Alexander Wang’s shoes are just getting better and better. Last year’s Anais came as a surprise to me, in all their elegant metallic glory. I disliked the over-worked and over-exposed Frejas so much that I wasn’t prepared for such simplicity from the designer.
Then came Liya, some kind of achievement in minimalism (that seems to be my ongoing theme this week). The pointy pump is so refreshing (welcome back!) and its delicate shape is balanced out by the thick ankle strap. And the heel is lovely.
$495 at Holt Renfrew.
PS. Of course, there is the matter of that terrible lawsuit accusing Wang of running a sweatshop, but unless he is proven guilty, I’m not going to get into it.
