Right at the beginning of this brand new year, we had compiled horoscopes for the humble extremities of men everywhere. Ladies, it’s now your turn, so take a seat and read ahead as we reveal the road down which your shoes (and destiny) shall lead you! Discover the window into your soles—through fashion, of course. 

 

capricorn-women

 

 

 

The Capricorn woman is the essence of practicality. Her wardrobe might be quite sparse, by fashionista standards, but everything in it will be there for a purpose. No wonder then that you’ll pick up the Peau ballerinas in a jiffy. Comfortable and stylish, you’ll use them for years. Remember that the third time you step on someone’s toes while wearing them, you’ll have found your business (or life) partner.

 

 

 

aquarius-women

 

 

 

The ultimate non-conformist, an Aquarius woman is often positively contrary and never a follower of fashion. Our designers assure us that these gladiator flats are adequately prepared to face the challenges of modern life including muddy puddles and ill-mannered drivers. Side effects include a tendency to shrivel up when faced with lions. Also, avoid amphitheatres, they bring back bad memories.

 

 

 

pisces-women

 

 

The everlasting muse spinning lazy circles around her latest conquest, the Piscean woman keeps her secrets secure behind inscrutable dark eyes. Over the centuries, poets have oft written paeans to her, in the following manner:

“She walks in beauty, like the night,

Of cloudless climes and starry skies.”

Occasionally clumsy, the Ciervo stacked metallic wedges will support you against uneven pavements, potholed roads and leaps of faith.

 

 

Aries-women

 

 

 

Always three steps ahead of the game, the Arian woman is a fearless and feisty trendsetter. Not much for a frilly wardrobe, the Gloire sneakers tick all your boxes. Champagne colored brogues, not only will they take you where you need to go but they’re also adept at sneaking away, as necessary.

 

 

 

 

taurus-women

 

 

 

 

The Taurean woman is a connoisseur as far as quality is concerned. Always attracted to the very best, she is practical, classy, and tasteful. You prefer embellished flats to sky-high stilettos, so the Reflat sandals will be right up your alley. The criss-cross ties will have the world watching as you stride in style.

 

 

gemini-women

 

 

 

Frequently noticed for her impeccable fashion sense, the Geminian woman enjoys tweaking trends and styles to uniquely suit her. Never afraid to mix things up, these gorgeous Beriche dual-toned pumps pen the statement you are so used to making. If you hear a glass shattering, remember it comes from the hearts breaking as you walk past.  

 

 

 

cancer-women copy

 

 

 

Mercurial and affectionate, the Cancerian woman favors a timeless appeal. Slip into these classic peep toes and watch as history rewinds rapidly. Once again, you are Helen of Troy. But, ah, perhaps try to avoid the wars, yes? With great beauty comes great responsibility.

 

 

 

 

leo-women

 

 

 

Padding around with exquisite, lithe grace, you can expect the queen of the jungle to always be a picture of sartorial elegance. Slip into your satine metallic stilettos, you eternal belle of the ball. You will be inundated with requests on the dance floor. Do not turn your nose up at that man who can’t dance the waltz.

 

 

 

virgo-women

 

 

 

Sophisticated and minimalistic, the Virgoan woman is elegance personified. You’ll feel particularly fond of the scaled texture and blue pumps. Slipping into them will result in the prophesied appearance of your fairy godmother. Listen to her advice and be wary of strange men even if they offer you glass slippers.

 

 

 

libra-women

 

 

 

Grace and charm are the birthright of the Libra woman and she wields them well. These suede loafers will never let you step incorrectly and the charming weave pattern will be to your taste. Be warned, you might experience a sudden craving for watermelon and mustard. Satisfy it and move on, and remember, library nooks will now always welcome you.

 

 

 

scorpio-women

 

 

 

The Scorpio woman doesn’t believe in fifty shades of gray. Always just, she looks at the world in black and white. Strangely enough then, you’re hard to pin down when it comes to fashion. Shoes are your guilty pleasure and at first glance, you’ll fall head over heels for the Visso flats. Over hills and over dales, you will gaily trot. A long walk with a handsome stranger is overdue.

 

 

 

sagittarius-women

 

 

 

Inquisitive and incessantly curious, everything fascinates the Sagittarian woman. This seeker of the truth will feel right at home in the Scarpe sneakers. Silver-spun out of moonbeams and blessed by the goddess Athena, they follow the path of wisdom. Listen to owls and avoid spiders lest they trap you in their vengeful webs.

The Moine – Double Monk Strap

Commissioned as a dressier and more durable alternative to the sandals worn by monks, also known as a monk shoe (of course), the monk strap has, in certain circles, been described as the “most advanced” dress shoe. Resting comfortably between the Oxford and the Derby, it’s a spiffy alternative to a lace-up.

Moine. Nonchalant perfection.

And so, we have the Moine Beige. The narrow ombre toe pairs perfectly with the slightly off-set buckles to present a classic double monk strap. However, the beige leather adds a chic, bohemian vibe. Sleek and unusual, this shoe stands apart. Continue Reading…

No one’s looking at your shoes? We disagree. On a hot date, they are your wingmen. At a job interview, they’re your resume. Believe us when we say that a great pair of formal shoes go a mighty long way.

Statistics state that although shoes cover only 5% of the body, they make up more than 30% of the visual judgment when sizing up a stranger.

However, when putting together a formal look, we’re sometimes (read: always) guilty of neglecting our choice of shoes. Not to mention the seemingly endless array of shoe styles makes the process confusing and overwhelming. That’s where we come in.

If you’re looking to up your shoe game and have no idea where to begin, here’s a guide to the what’s what of formal shoes. Continue Reading…

The Dolio & The Bagali

December 1, 2016

The Dolio – Brogue Oxford

Back in the 1800s, the hybrid Brogue Oxford shoe left an indelible mark on the world.  Effortlessly amalgamating textured motifs and closed lacing, it proceeded to sashay into formal gatherings and events with an ease one can but gape at. Having taken over the boardroom as well as the ballroom, it stands proud as one of the go-to formal shoe styles for all occasions around the world.

Dolio. Stride in style.

 

Presenting the Dolio. Handcrafted by the finest artisans, this Brogue Oxford employs chevrons in a rhombic pattern to craft a shoe that strikes the perfect balance between dapper and formal. The classic low heel coupled with the back-in-style narrow round toe are the icing on your cake. Usually worn in a formal setting, pair the Dolio with chinos and a cashmere sweater to easily pull off a semi-formal look. Continue Reading…
