VANS Spring summer 2014, It’s a season of inspiration that is inspired by the lowly Vans. The staple of Skaters and punkers alike. The top houses of Paris got inspired to concoct the most amazing Skaters this side of the Atlantic. Celine, Givenchy, Lanvin and Saint Laurent created their rendition. They’ve amplified the quality, design and price tag to bring you the summer’s blockbuster in comfort sneaker. I love a good inspiration especially when it could be tracked to its lowly source. In your efforts to get the look, you can either go to the source or get a glossed up, dolled up version brought to you via the best houses of Paris.

SPRINGS ARTISTIC ENDEAVOURS One of the top trends for spring summer 2014 is the influence of art on fashion led by the mega design houses of Celine, Dior and Prada. For these mega brands Fashion imitates art. At Celine with its painterly strokes and simple modern silhouettes, the shoes and accessories were the ones that ground the collection in its art reference. Namely Cubism. Celine presented shoes with a sphere heel and a skeletal rectangular heel and mules that retain that sculptural detail of a chunk of Marble and Malachite. Dior’s Dali inspired collection was all about surrealism. Drenched in acidic colors and morphed with space age shape and technology. The footbed of Dior’s shoes is equipped with memory foam technology, adding...
