SHOE ENVY: Rodarte Fall 2012

Kate and Laura Mulleavy turned to Australia for inspiration when designing the Rodarte Fall 2012 collection, and we’re crushing on the high-waisted wool pants, beautifully tailored double-breasted blazers and whimsical cool-girl gowns as usual. But the shoes, THE SHOES, have nearly thrown us backwards right out of our chairs. Look closely inside those Plexiglas heels, and you’ll notice they are filled with sand. Though much chicer, it brings to mind craft projects of yore –  a sentimental and all around extraordinary idea. Not to mention the thick color blocked leather and metal plate detail adds to the wonderment below the ankles. Click for the gallery after the jump.
