also a pair of shoes, the NMD_C1 (SGD249), which is stamped with the Porter logo on the shoe’s tongue instead of Adidas. Coming in a black mesh upper with blue elements on the tabs around the sole, the shoe is equal parts sleek and chic, and looks great with a pair of rolled-up jeans.

Available at Dover Street Market Singapore’s online store from 10 June 2017, save this page on your bookmark tabs because should you miss out on this you’ll just have to pay way more over at #Carouhell and eBay. And we wouldn’t want that, would we?

Saint Laurent Opyum 110 Pumps

Designer Shoes

IMAGE: @WALNUTCRUST FOR SAINT LAURENT

A short history about those stacked initials that form the iconic YSL logo we know and love today. Designed by Adolphe Mouron Cassandre (and therefore known as the YSL Cassandre) back in 1961, it featured prominently on the French luxury house’s designs for decades. Even during Stefano Pilati’s and Hedi Slimane’s respective tenures, pieces like those YSL tees, the Belle Du Jour clutch and even the iconic Vavin bags have remained memorable till this day.

For Spring-Summer 2017, current Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello has integrated the Cassandre logo’s sleek lines into the Opyum shoe silhouette, giving the shoe that extra oomph with its architecturally sublime shape. The Opyum 110 (SGD1700) in black patent leather is in fact more than just a shoe; together with its 11 cm heel you could consider it a work of art.

But for those who are looking for a more literal piece of art they can wear every day without busting their ankles, how about the Opyum Crocodile Brooch (SGD1600)? Measuring some 7 cm in height (it’s shown above with the pumps), it’s textured to look like exotic croc in 100% gold brass, a stunning piece of jewellery that would most certainly jazz up any tee or blazer.

Both available now at Saint Laurent boutiques at ION Orchard and Marina Bay Sands, we’ll leave you with a Warhol-inspired gif of this very sexy shoe. Gorgeous, isn’t she?

Miu Miu S/S17 Wavy Rubber Slippers

Designer Shoes

IMAGE: MIU MIU

Miu Miu’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection was all about beach vibes and snazzy towel prints featured on standout outwear pieces. What completed the entire beach look were these rubber pool slides that came in an array of colours like Light Blue, Pink and Red. Miuccia being Miuccia, she took on the regular pool sandal and made it uniquely Miu Miu, complete with interesting contours and Miu Miu logos on each slide.

Think of it this way. If a mermaid had legs these slippers would surely be one of her must-haves while shopping for fresh slides – the contours on the sole and toe strap are very reminiscent of fish scales and seashells, yes? Or flattened flower petals (have some imagination, can?) which gives it that flower children/back-to-nature vibe as well.

Now available in Miu Miu boutiques in Singapore, here’s the SGD550 question. Would this upscale casual-luxe slide be added to your collection or would you be sticking to your regular Benassi slides?

Roger Vivier S/S17 Love Collection

Designer Shoes

IMAGE: ROGER VIVER

Readers of the blog will know that sometime in late-January, the blog will be filled will posts on Love, the colour red, and hearts of pure joy. Yes, Valentine’s Day is coming. The day all you lucky ladies are looking forward to – because it just means flowers, heart-shaped everything, gifts and more!

And because this is the first of the many Valentine’s Day posts I will be waxing lyrical in, I will coin this series #BagaholicboyVDay, which you can click on to search and narrow down the posts and send it over to your boy. Or you can send him the hashtag and take it as a wish-list where he’d scan through and pick the one for you. Sounds pretty much perfect right? P.S. I say, just send him the one you really love above all!

A series featuring two main icons – the word Love in a banner and a red heart with Wings, both of which are presented in tattoo-like illustrations – seemingly a way of saying ‘I will shout out my love for you, and this message will be carried over to you whenever, and wherever, and my love for you will be like a tattoo – it can never be erased away.’

This ‘Wings of Love’ graphical design is featured on two shoes this Spring Summer 2017 season. The Sneaky Viv: Roger’s first ever sneaker (SGD1440), and the Gommette Ballerina in patent leather – another classic must-have for the everyday woman (SGD1030).

And of course, you can’t miss out on the accessories. The graphic extends to the Pilgrim clutch (SGD1960) and a Mini Buckle Pouch (SGD1730) which comes with an extra metal chain strap for you to carry over your shoulder. A lovely cardholder rounds up the 3rd of the series with the cute ‘Heart-with-Wings’ print etched on one side, and the RV logo de-bossed on the other. Available now via Roger Vivier’s flagship at Ngee Ann City, just remember that love comes in many-splendoured things, with this collection taking the lead.
