Luxury women’s shoe brand, Carolinna Espinosa, is pleased to unveil its Spring/Summer 2015 collection, due to hit stores this coming February. Yesterday, we had the pleasure of viewing the highly anticipated collection at their corporate offices. We were treated to brunch and delectable treats as we previewed their amazing Spring/summer styles.
Always striving to create the perfect shoe that is eye-catching, comfortable and sophisticated all at once, Carolinna Espinosa stays true to these values with this collection while applying their signature modern take on design. Using memory foam cushioning as a staple of comfort in each collection, Creative Directors Charles Amar and Gianni Velasche have added daring hues, feminine embellishments, and laser-cut scalloping to showcase an entirely fresh collection for women who don’t want to compromise between elegance and comfort.
Floral patterns have accented the runways over the last year in jewelry, accessories and patterned clothing. For the 2015 spring season, the floral trend evolves in its use atop new materials such as patent, snake embossed leather and other textiles. Carolinna Espinosa has managed to incorporate this trend beautifully into the collection, using muted color ways to match any look. The Sandra flat along with the Celie and Socialite heels show off a white palette under a pattern of gray leaves and floral prints for an understated print to match the everyday basics.
Another prevalent detail seen in the collection is pearl and jewel embellishments, a trend that started with earrings, rings, layered necklaces, and has become a growing statement of femininity in footwear. A line of pearls adorn the back heel of Carolinna Espinosa’s Arabia style, creating a chic yet daring look, while the pearl detailing on the Riot flats set daintily atop a golden bow offers a more feminine touch. For a bolder look, the Pepper sandals and Sniper flats feature vibrant multi-color jewel accents throughout the strappy tops – a detail that is sure to bring out our freshly pedicured toes during the warmer months.
It’s evident that Spring and Summer 2015 will be all about playing up our feminine side, and a growing trend to do just that is scalloping, a look seen in hemlines and sleeves, and now in shoes with Carolinna Espinosa’s latest range that offers scalloped laser cut detailing. Taking cues from the Resort collection, the Royal flat is an energetic combination of the floral and scallop trend, featuring a laser cut floral pattern all around and scalloped edges for a spritely spring feel. To continue the popular laser cut-out trend, the Stark sandal and Premium heel add a perfect pop of geometric style with their playful oval laser cut-outs and graceful ankle straps.
Lastly, this collection extends the metallic hardware trend from fall with new adaptations for the springtime. For the Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Carolinna Espinosa opted for a softer take with this bold accent. Adding a woven chain detail around the entirety of the Peach heeled sandal and throughout the entire wedge on the Pure style, these shoes are reminiscent of a modern day Grecian goddess. A thicker band of golden metallic hardware across the top of the casual Ripen flat is another taste of this stylish detailing.
Aside from our metallic hues, the collection includes bright, rich colors as seen in the deep turquoise Marble heel and the translucent/ pearlized red, pink, and yellow combination of the Perna heels. In a further nod to comfort, the collection will also feature casualized rubber soles on dressier shoes like the Sofie and the Bedford. Completing the collection are the always on-trend color combinations of black-and-white, and black-and-nude; the Cole, Mercer, and Cooper heels, as well as the Steele wedge, which are sure to become the perfect go-to’s in our spring and summer closet selection.
By combining contrasting details, colors and prints, Carolinna Espinosa’s Spring/Summer collection for 2015 offers a completely refreshed, dynamic and feminine look for the warmer seasons while retaining a smart, refined quality; perfect for the modern and elegant woman on the go.
