I’ve been a longtime fan of Rachel Antonoff‘s designs. In fact, her first presentation was the very first fashion show I ever covered for this blog! So it makes me happy to see that she is finally getting the recognition and publicity she deserves.
One of the things taking her career to the next level: her collaboration with Bass Shoes. Full disclosure: I am ADDICTED to these shoes. Not only are they comfortable, but the designs –especially of her oxfords– are unparalleled in cuteness, and comfort at their price point. I own multiple pairs, and whenever I wear my black & clear oxfords, in particular, I have strangers stopping me on the street to ask about them.
When I stopped by backstage before Rachel’s show, the first thing I noticed wasn’t the hair, makeup, or clothes– it was the new shoes. I am so excited to say that there are more clear shoes on the way!
Rachel Antonoff’s whimsical, girlie creations frequently draw their inspiration from childhood situations. Spring 2012 was no different, and based on a “haunted house” theme, artfully brought to life out using a set made of adorable illustrations by Alia Penner.
For her third season of collaborating with shoe company Bass, Rachel has created some of her best styles yet! I can personally attest that the shoes are both stylish and comfortable! I’ll be stalking this pair until they are available in Spring
