We all love a great shoe collaboration. It’s kinda of exciting knowing your favorite person in the entertainment industry is teaming up with some of your favorite brands; we get to see their creative side in fashion, a side we don’t get to see often . I’ve been ‘Instastalking’ for a while now and noticed that few of my favorites are joining with big shoe brands for the first and second time.
The soultry singer and down to earth Keyshia Cole is teaming up with Steve Madden for the second time. We first got a taste of Cole and Madden back in 2012 when her line was full of platforms, pumps and animal prints. For the second go round it looks like we can see more metallics in funky colors, gladiator inspired shoe styles, and sexy-flirty straps (I love a sexy strap around the ankle!) The promo pictures from her shoe line looks just as fun as her shoes, I would pair a lot of her shoes with a simple ensemble just to make a bold statement. I’m looking forward to what she’s delivering for sure.
Even though this lil’ lady stays quiet in the background, a lot of her work speaks loud and clear. Celebrity stylist and shoe designer Emily Bustamante, or better known as Emily B, has added shoe designer under her long list of titles. Her work can be seen and worn from brands like Bakers and boutiques in and around a major city near you. But this first collaboration with Bebe as its Creative Director will be quite interesting. I remember being a huge Bebe fan in high school, that was my “go to” store for homecomings (LOL). I was a fan of their clothes but not so much their shoes. I’m interested to see what she’ll bring to the table, and how she’ll bring back customers to their shoe collection. I didn’t see too many hints as to what she’ll be delivering, but she is putting in work judging by the endless photos of her in meetings and showrooms gearing up for greatness. I did peep a couple of shoes I wouldn’t mind gracing the streets in, I guess I’ll have to wait and see!
I’m excited for these ladies and their new ventures, who do you think will deliver this summer? Who will you probably be wearing the most? If any…
