Come to me Spring
March 2, 2007
I was rejoicing at the thought of being able to wear nice shoes outside again – the streets and sidewalks were all clear save the west sides of north-south streets were the sun doesn’t shine during the day (that still had remnants of ice and yucky salt). But Mother Nature unleashed her will upon us once again and we are once more in the depths of winter. The daily ritual of toting good shoes to an fro and changing once inside is getting tedious and absurd -but grumbling about the weather is probably as tedious…
Francesca Giobbi‘s footwear however, is something to rejoice. A beautiful palette of prints and colours that exude such a bright Brazilian spirit! Something neat is a series of photos on her site showing the painstaking production process that results in such wonderful creations as my favourites of her s/s 2007 collection. Oh, how they make me wish for clear sidewalks.
