After just coming back from a long weekend in NYC, there was one trend I saw on the streets of Tribecca, both during the day and night- the wedge sneaker.Specifically the styles from Isabel Marant.At first I thought, what a great style solution for day- great to walk in, looks chic and you can wear them with everything. But then at 2 different upscale restaurants at night I spotted the Marant sneaker on super chic women wearing them instead of heels. This I thought was news.
Here are some fun facts about Ms Marant:
-Marant was born in Paris in 1967 to a German mother – a model – and a French photographer father.
“I was known to everybody at school for being a type of notorious nut,” she said in 2011.
-In 1994 she set up her own label with a studio in Paris’ trendy Marais district. As when she was young, she bases her creations on her own style and tastes:
“I am my first customer… My approach has always been: would I like to wear this garment? I do prêt-a-porter; I do not revolutionise the fashion world,” she said in 2011.
In June 2012 she was awarded Fashion Designer of the Year at British Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards.
So I continued my style search, and at dinner one night with a good friend- who is a 4th grade teacher, she told me oh all the kids are wearing Ash sneakers. This brand is similar to the Marant sneaker but a bit less expensive.
Mixed with two awesome creative ideas:Leonello Calvani and Patrick Ithier, the famouse brand Ash is founded. With only about ten years development, Ash is known to all over the world. Made up of Italian leathers and craftsmanship, Ash Shoes leave you an deep impression that they are luxury design. The fashionable style and idea affect one generation after another. Fashion conscious is filled with the brand. Ash Sneakers are one of the most popular shoes in Ash store. Many people get crazy about the shoes because they are fashionable and comfortable. Whenever you wear ash shoes, you will find that you are the superstar in public. For young people, no doubt, it is adorable.
My final style search led me into a friends closet and she pulled out a great pair of wedge sneakers from Jeffery Campbell.This price was the cheapest by far at $199 a pair.
Here is a lineup of my favorite picks and how to wear them.Advertisements
