Here are some of my favorite work from Jimmy Choo's recent collection. While I was dealing with jet lag in China last week, switching through channels, I caught a great interview with the founder and part owner of Jimmy Choo, Tamara Mellon. Listening to her explain how her vision came to live and how it was very challenging to start everything up was very inspirational. Her closet was gorgeous her apartment was perfectly decorated. After the interview I went straight to their website and found these beauties. There is really no better way to kill time when you are jet lag at 4am than browsing for shoes online.

Chloe is coming out with an excellent example of a cohesive and well made collection of women shoes this season. The well thought out use of materials such as textile, leather, rope and braided leather create a story easy to understand and desire.

These are a the perfect compliment to any outfit and I can only dream of the day I get these shoes and I pair them with my pretty blue striped dress or my favorite cropped pants and white taylored shirt.

The Proenza Schouler bag on the right is one of my favorite totes this season, the leather has a distressed look and the leather trims go perfect together. The draped dress on the bottom left is from Alexander Wang and the mens leather shoes are from Rag and Bone. For more designer treasures click here.

Biarritz Shoe by Christian Louboutin
This is the most luxurious version of a classic boat shoe I've seen. Christian Louboutin's take of a staple style is filled with careful details and simplistic finishes. The navy Italian leather and the bright white touches make for a crisp style. No man can go wrong with a leather lined boat shoe handmade in France. I am a fan of Christian's collection because of his attention to detail and the fact that they are all handmade in France by talented artisans of footwear. Guess who is planning to visit his studio in two weeks? ME!
