“Gold has become almost a neutral palette color for us. We began exploring gold in Spring ’10 and continued it into our Fall ’10 collection. Whether in a subtle manner or with a stronger presence on the shoe, gold can enhance or make an outfit. Beyond color, we’re focusing on subtle edginess, re-examining the art of drapery and [using] luscious leathers and shearlings to create a warm, elegant yet casual [look].”

“To me, animal is the new neutral. I recently saw ‘Out of Africa’ again and wanted to celebrate the strength of women by offering materials inspired by the movie. I also mixed in a touch of glamour because every woman writes her own adventure and deserves to have shoes that take her anywhere, in any mood.”

~ Vince Camuto,
founder and CEO, Vince Camuto

 

“The color that felt new to me is a light blue shade that I am calling ‘moonstone.’ It is like an upgrade from all the gray that’s out there, but you can still mix it with black for a neutral look. I’m using it in both shoe and boot silhouettes for fall.”

~ Elizabeth Olsen,
designer, Olsenhaus
