The designs featured panthers, elephants, monkeys and dragonflies crafted with the animal’s true mobility in mind. The monkey pendant arms and legs swing in full action!

The Barbara Briones Spring 2012 collection is in a word, distinct. Each detail crafted from the heel to the impeccable stitching signifies passion. Barbara Briones, a Chilean native leaves no detail unnoticed in the art of shoe making, fusing the artisan old world craftsmanship of shoe making into the 21st century. Slick platforms and perforated leather with cross-stitch designs made my heart skip a beat. A Barbara Briones shoe follows its own path and blazes a new trail with lemon- cream combinations fresh from a morning Spring stroll. The details are endless and appreciated from basket weaved leathers to intricate piping to create a fresh color block, it’s all about the Barbara Briones signature. The evening looks within the collection combine a sky high, satin gold heel wrapped in liquorish black suede. The night does not only belong to black with cherry and berry colored strapped suede platforms are oh so worthy of any red carpet event. The Barbara Briones Spring 2012 collection is a myriad of flavors seducing you this Spring.
Feiyue, translation, Chinese = flying forward is a collection of athletic footwear based out of France, is every bit of magnifique. Bold colors coupled with signature Feiyue logos make these kicks anything but mundane. The Spring lineup has edge and individuality but still embraces its Euro style. My beloved pair of the collection, style 10N28E, Black CMYK, give you an all black impression with a white side sole but as the sneaker takes to the sidewalk you are surprised with rainbow of colors beneath its sole. The materials used to construct the various sneaker styles go from predictable leather and suede to nontraditional canvas and wool. There are so many options with Feiyue to express your own Spring style.
