United Nude event at De Bijenkorf of Amsterdam

Hi there,
It was much fun seeing Ghi trying some great and iconic shoes from the famous Dutch brand of United Nude of Rem Koolhaas.

During March, the month dedicated to shoes, the luxury department store of Amsterdam 
De Bijenkorf organised many cool mini events.
One of them was that cool one with United Nude where people (girls :) could try on some special edition models designed by other designers along Rem Koolhaas like Iris Van Herpen, and Masha Ma.
Unfortunately I hadn't planned it, so, I turned up only with my trusty but camera-crappy iPhone. 
Although, the girls of United Nude would take a little Polaroid and give it to all who dared to try some almost 20cm high heels :)

Miuccia Prada and her never ending talent in creating shoes!

Prada and its perfect wedges! 
I do have something for wedges anyway, I always find them sexier than any other type of heels and that's why I was surprised and amazed to see the whole show of Prada's Fall2014 been walked on nothing else but wedges! Open, closed, slim, chunky, any type you wish but wedges and only wedges!
I loved them and especially the bold white T-strap sandals and the three amazing high boots, the white, the red and the black!
Of course though, everything else was equally amazing! That feathered like red dress and the great chunky jacket/coats. 
I don't ever publish fashion show reviews and I most of all avoid using photos other than mine but I had to share that of Prada because I have seen more than one hundred shows in the last three weeks and not many which made me say wow.

NYFW Fall 2014 best shoes

NY fashion week of Fall2014 is ending soon and after many many shows I can publish my best shoe choices. There were many great shoes around by many designers. Although most of them nothing that we've never seen before. 
Although, there were  three collections which their shoes really stand out!

From the upcoming London FW I expect mostly amazing staff from the incredible Tom Ford and from Milan of course the queen of fashion Miuccia Prada's creations.
Till then...

Alexander Wang, the King of NY

Jean Claude Jitrois, the perfect leather fashion.

I keep my eyes on those perfect creations for some time now and I am more and more amazed. They can not get any prettier, classier or also sexier! And of course of the best possible quality.
Jitrois for leather clothing is what is Hermès for leather bags.
If I could... I would easily spend a 5 digit amount on those pieces for my love :)

Take a look and don't forget to visit Jitrois.com site and dream on :)

DIY Church's shoes dyeing and altering

Hi there,

I would like to share with you a DIY colour alteration I did to my brand new Church's shoes.
Just because they cost several hundreds, it doesn't mean that we can not change their colour or make some customisations :)

Well, I am good with my hands but some others not, 
so, I wouldn't really advise anyone to dare something like that 
but for those who feel confident, it's nothing so difficult.
I scored those great shoes at a great price but before even deciding I new that 
I would wear them only if I dyed them.

My plan was to make them completely black but actually that dark blue was great, 
the only problem was the white details and most of all, that white rubber sole.

Steps:

1. I was about to use the DYLON dye for suede and nubuck 
(mostly recommended, I used it before).
If you ever do it REMEMBER you can only dye something to a DARKER colour. You can never use a lighter colour over a dark one. It doesn't work like that with leather! 
Although I skipped that and I kept the original suede navy blue.

2. For the rubber sole I used the special car tire oil marker! They come in several colours (mostly white) and they are used to mark on the car tires or freshen up the already white writings (Bridgestone, Michelin etc.) So, they paint permanently and their colour is elastic, it doesn't crack due to the constant stretching of rubber.

3. For the white tiny leather details and lace holes I used a normal permanent black marker which should stay black for several times of wearing and then maybe they would need some touching up.
Oh, yes, I used a new pair of dark blue laces too. 
I would never bother with those leather laces, I hate those in all shoes!

There you are,
a new version of the Church's Hirst model of summer 2013

Ghi in Zanotti boots. Even Cowgirls get te blues...

Ghi got some time ago those PERFECT iconic Giuseppe Zanotti boots
but due to the busy times etc. I couldn't do a shooting the way I wanted.
But their time had come. 
Their American western style led me to choose a suitable location and I tried to give the best mood by choosing black & white with a sepia tone.

I loved her total black look, she totally rocked those Zanotti's. 
She also wears her favourite ARMA biker's leather jacket and a pair of Pull&Bear stretch and skinny jeans.

I hope you like this little fashion editorial!
