How to Find the Perfect Pair of Shoes (if you’re designer Rebecca Minkoff)
First, go on the hunt for a handbag that will shamelessly take you from Saturday night to Sunday brunch. Nada. Make it (see: Morning After Bag).
Then, tirelessly search for just-toss-it-on clothing that’s all style, no schlump. Score zero. Make it (see: Ilaria dress; Deathstitch leather jacket).
Finally, look high and low for a pair of (relatively) sensible heels with sex appeal. Come up with zilch. Design a footwear homage to the ultimate lady vagabond — a glamorous type with a bit of ’70s sauciness and a soft spot for vintage.
Put Janis Joplin record on repeat. Devise the perfect shortie Western boot (Doll). Dream up a Haight-meets-High Street stunner (Trott).
Channel Bianca Jagger. Get strap happy with a pair of patterned heels (Foxy). Go for a kicky, round-toe stacked pump (Vamp).
Now you really have it made.
