Nicole Brundage, Fall-Winter 2008

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the Manolo has previously mentioned the shoes of the young designer Nicole Brundage, but he must again say how impressed he is with her work.

But, judge for yourself, here are two examples from her new Fall-Winter 2008 Collection, available for viewing at her website.

Here is the Elenoire from the Nicole Brundage. The Manolo loves this combination of the natural leather with the peep toe.

And this shoe above is the Margot, which has the exceedingly sexy ankle strap.

All of this is yet more evidence that Nicole Brundage is the young person to be watched.

    So, I e-mailed Saks about a beautiful pair of NB shoes that I bought on Oct. 15, 2007 and have never worn. Here is my message (below) and the return message:

    I would like to attach two photos of a pair of shoes that I bought in your store, the evening of October 15, 2007. I don’t see any facility that enables me to do that. They have never been worn. They are designed by Nicole Brundage.

    I put them on last week, only to discover that one of the decorative pieces on
    the buckle was missing. I am not certain it was there when I bought them, as I
    tried them on quickly and the piece that is missing is similar in color to the
    piece of metal it fell off. Regardless of whether or not the piece was there
    when I bought them, one would not anticipate a decorative piece to fall off a
    pair of shoes that cost more than $600.00 and had never been worn.

    Would you please contact the manufacturer, as soon as possible, to see if it is possible to get the missing piece or buckle replaced.

    Please advise how I can forward the pictures.

    Thank you
    Alice Giddy

    Any idea of Nicole’s e-mail address. I really don’t want to be calling Saks 6 th floor shoe sales floor (with its own Zip code) and trying to work this out.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have bought, probably 10 pairs or more of her shoes and I have never had a problem with them. They are absolutely beautiful and furthermore, they are so comfortable. Thank you, Tani Barquet.
