Carolinna Espinosa is proud to introduce their Holiday 2013 collection of shoes, building upon their fine European design pedigree to translate the latest trends for Holiday 2013 into wearable creations for the sophisticated, stylish woman as she moves with the seasons from winter to spring. The modern woman continues to inspire the Creative Directors, Charles Amar and Gianni Velasche, in this new collection which utilizes the finest Italian materials to seamlessly fuse modern architectural shapes with sophisticated heels and feminine colorways, putting forth a perfect selection of shoes that will take her from the resorts right into spring.
One key trend observed in the collection is the prevalence of the Peep-Toe Booties, which feature slightly open toes, single sole construction, and an open back – ideal for those quirky days between winter and spring, when the icy snow melts and temperatures rise just enough to enjoy more delicate footwear. The Emily Bootie bridges seasons with assurance, utilizing baby calf leathers to create a sensuous alternative to chunky winter boots.
Whether rushing from meeting to meeting, or gallery hopping, the Roman Gladiator trend makes an impression both at the office and the opening, especially when set upon classic high heels. Taking the modern woman back in time, Carolinna Espinosa offers styles in the collection, like the Jillian Sandal, which allow leather straps to ascend up the calf, making for the perfect compliment to any cropped pants. Combining the popular gladiator sandal body with the panache of a city heel provides a fresh take on two classically opposing styles, while geometric cut-outs mimic the exceptional, unbridled spirit of the contemporary woman.
Another key feature in the Holiday 2013 collection is Material Interest, whereby Amar and Velasche introduce pearlized patent leathers to create a look that is feminine, yet contemporary. As pointy toes continue to stay on trend, the use of unique pearled patent finishing adds a perfect bit of glamorous shine and subtle shimmer to a modern-day classic style.
The Holiday 2013 offering would not be complete without the trend of the moment: black and white. Playing with black and white uppers and heels, styles within the collection, like the Elaine and Monica, intrigue with graphical dichotomy, guaranteeing looks of adoration from women and men alike.
The Carolinna Espinosa Holiday 2013 collection ensures that each style embodies an essence of forward-thinking progression, as if unveiling a secret doorway into the elegance of the refined Carolinna Espinosa woman. Styles from the Carolinna Espinosa Holiday 2013 Collection range from $215 to $295, and are available from select retailers including Nordstrom.com.
